Item Description...
Confronts us with who we are and forces us to look deeply at the human condition. These stories will take you on a fresh and entertaining journey.

Publishers Description

In C.S. Lewis's classic The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Lucy asks if Aslan the lion is safe. It is quickly clarified that Aslan is not safe...but he is good. That concept serves as the foundation for this collection of short stories. While written from a Christian worldview, our goal isn't comfort food for Christians or G-rated stories that offer simplistic lessons. Instead, we're serving up stories sharpened by faith. Stories that will engage, challenge, entertain, and stretch the reader. These stories aren't necessarily safe...but without question, they are good.

The stories in this book--from such outstanding Chrstian writers as Jerry Jenkins, Michael Morris, Sally John, and the editor Bret Lott--are by no means safe. Like the parables of Christ, they surprise, unsettle, and even shock. They depict doubt, loss, abandonment, failure, and betrayal as well as elation and triumph. But they also deeply and meaningfully explore the human condition in relation to a God who loves us and brings us joy and hope.

Community Description
Best-selling author Lott offers another collection of contemporary short fiction with a clear Christian worldview. Includes Jerry Jenkins's "Midnight Clear"; Michael Morris's "Last Chance Son"; Sally John's "Rite of Passage"; Thomas Lynch's "Block Island"; A.H. Wald's "The Train to Ghent"; Michael Olin-Hitt's "The Laying Out"; and seven more fresh, entertaining, thought-provoking stories. 320 pages, softcover from WestBow.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book, but an unpleasant surprise  Aug 31, 2007
I enjoyed this book thoroughly when published as The Best Christian Short Stories in 2006 by WestBow Publishers. I ordered this book thinking it was a different book. Though the title is different, the book is identical to the one I already had and had read and had enjoyed throughly.
