Overview
Perkins is a psalmist for our times, blessed with an eye that can see life in heaven's light. - Rev. James McWhinnie In his latest collection of poetry, Perkins frolics in shallows and dives the depths. Some of his poems are prayerful, some playful, some both. He is a man of faith and it shows. He says "the supposed believer who doesn't admit it, isn't." Perkins not only admits it but in this book, loudly and poetically proclaims it. Some of the poems here are love letters to his beloved wife and departed friends, some confessions of his own personal failings, but mostly the proclamations are universal, directed to us all. Many ask questions which are important though too often by others not even asked let alone answered. His dear friend, the late Rev. Fred B. Craddock wrote of Perkins's work: "Jack's mastery of the English language provides pleasure aplenty. He is on to something; you can sense it. He moves past the Apparent to the Truth to God. About this journey he is passionate but as a poet he must keep his passion on a leash, out of respect for the reader who needs room to make his or her own journey. The poet knows that truth comes suggestively not dogmatically." Perkins has authored books over years of many styles - novels, memoir, essays, photography but none more personally convicted than the collections of his poetry. Especially this latest: HomeWords.
