Hayden Reese once believed he could have it all, and once, he almost did: a wife, a daughter he adored, a child on the way. But little by little, a chain of heartaches stripped him of all he loved, and a flash of violence changed his destiny. Now at middle age, newly sprung from jail in a remote California town, Hayden is utterly alone. His girlfriend has left, and he just buried his beloved dog. It seems God may never be done with Hayden Reese. And that's the “good” news.

Catherine Ryan Hyde’s stirring retelling of the Book of Job illuminates one man’s fall from grace, his powerful confrontation with the past, and his poignant return to hope and forgiveness.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The natural cadences of Hyde’s prose; her clever, realistic dialogue; her sharp descriptions of hard-scrabble country; and her warm humor raise the novel [to] a complex tale of one man’s struggle to make sense of life. Inspirational rather than preachy or sentimental, the book wields the emotional power to be expected from a story of family, dogs, justice, and self-reliance.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • Electric God is the answer to a prayer—a heroic, superbly crafted novel worth reading again and again and again.”

    Denver Post

  • “The book is a quick, enthralling read, yet provides grist for deep thought.”

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

  • “Gritty and full of surprises…openly inspirational but not cloying.”

    Baltimore Sun

  • “A modern version of Job that’s also one of the most entertaining novels of the year.”

    Christian Science Monitor

  • “A beautifully crafted story…Hyde is inspiring and uplifting without sentimentality.”
