Clear Winter Nights
by Trevin Wax (Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group)
Like a parable or an allegory, this seemingly simple narrative addresses weightier issues of faith and forgiveness. Clear Winter Nights tells the story of Chris Walker, a young college graduate wrestling with questions about life, love and the Lord. While searching for answers, Chris spends a weekend with his grandfather, a retired preacher, and the two engage in a series of conversations that challenge and convict the young man. Ultimately, Chris must choose between settling for a cheap religion or a real relationship with the Lord.
How this brings more to life: This stirring tale is a deep and powerful exploration of what being Christian has meant and still means today.
