Hey, I Read Your Book!

 "Hey, I read your book!"I've lost count how many times I've heard that from people I meet. It's a little embarrassing for them (and seems a bit self-serving for me) if I reply by asking, which one? That was a completely accurate thing to say twenty-one years ago (though there were obviously many fewer people who had reason to say it back then). But with gift giving upon us, and with our

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

“There is scarcely anything in this world which can more turn or bend hither and thither the ways of men than music,” said Calvin.”
Douglas Bond, The Betrayal: A Novel on John Calvin
