New Release - Dead Dog like Me - Max Davis

Dear Readers,

I am truly amazed at the different titles that are given to books.  Dead Dogs like Me by Max Davis is probably one of the odder ones I have seen.  It does usually make me wonder what is the book about to make that the title.  With this one, it is going to take a bit more research that just reading the book of the book.

Pastor Nick Gregory's life is falling apart.  His wife is getting a divorce, his church no longer trusts him and his faith is on life support and fading fast.  Can things get any worse?  Well yes, Nick suffers a horrific car accident, but the biggest shock is that once wakes up he knows he is not only not in his hometown, he is not is in his century.  Nick is transported back to 800 B.C. and into the life of Mephibosheth, King Saul's nephew.

As you can tell by that description, this is not really your typical fiction book.  It has an interesting mix of contemporary and Biblical, but set in a time not written about much.  King Saul is not really high on most Biblical fiction writers list to write about.  Well unless he is the bad guy to David's good guy.  So a very different undertaking by Max.

If you are looking for something a bit different, this might just be the book you are looking for.

Happy Reading,
