Author Rick Martin's New Book 'Envision Religion and Other Stories' is a Collection of Poetry and Prose Exploring the Joys and Challenges of the Human Experience

Recent release 'Envision Religion and Other Stories' from Page Publishing author Rick Martin is a compilation of lighthearted stories and verse celebrating the transformative power of faith to endure and overcome the obstacles of life.

​Rick Martin, a retired steelworker and musician who enjoys chess and basketball, has completed his new book “Envision Religion and Other Stories”: a creative work with an uplifting message of love and faith.

The author shares, “This is a collection of fifty poems and three short stories using religion as its theme. It has different points of view and attempts to see things in a humorous light. Poetry is often stiff, so a dash of humor does not hurt.” 

The poetry lets the creative process begin as he plays with the language before writing the longer stories. He hopes the contrasts will be colorful and illuminating.

Rick concludes, “The stories in ‘Envision Religion’, ‘My Sky Cried Aces’, ‘Shadow of the Cross’, and ‘Messenger of Light’ seem to fit in with the general theme. ‘My Sky Cried Aces’ is a story of someone who’s on the ups and downs. ‘Shadow of the Cross’ is a tale of a family coping with the death of their matriarch grandma. ‘Messenger of Light’ is a story of two unlikely companions meeting up and learning respect for each other during their ride. So, they give me a chance. I hope you will be surprised.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Rick Martin’s lighthearted and contemplative book is an entertaining work for readers of faith.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Envision Religion and Other Stories” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
