Your Weekend Worldview Reader

There’s only a couple days left to order The Owlings: Book Two and have it delivered in time for Christmas. Thanks to everyone for helping to support this project. It hit #2 on new releases in genre.

Any work that I point to is not an endorsement, but rather an invitation for you to think deeply about your faith and the world around you.
