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.

While put together from a Christian worldview, 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.

From Homer Hickam, the best-selling author of Rocket Boys - which later became the movie October Sky - to editor and contributing best-selling author Bret Lott, this collection spans a talented community writing an eclectic blend of fiction. These stories will take you on a journey filled with lightheartedness, profundity, hilarity, tragedy...and ultimately hope. Download and start listening now!

    " 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. "
