Novella's hero shows how the faith of one can change lives of many.

William E. Coleman's The Last Call Home (paperback, 978-1-60477-405-4) is a masterful work of fiction that speaks to our dreams, our hope in the future, and our lives as we experience them.

It was a simple business trip to another town and a new opportunity for Grant Shelly, a naïve thirty-something technical genius with a real knack for solving problems. He soon found himself faced with a problem demanding skills he didn't have. Everything was suddenly not what it seemed. Easy Street was stained with blood -- his -- and the clock was ticking down. He prayed to an outlawed God in an outlaw world for an answer to die for.

Says Coleman, "Life is filled with tragedy, despair, and the lost. Any story by a Christian author, real or imagined, should address those issues and those persons -- to follow our Lord's instructions to be a light in a very dark world. Whether we make headlines or someone just passes the word along must suffice; if we tell the truth, it is always newsworthy."

Coleman's life experiences have led him on an exhilarating 66-year journey thus far, and the characters in his writing reflect some of those adventures. He enjoys sharing the stories that are inside his mind and desires the result to be both entertaining as well as thought-provoking, pointing the way to Christ.

"I want the reader to be intrigued as well as challenged by the story," he explains. "Once the reader acquires the message, then I have done my job." Readers should take heed of this powerful storyteller because he has many tales to tell, and this is but his first.

William E. Coleman married in 1964, raised two children with his wife Jeanne, and worked in high-tech industries. After his wife's passing, God sent him Tammra. They live in the roots of his boyhood, Ohio, where they share the joy of 27 grandchildren.

Xulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world's largest Christian publisher, with more than 4,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order The Last Call Home through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
