My next book, The Clock of the Covenant, will be published by Xulon Press in 2016. Target date for the print edition is September 15, 2016.
The book is a collection of stories about life in a small congregation of the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) in the 1940s and early 1950s. The stories are comical, tragic, or poignant in turns. The theology of the church is embedded in the stories and elaborated in short essays late in the book.
People who grew up in similar churches may see themselves in some of the stories. Some may be surprised to see how different church life was then. People from other church traditions may find this pattern of church life quaint, even archaic. These are among the reasons I wrote the book.
