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. 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 listener. These stories aren't necessarily safe...but without question, they are good.

    " Some fictional, short stories about faith, and hope. Easy to read...some of them end as if they just stopped talking and you don't know what happens, but is still worth the read. "

    " A collection of short stories whose characters all encounter God in different ways. I enjoyed this as a lighter read. "
