Clock of the Covenant coming in 2016

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.


The Brown House Stories are on Amazon now.

My stories about my quiet life in Ohio during World War II are available on Amazon. I was three years old at the time, and the only fighting I did during The War was with my brothers. The book is The Brown House Stories: A Child’s Garden of Eden.
