More than twenty years ago I ducked
out of a San Francisco
rain shower into a doorway, as it turned out, the doorway to a steep staircase
leading up five flights to an artist’s loft. I entered and saw the strangest
sight.


One entire wall was spanned by a
wooden frame stretched with a canvas. But not just any canvas. This one was a Read more of this blog post »

Douglas’s Recent Updates

Douglas Bond is now friends with Rebecca Knox
The Thunder by Douglas Bond
"A great novelized summary of the life of John Knox. Great for middle schoolers and up. The life and times of this reformer reminds the reader of the importance of contending for the faith. "
The Thunder by Douglas Bond
"Douglas Bond is my number one favorite historical fiction author. [My second favorite would probably be H. Rider Haggard, author of "King Solomon's Mines" and "Pearl Maiden."]

Anything Bond writes is excellent and I'd highly recommend."

“Good writers don’t moralize, nor do they preach, but they do create longing for the true and the beautiful, and that is why you must write with Christ at the center of your reason for writing. That does not mean that every book must be a retelling of Luke’s gospel, however, every worthy book written by a Christian will direct readers away from self, and sin, and put them on a quest for God and his gospel. Create longing for these things.”
Douglas Bond

“Good writers don’t moralize, nor do they preach, but they do create longing for the true and the beautiful.”
Douglas Bond

“Let others choose the sons of mirth, To give a relish to their wine; I love the men of heavenly birth, Whose thoughts and language are divine.18”
Douglas Bond, The Poetic Wonder of Isaac Watts
