What People are saying about this

Trent Sheppard
"Jesus told stories, lots of stories. Stories that made people laugh, stories that made people angry, stories that helped people see God with a bit more clarity. The Parable of the Unexpected Guest is just such a story. It's both wise and witty, a compelling combo for sure. Read it with your heart wide open."
Trent Sheppard, author of God on Campus
Andrew Marin
"The Parable of the Unexpected Guest is a profound booklet that quickly, and without even noticing, takes you into a place of deep wonderment, challenging you with the question, how would I act, react and interact with the Creator of the universe who decided to show up at my front door and inhabit my life?"
Andrew Marin, author, Love Is an Orientation, president, The Marin Foundation (www.themarinfoundation.org)
Margot Starbuck
"The Parable of the Unexpected Guest is for each one of us who thinks we've got our lives together and for those of us who are very clear that we don't. Its message about being human, which is deeply true, invites readers into life that really is life. Read it, live it, share it with others."
Margot Starbuck, author of The Girl in the Orange Dress and Unsqueezed
