Surprise! Grace Sticks Now Available for Purchase on Amazon

GraceStickscoverThis is one of those rare moments when I’m flooding the blogosphere with two posts in one day and hoping you’ll forgive me….because yesterday publicist Caitlin McKenzie of Cascade—a shout-out to Caitlin, editor Rodney Clapp, and the wonderful people of Wipf & Stock—radioed in (kidding) with the news that Grace Sticks (Cascade) is actually up on Amazon here as of yesterday and available for purchase ($17.99)!

Or, you can buy discounted copies on the Wipf & Stock website here ($15).

A reminder: all author proceeds for the first 1,000 copies sold will go in entirety to support the Malala Fund. After being shot in the head by the Taliban, 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai has only redoubled her efforts to support the education of girls in cultures where girls who want to learn face violence and oppression. I hope you’ll consider buying a copy or two and supporting Malala’s cause.

As I say in the book’s dedication, this book is for anyone anywhere who has ever heard a version of The Way, The Truth and The Life that made them feel more lost, swindled or less alive—and who made for the open road.

I hope you enjoy it—and, will you let me know what you think?

Jesus and the Rich Man: A Sermon on the "Hitler" of Passages.
It's rare that I find myself thinking about Sunday's sermon midweek. This Sunday our pastor Drew Ditzel preached on the familiar story of Jesus and the rich man (Mark 10). The rich man, who says he has kept all the commandments perfectly and has lived a righteous life, comes to Jesus asking what mor

The Lie of Invulnerability
This last week has been insane. Family sickness, repairs, car issues, multiple calls from school nurses, including one in which the nurse expressed concern my 7-year-old son had been bitten by a brown recluse spider...and just when I thought it couldn't get worse...viral pinkeye. Two puffy, leaky, r

Humor Relief for Religious Extremism
Once again, humor and satire are coming to my aid this morning, this time in response to the twisted and evil extensions of religion that seeks to coerce and control with violence and worldly forms of power (best embodied these days in the form of ISIS and its affiliates). The Palestinian televis
