Summary

The first volume in a collection of contemporary fiction that combines the artistry of critically accaimed 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 best-selling 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.
