FINDING MOOSEWOOD, FINDING GOD


Many friends and acquaintances have been kind to read the proofs of the new book and generously offer their assessments and, I’m happy to report, their hearty recommendations. As follows:

Advance Praise for Finding Moosewood, Finding God

Jack Perkins' book transcends the common boundaries of "a biography," perhaps because it was written by an uncommon man who is among the rarest of national treasures: an original American voice. Finding Moosewood, Finding God is, in itself, a literary gem: an inspired primer on how to live one's life with passion, kindness, humor and a fierce devotion to the secret voice inside us all that steers us (if we allow it) to our heart's own destiny.

-- Randy Wayne White, Author “Doc Ford” Novels


Finding Moosewood, Finding God is as unique as Jack. It avoids the clichés of contemporary evangelicalism and introduces us to what seems like an exciting life interviewing celebrities, only to present a much more purposeful life after Jack meets the Creator of all.

Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist


Finding Moosewood, Finding God is wonderful. During a mission trip with Jack and others across African starvation lands years ago, I looked to him as our spiritual leader and our practical and loving guide. I hope people will avail themselves of his wisdom, humor and insight in this book. I thank him for so many things including helping me, too, find Moosewood.

--- Patty Duke (Anna Pearce), Actress


Jack Perkins is a poet and that means enjoyment for the reader. Jack’s mastery of the English language provides pleasure a plenty. You will want to pass this book along to your friends.

But before you do, you may want to read it again yourself. Jack 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. So, no pre-packaged conclusions here; no coercion here; no grand claims to have walked all the way around God and taken pictures. The poet knows that Truth comes suggestively, not dogmatically. The poet pauses over hints and coincidences, not with doubt’s hesitation but with reverence for the God who came veiled in flesh.

Jack Perkins is the kind of storyteller who shows us things we might miss even standing next to him. Enjoy!
