Publisher's Description

Thomas, a blacksmith in the Norwegian mountain village of Bergland, has grown tired of simply going through the motions of day-to-day life. He can’t shake the intrigue he feels about the picturesque mountain that stands at the edge of the village—normally considered a gigantic monument to the dangers and risks that lay outside what is known.

Now Thomas is facing the biggest challenge of his life—confronted with the task of sacrificing everything he holds dear to try and save what he loves most.

Courageously turning away from the fears that keep other villagers trapped in their routine, Thomas breaks tradition to discover what truths the mountain may hold for him. What he finds will cause him to question everything he has believed, and lead him to life-changing decisions that will affect every aspect of his life.

The Messenger is an engaging allegory about awakening to hope and discovering a life full of glorious significance.

Take the journey up the mountain and see what it holds for you.

Editorial Reviews

"Mark and Cecil are fresh voices who provide life answers that stand the test of time."

- DAVE RAMSEY, Nationally syndicated radio host and New York Times best-selling author 


"The Messenger is a fable about hope and discovering a life full of meaning. You will be challenged and inspired to climb whatever mountain is in front of you. "

- JON GORDON, author of The Carpenter and The Seed 

"This world is starved for hope, and The Messenger is dripping with it, giving us a story we can all step into and find our place in. There is a positive energy coursing through this writing, and in a time when beauty and goodness seem difficult to find, this book helps us have eyes to see it."
—John Pavlovitz, pastor, author, and founder of The Table Ministry


"The Messenger a simple, yet emotionally complex tale of com- passion and virtue. Set in a remote Scandinavian village of yesteryear, The Messenger tugs at each heart string it touches, taking the reader step by step through a broken father’s ascent of a snow-capped mountain called life. With this novella, the authors create ’instant folklore’ that begs to make its way into countless bedtime story moments."

—Jefferson Moore, actor, writer, and director at Kelly’s Filmworks 

"This book has a message for us: ’Your dreams matter and you are not alone.’ It is a beautiful reminder that, while it takes cour- age, the story in our hearts can and must be pursued. So if you are ready for a partner on your journey to a life of hope and passion, The Messenger is for you."

—Doug Pagitt, author of Flipped, pastor, Goodness Conspirator

"The Messenger offered a journey into my own heart, triggering reflection on all areas of life. Smeby and Kemp tell this story in a simple yet boldly direct way that caused me to stop and think on almost every page."
—Matthew Clark, Chief Operating Officer of Churchill Mortgage Corporation, Brentwood, TN


"The Messenger is a simple tale that offers big hope to anyone willing to risk the climb."

—Donna VanLiere, New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Shoes and The Good Dream

    The Messenger is a wonderful story of how stepping out of your comfort zone can bring amazing things to your life. I loved the relationship between Thomas and his family and friends. The book's message is truly a journey into hope. One of the best books I have ever read by far!!!

    This review was written for The Messenger: Awakening to Hope - eBook.
    This was a touching, inspiring story about a man (Thomas) who desires more than his familiar, responsible, complacent life. He learns about letting go and taking risks. The setting of a Norwegian mountain village, beautifully portrayed by the authors, drew me into the journey. There is warmth and a reality to the characters as they interact with each other. I particularly enjoyed the relationship between Thomas and his children - how their lives were changed as his hope was restored. "The Messenger" is a beautiful allegory about the reality and depth of God's love for his children and His deep desire to bring restoration to each one of us.

    In "The Messenger", Thomas learns to step out in faith, leaving the comfortable, stifling existence he's always endured to see the fullness of life God has for him. Learn with Thomas that hope is not wishful thinking that what we want will happen, but the deep assurance that we are loved by a good God, who will be with us through whatever we encounter.
