Short stories resurrected

By Bret Lott
Share this Article:

As editor of The Best Christian Short Stories, Vol. 1, it fell to best-selling author Bret Lott to find stories that treated the biblical command to bear witness with dignity and aplomb. Lott contributed a story of his own and came up with 10 others that illustrated his point by authors such as Larry Woiwode, Erin McGraw, Homer Hickam and James Calvin Schaap. In Schaap's Exodus, a father drives from Iowa to Arizona to deliver his daughter from an unhappy marriage, and ends up learning something about himself. Hickam's Dosie of Killakeet Island finds a small island community rallying around one of their own after tragedy strikes. These are honest stories about people with challenging lives just like us. Mike Parker is a former pastor who writes from Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
