Night as Clear as Day—In the tradition of Flannery O’Connor and J. F. Powers, these thirty-five inspirational short stories portray unforgettable characters facing the many challenges of life and death with the clarity of faith and the constancy of courage. These are stories about life, death, and giants.

Each multifaceted tale is illustrated by one simple symbolic drawing. Together, they will echo your own experience—helping you make the long journey from a busy head to a grateful heart.
