'Poiēma' means 'workmanship'; it speaks of the mastery of the Master on His masterpiece; it also speaks of God's eternal workmanship on His elect from eternity before Genesis to eternity after Revelation. 'Poiēma, God's Workmanship' presents a biblical vision of God's divine masterplan which He carried out in Christ Jesus. It traces the ancient pathways of God through the ages, from Eden to the new heaven and new earth. It studies the image of Christ that God had authored, and will make perfect, in His elect from the day of creation until the day of Christ Jesus. It brings the transcendent nature of God and His Spirit of truth to bear on His Church and His Kingdom for the summing up of all things in Christ. 'Poiēma, God's Workmanship' is systematic theology made easy. Not only will it bind us together in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, it will also be the anchor of our soul, preventing us from being tossed here and there by waves of false teachings, or being carried about by every wind of deceptive doctrine. Let us swim into deeper depths, and soar onto higher heights, by the Spirit of truth. Let us be the 'poiema' of God! 'Poiēma, God's Workmanship' is available in both paperback and e-book formats.

Together with his friends, he grew up an anti-social juvenile delinquent with frequent run-ins with law enforcement authorities. One day, while breaking into the home of a family of noble standing in the city, he came face to face with the couple who had adopted a fellow street-orphan he once knew. The couple had compassion on him and adopted him as well. He was grateful for the shelter, security, new identity, unconditional love, and wealthy lifestyle provided by the adoptive parents. He knew he could become a whole new man with a noble identity and a bright future under the wings of his new parents. However, instead of making an effort to transform himself, licentiousness and hedonistic indulgence were his fill. He would go out every day and live large as usual, carousing and indulging in carnal pleasures, without realising that he was breaking the hearts of his parents, and bringing disrepute to the family's noble identity. He indulged his newfound wealth and power in vainglory and futile pursuits rather than living honourably and benevolently according to the wise counsel of 1
