THE PERFECT DAD
Great Dads Aren’t Perfect…But They Aspire to Be
Congratulations, you’re hired! You have no qualifications, references, education, or experience, but you’ve definitely got the job.
No occupation in the world operates like that…except parenthood.
This is my book on parenthood years in the making. It started from a conversation with my agent Chip McGregor on writing a book on being a father. I realized I knew nothing about the job. I was completely unqualified to give advice to other parents and honestly felt overwhelmed by the prospect of raising my own kids.
This is my story of researching, learning, growing, and talking with some amazing fathers while trying to become a better one myself. If you know a dad you need to get them this book. If you are a dad, you need to read it yourself.
THE ALMOST TRUE STORY OF RYAN FISHER
Meet Ryan Fisher—a self-assured real estate agent who’s looking for an edge in the market. While watching a news special late one night, he sees evangelical Christians raising their hands in worship. It’s like they’re begging for affordable but classy starter homes. Ryan discovers the Christian business directory and places an ad complete with a Jesus fish. His business doubles in a week.
But after visiting an actual church, Ryan realizes that with his business savvy, he could not only plant a church—he could create an empire. The Almost True Story of Ryan Fisher is a hilarious, spot-on, and often heartbreaking satire in the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Perrotta, and Douglas Adams.
THE END IS NOW
One week from tomorrow, at precisely 6:11 in the morning, the rapture or apocalypse or Armageddon or whatever else it is you’d prefer to call it, is going to occur. But only in Goodland, Kansas. Stuck in the middle is the Henderson family: Jeff, a struggling salesman who lives with a nagging fear that something will happen to his family; Will, who’s just trying to figure out life in the fifth grade; Emily, whose greatest concern is that she won’t be nominated homecoming queen; and his Amy, who is growing stir-crazy from being a housewife for eighteen years—and is convinced this was God’s plan B for her life. The Hendersons are longtime residents of Goodland, Kansas, a small Midwest town where nothing new or exciting ever happens … until now. Are the recent happenings and catastrophic weather mere coincidence, or more? The town spirals into chaos and confusion as its residents discover the end is no longer near—the end is now. Rob Stennett’s second novel is both a satire and a story of the apocalypse, a thriller and an exploration of family, community, belief, unbelief, and the two thousand-year-old Christian tradition of looking to the sky because the end is near.
