Publisher's Description

This novel is inspired by the major motion picture, Letters to God, scheduled for theatrical release in spring 2010. Viewers of the film will be eager to read more of this inspiring story. Tyler, a nine-year-old boy, is stricken with incurable brain cancer and begins to write letters to God. He turns his suffering into spiritual lessons for his widowed mother, his embittered adolescent brother, and a troubled postman. Letters to God probes some of the most important and most-often-asked questions that trouble people of faith: 'Why do we suffer?' 'Where is God?' 'Why do godly, faithful children have to battle cancer?' This inspiring story of hope will help readers from all walks work toward greater understanding of God's presence and care.

Author Bio

Before focusing his creative energies on fiction, Patrick Doughtie honed his artistic skills as a newspaperman, recording artist, and screenwriter. He was one of the youngest newspaper general managers in California when he and one of his four brothers decided to move to Nashville to pursue a music career. In 1996, after his son Tyler was born, Patrick left the late nights and long trips of the music world to start a construction business in Nashville. After his son's death in 2005, he began his career as a screenwriter. Patrick has written five screenplays and two short-subject scripts in a variety of genres: comedy, drama, thriller, action, and a children's story. John Perry graduated cum laude from Vanderbilt University, with additional studies at University College, Oxford, England. Before beginning his career as an author in 1997, he was an award-winning advertising copywriter and radio producer. John has published 21 books as an author, collaborator, or ghostwriter. He is the biographer of Sgt. Alvin York, Mary Custis Lee (wife of Robert E. Lee and great granddaughter of Martha Washington), and George Washington Carver. Among other books, he has also written about the 1925 Scopes 'monkey' trial (Monkey Business, with Marvin Olasky, BandH Publishing, 2005) and contemporary prison reform (God Behind Bars, Thomas Nelson, 2006). He is a two-time Gold Medallion finalist and Lincoln Prize nominee. He lives in Nashville.

    I finished reading this book last night. All I can say is this..ITS INCREDIBLE. I have no words for this book. I hardly ever finish reading a book, right till the very end. This book was different...and it touched my soul in so many ways. I was in tears at the end. So sad but at the same time , so hopeful too. Im going to read it again...and again and again.

    This is a must read for anyone. It is far better than the movie that was excellent. It goes into more depth than the movie was able to. Highly Recommend

    So far, the book is good, but sad. I have not finished the book, but look forward to having the time.

    Read this book and it was incredible. Truly spoke to my heart and it has renewed my spirit to see how little blessings are worth more in life. Also, I saw the movie and would see it again when it comes out on dvd.
