Out of Print: A Novel by John W Frye


My second book is now available! To learn more about it and purchase a copy, click here. At the book website you will also be able to read the back jacket copy, an excerpt from the first few pages and a comment from Scot McKnight's Afterword. Credo House Publishers is a division of Credo Communications under the excellent leadership of Tim Beals.

This is my first attempt at fiction and I am told that it is a gripping and provocative story. You be the judge of that. I wrote the book to provoke meaningful conversation about the Bible as both a divine gift and a human creation.

On the book website is a CONTACT tab. I want to hear what you think of the story. My heart-felt thanks to Jeremy Bouma for creating the book's web site.

I thank Dr. Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor of Religious Studies at North Park University, for writing the Afterward, admitting that he is not a huge fan of fiction, but that my book "hooked" him. I appreciate Scot's comments about the novel.

My first book was Jesus the Pastor: Leading Others in the Character and Power of Christ (Zondervan: 2000).

Yes, John, congrats! I'm excited for you and seriously hope your little creation ruffles some feathers and spurs dialogue on this topic of the Bible.

Thanks for writing it!

brother maynard,

Can you believe it?! Scot even used the word "hooked." Let me know if you think it's a good story.

greg,
You are a truly encouraging brother. Pray that the main point of the story is received well...We not only have a Bible, we *are* the Bible = 2 Cor 3:3.

John,
Can't wait to get my copy and read it! I'm not much into fiction either, but this has me hooked already. Fascinating plot!

jim,
I am eager to hear what you think of the story. Thanks for your interest.

Ted,
I hope is that the story will generate some serious thought about the Bible. That is will be view as more than a "magic book."

When I asked at the local bookstore, they replied:

"Sir, we don't carrying out of print books".

After patiently explaining that it is the title, I learned I would have to order online. Saving my pennies!

Peace,
Jamie

I recommended your book to my pastor. He emailed me the other day, "I received my copy of Jesus the Pastor yesterday -- wow! What a book! There have been very few books that have been transformational for me. I'm only into two chapters -- and I think this might join the elite list!

Thanks for the lead."

Thought you'd like to know.
