"Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation," writes the apostle. In this collection of poetry, the author applies those phrases, responding to God's sometimes-dark providences with the light of Scriptural meditation. The manifold themes of the inspired Psalms shine out, giving endurance to those who wait for the Lord's deliverances, expressing a longing for justice to those who are confronted by God's enemies, interceding for mercy to those who are lost, and rejoicing in a salvation that is ever new. Throughout the pages a hope shines, knowing that as God comforts his disciple in any tribulation, so that comfort is offered widely to others.
"Loved from Eternity is poetry at its best. Dorothy Young is a pure soul with strong emotion, tender love, and penetrating insight as she covers the field of biblical theology and Christian experience. This is a remarkable volume, which often serves as a biblical commentary--poetry that brilliantly exegetes difficult biblical texts! We hear the voice of triumph over sin and death because of Christ. This is a book that stirs the heart, a summons of consecration to the God of all grace and mercy."
--Mark J. Larson, Pastor, Peace Reformed Church, Garner, IA
"Young is a 'set apart vessel' by whom the truths of Scripture are illumined through human experience and personality. As the Holy Spirit makes Christ Jesus preeminent in our lives, may our testimony of him be enlivened and enriched through the music of her poetry."
--Steve Jennings, Pastor, Tarpon Springs, FL
"Young's simple and Christ-exalting prose will profoundly bless any and all who read them for generations to come."
--Jim McCarthy, Pastor, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Jacksonville, FL
"Loved from Eternity exposes the spectrum of emotions from deepest despair to boundless joy. Young holds nothing back as she writes about her life. . . . Through it all the reader experiences unfailing faith and hope for every day. It's not just poetry, it's Young's story, my story, your story, and the story of the Savior's love from eternity."
--Bette Jadwin, Member, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Jacksonville, FL
