In this visit to Don Everts's head, you'll meet The Fingerless Lady. She's rather attractive, very popular and always smiling, giving everybody the thumbs-up. She loves to tell her inspiring story of climbing a mountain, a beautiful mountain that might look different from different sides but is still all the same mountain. But despite her warm affirmations and sugary voice, she's also a little creepy, with stubs where her fingers used to be. . . .
The Fingerless Lady has many friends, of course, like Conflict Is Always Bed and All Religions Are The Same. But other ideas like Existentialism and Tragedy have some sharp questions for her. Can her philosophy withstand the scrutiny?
About the Author
Don Everts is Minister of Outreach at Bonhomme Presbyterian Church in Chesterfield, Missouri, where he spends time cultivating relationships with people who are generally skeptical Christians with a passion for evangelism and global justice. He previously served as an area director for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in Boulder, Colorado.
Most of Don's books are inspired by students. Jesus with Dirty Feet came from a summer of pick-up basketball with a group of Boulder locals. The Smell of Sin came from helping college men through temptations. The One Guy's Head Series came from an argument with a friend.
In college, Don majored in English and enjoyed courses in philosophy, religion and sociology. He loves books and reads broadly—from Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky to cyberpunk writer William Gibson. National Geographic and Wired are among his favorite magazines.
Don Everts's latest work for Likewise is the One Guy's Head Series.
