Author Biography

Years ago, bestselling author & award-winning poet Jwyan C. Johnson wrote the script to a cartoon. The story starts off with a police chase to a giant dictionary: the home of our vocabulary words. Cops break down the cover, and they all rush in with their weapons drawn. And as they move around inside this book, we learn that they’re looking for one specific word: a simple 9-lettered noun. It has been bragging about its countless offenses committed against our society, against mankind. Surprising unarmed, and not dangerous, this specific word simply turns us against each other.

Detectives follow the "alphabetical” directions to the right page, the right column and the right row, only to discover that this word has disappeared! Nowadays this divisive word lives inside our minds if we let it! The accomplished mystery writer reveals that "ignorance” was the word the police were after.

The creative writings of Jwyan C. Johnson aim to biblically "protect and serve” the mind state because "ignorance is still at large in our society!” And with his latest kingdom-seeking contribution, Christian Parables, there are some places where ignorance no longer resides so we can win back each other.

(Jwyan is also the author of mystery novel Karma's Collection)

    Book Review

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

I like the idea behind Jwyan C. Johnson’s WordPlay New Christian Parables 2: The Lawyer's Lullaby & A Maze In Grace. I like the idea that the Bible can be fun and relevant to modern life, as well as a great learning experience. My mother is Southern Baptist. My father is African Methodist Episcopal Zion, usually referred to as Sunday of my life up until I was sixteen. So I know my Bible. You could say I overdosed on it because for a long while after I was out in the world on my own, the last place I wanted to be was in a church. But the teachings and habits of youth, especially those instilled in us by our parents and the respectable members of our churches, are hard to break free from. I might not ever have wanted to break free of the church if the lessons of the Bible had been presented to me in the fulfilled, interesting manner used by Jwyan C. Johnson in WordPlay New Christian Parables 2.

My version of WordPlay New Christian Parables 2 has a live link to a website that is as colorful and full of fun ways to present the Bible as the book itself. Jwyan C. Johnson has created a book that can be used as a great tool to teach kids the moral lessons of Christianity without boring them to tears. Adults can learn from WordPlay New Christian Parables 2 also, but even more important in my opinion is that the entire process can be done together as a family. I highly recommend this book to every Christian family with kids in the house. You will enjoy the parables, the fun facts, and activities, and move closer to each other as you move closer to God. I wish I had discovered this book before my kids grew up.
