Fathers, Sons, and God

The approach of Father's Day sent me to the archives for short stories I've written on the theme. I found four about the relationships between fathers and sons. They're available as an ebook mini-anthology from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. As I was choosing the stories, I discovered they all had another common theme:

Is God our father? Are our fathers gods? These four short stories explore what happens when fathers and sons look God in the eye and ask “why?”

In “A Tale Of The Christ,” The epic movie Ben Hur weaves through a boy’s tragic summer.

Like an impressionist's painting, “Tooth Fairy Daddy” explores a boy’s feelings for the father he visits on weekends.

At the end of his hard life, Konstantinos struggles with the debts owed him by his church and his God in “The Mark On The Dove.”

“Johnnie Reader” uses books to escape reality, then discovers they can save his soul.

The collection is priced at $0.99 and includes bonus chapters from two novels, Heart Of Diamonds and Hunting Elf.

Dave Donelson distills the experiences of hundreds of entrepreneurs into practical advice for small business owners and managers in the Dynamic Manager's Guides, a series of how-to books about marketing and advertising, sales techniques, hiring, firing, and motivating personnel, financial management, and business strategy.
