Publisher's Description

It's about life, the turns it takes, the people along the way, its unexpected graces, its crushing moments, its bewilderments, its joys, and its questions. The theme all the way through is redemption, and that word has a lot of different meanings. What these stories add up to is an unconscious search for redemption from everything in life that goes wrong, that threatens, that takes. It's about redemption in the sense that people whose stories begin with aching can end in joy and, people who have things stolen from them in life can receive back ten-fold, unexpectedly.

As to the individual stories, they're enjoyable essays that people identify with easily and there is encouragement and even a little relief from the day or the Garrison Keillor approach. People want to know they’re not alone, and that there's hope seeing ourselves in others' experiences.

Author Bio

Steve Van Winkle was raised in Lincoln, NE in a home that struggled beneath the crushing weight of divorce in a culture unprepared for its devastation. He met Christ when he was 17 and began a journey that continues to this day. Moving to Bozeman after high school and becoming a member of Fellowship Baptist Church, he followed the
Lord’s call to ministry and attended Baptist Bible College, graduating in 1992. More importantly, he met Cheryl along the way, and 3 wonderful kids and over 20 years later, they are embarking on their third decade of ministry in the only church Steve has pastored; he has been pastor of FBC for 20 years. Steve has degrees from Baptist Bible College and Grace Theological Seminary (MA) as well a black belt in Taekwon-do. In addition to adjunct adjunct teaching at Boston Baptist College, he also has contributed to National publications, such as “Leadership Journal” and “HomeLife” as well as The Baptist Bible Tribune and several book projects. When not preaching or teaching, Steve can be found in the yard playing catch with his kids, in the bleachers cheering for his kids, in front of the TV cheering on the Cornhuskers, in the water fishing or in the field hunting.
