My hope is that all ages will enjoy this storyline. It follows true stories found in the gospels with new life breathed into them with imagined back stories.

Author Michael Coulson makes 1st century characters relatable in Dirty: The Provocative Truth of Love and Grace ($13.49, paperback, 9781632218957; $6.99, e-book, 9781632218964).

Coulson has retold the stories of well-known Bible characters to allow us to imagine them as people we could know. He takes a fisherman, a tax-collector and an adulterous woman and fills in the details to bring them (and their life-changing encounters with Jesus) to life.

“My hope is that all ages will enjoy this storyline. It follows true stories found in the gospels with new life breathed into them with imagined back stories,” said Coulson.

Michael Coulson is a loving husband to his beautiful wife, Kristine, a guiding father of five, and a doting grandfather of two. He has flavored his life with unique perspectives—born on the west coast, raised on the east, Michael now finds himself firmly planted on the island of Oahu, living life as a general contractor. Michael—a proud follower of Jesus—has lived his life by the words written in red.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Media Group, is the world’s largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 15,000 titles published to date. Dirty is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
