Upon first opening this coffee table book, I was overwhelmed with Parkinson's vibrant images of such colorful scenes as Arches National Park in southern Utah, the Northern Rockies of British Columbia, Bryce Canyon National Park, the melancholy scenes of fall, the Grand Canyon, Yukon Clouds and many others that make up the collection . . . Parkinson has created a highly original and fascinating book that is a testament to how spiritual words melded with vibrant visual images can help us to look at the world anew.
- Norman Goldman, Editor of Bookpleasures.

This is a book not only to read, but also to see, hear, and feel. Each photograph has a soul of its own, demonstrating why John Parkinson is an award-winning photographer. One image, titled "Celestial Light," looks as if heaven is opening and an angel is descending . . . That is a hint of the worth of this book.
- Patty Inglish, Curled Up With A Good Book

The pictures are so incredible that readers will want to sit and look at them for a long time, getting lost in their awesome beauty.
- Lillian Brummet, Enzine Articles

Visual Verse collected not just one, but two first-place awards at the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Awards Ceremony, 2007, in Washington D.C. It has also received high acclaim from national and local book reviewers.
