It’s about ordinary people who did the extraordinary. I searched for this book for a long time and couldn’t find it. Subsequently, I invested two years writing the anthology based on the material I’d presented for a decade in various outreach and instructional venues. The short-stories are true, the protagonists are real, and the themes – dealing with choice, “story”, character, heroism, and change – are epic. I know it’ll be a most compelling read and that it’ll touch lives in positive and enduring ways. It was written to be cherished, re-read, and shared over a lifetime. It’s one of the reasons I wrote it. In addition to personal enjoyment, readers are encouraged to utilize it for instructional purposes in home education, Sunday school, traditional classroom, recovery center, ministry, workplace, prison, and missions. It’s not only passively alright to share the stories, you’ll want to actively do so and may proceed with my blessing.
