This book is a collection of short stories depicting spiritual struggle within the contours of sobering and sometimes fatal situations. Some stories portray less serious and humorous situations, though with redemptive themes still intertwined. The characters and situations presented do not disappoint the reader's desire for pleasurable reading, though a sense of the fleeting world mixed with spiritual confrontation or confusion may give the reader pause before moving to the next story. For readers who like realistic religious fiction with plausible characters in trying circumstances, the book provides a variety of stories in the contest of wills between living for wrong things and the confrontations inevitable with a calling in Christ. While some stories within this book have this explicit context, others provide samples of the infinite battles that confront the believer living in a secular or distorted age.
