The first volume in a collection of contemporary fiction that combines the artistry of critically acclaimed writers with a clear Christian worldview.
From Homer Hickam, the best-selling author of ROCKET BOYS - which later became the movie OCTOBER SKY to editor and contributing bestselling author Bret Lott, this collection spans a talented community writing an eclectic blend of fiction.
Each piece stands alone as stellar fiction. And each piece confronts us with who we are and forces us to look deeply at the human condition. From the dirt lanes of North Africa to the suburbs of California, exuding lightheartedness and profundity, hilarity and tragedy, these stories will take you on a fresh and entertaining journey.
An anthology of short stories from a distinctly Christian worldview, edited by million-selling author Bret Lott. The brainchild of Bret Lott, whose novel, Jewel, topped the New York Times charts and outsold all other Oprah Book Club picks, this volume presents a lively mix of stories from authors known and unknown. Several have penned national bestsellers; many have received both the literary and popular acclaim. They include Lott himself as well as Homer Hickam (Rocket Boys/October Sky), Mary Kenagy, Marsena Konkle, Larry Woiwode, Lauren Winner, James Schaap, and more. The result is a volume that is rewarding to read, notably accomplished, and unapologetically Christian. But don't expect the trite or the traditional. This collection is exactly what it set out to be: a challenging exploration of the art of Christian fiction.
Bret Lott's novel, Jewel, was a New York Times bestseller and was one of the forty-six novels chosen for the original Oprah Book Club. According to Publishers Weekly, it was the best-selling of all Oprah Book Club picks. Lott is writer-in-residence and professor of English at College of Charleston, and lives with his wife Melanie in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
Larry Woiwode is a novelist and the poet laureate of North Dakota, where he resides.
James Calvin Schaap, a professor of English at Dordt College and president of the Chrysostom Society, is the award-winning author of twenty-two books. He lives in Sioux Center, Iowa.
