Picked this up randomly at a discount bookstore. "Ragman" hit me hard, but when I started telling folks about it, I discovered it's a story that has already spread through much of the Christian community. Melodramatic, but a beautiful allegory of Christ's sacrifice. Like The Giving Tree only with a resurrection.

Many of the other short selections also had a profound, emotional, or epiphanic effect on me. I will definitely read more of this guy.
