(The Hands of the Father, Unspoken Sermons) To describe Heaven in a story of grace demands a musical language. This first volume, Every Heaven: Children of God, begins a lyrical journey through the life everlasting with a struggling married couple. Sunday mornings are usually wild at the Central Street Church. But one Lords Day will top them all for John and Patricia Livingston. From moments of rage, humble worship, and unexpected grace they will be led through the Pearly Gates to explore a Heaven full of surprises and many blessed meetings. This first novel in the series, Every Heaven: Children of God explores the return to childhood and an Eden reborn. It introduces readers to a colorful cast of characters from Millertown and celebrates in story and verse a Heaven that remembers the graces a married couple received and offered on Earth. Spiritual childhood is celebrated here, and Children of God includes: The Tree of Life, a retelling of the Christian folk-story, The Ghost of Richard Brey, a cautionary tale of authentic worship, Andrews Search, a slapstick comedy of the Apostle, a crowd of 5,000, and the power of love- it also tells the tales of a humble venus fly trap who makes a meal of the heavenly hosts, of an angel with a new spin on the Resurrection, and Cheruboom!, the story of salvation as told by the bruisers who guard the Tree of Life in Paradise, and many other stories.
