Album Story of Me. Paperboy Lyrics. Cause paper hands can't hold me And a paper heart can't love me I can't put my faith in something, that just folds Paper words sound pretty but they don't mean nothing to me Cause everytime they erase, I watch him go My love is fire, a lightning so I'll avoid you paperboy. Pick a place, don't fly high Pictures fade in the sunshine Paper chains look so strong, but these things never last long I could love you to the letter, but it wouldn't last forever No, no.

The prophets of old -- Moses, Elijah, Amos, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Job and others -- were truth-tellers who announced God's will. Sometimes strangely dressed, other times seemingly mad, their attention was riveted on the time and troubles in which they lived. Curiously enough, the troubles of yesterday are also the troubles of today: poverty and injustice, idolatry and abuse of power.

We often search among different spiritualities for guidance on how to lead our lives and how to find that kernel of truth, forgetting that all were originally derived from Scripture -- the words of Scripture pronounced by the prophets and then again by Jesus, the last prophet. Drawing on Scripture and a treasure house of stories, especially from the Jewish tradition, McKenna breathes life into the prophets and opens their messages to us.

ms. mckenna has written a very readable book for a broad audience. i think it is a good book to start with if you are unfamiliar with the hebrew prophets, getting to the heart of their message and passion. i also think its a good book for those more familiar with the prophets. the final chapter, which i enjoyed and found refreshing in ways, may be a bit edgy for those who take a stricter application of the word "prophet" in the hebraic sense. i will admit that while i did find the last chapter relevant to our current situation, i do think it steps outside the mold of classical biblical prophecy. but it demonstrates ms. mckenna's view of a God who passionately cares about the whole of creation, and that the Divine is constantly speaking to us, often is ways we don't expect.
