Baehr EPIPHANY is one of those
small novels that pack a big
punch. Written by Paul
McCusker of Focus on the
Family's Adventure in Odyssey
fame, it is a brilliant
insight into human emotions
from the perspective of a
father who has just passed
away. Although one could
debate the theology of this
nether condition before the
father enters into the glory
of heaven, the book is
actually a strong call to
evangelical faith in a winsome
and subtle way. Richard Lee,
the father, has accidentally
slipped, fallen and died near
his beloved home in a small
town. Richard was not perfect,
but he had a deep faith and
gave constantly to those
around him. His children
suffer from all the problems
of ordinary people. His
daughter, Ruth, went to the
big city and got into a
lifestyle that she regrets and
is afraid to come back home to
her true love, a hometown boy.
His older son, David, has made
a lot of money and is
resentful that his father gave
so much away and didn't give
more to his own family. His
younger son, Jonathan, has
avoided his true talent as an
artist because of self-doubt.
Richard sees his children at
different points during the
preparation for and
immediately after the funeral
which occurs at Christmas
time. He gets insights into
their thoughts. In the
process, the reader gains
understanding how easy it is
to misinterpret the words and
actions of others. Thus, this
beautifully told tale
eventually helps us to
understand something important
about ourselves. EPIPHANY is
not just charming: it is a
revelation of God's presence
with us. It will make you
laugh and cry. It is highly
recommended and perhaps should
even be read aloud to your
family. Please address your

Review:

EPIPHANY is one of those small novels that pack a big punch. It is a brilliant insight into human emotions from the perspective of a father who has just passed away. Richard Lee, the father, has died near his beloved home in a small town. Richard was not perfect, but he had a deep faith and gave constantly to those around him. His children suffer from all the problems of ordinary people. His daughter, Ruth, got into a lifestyle that she regrets and is afraid to come back home to her true love, a hometown boy. His older son, David, has made a lot of money and is resentful that his father didn't give more to his own family. His younger son, Jonathan, has avoided his true talent as an artist because of self-doubt. Richard "sees" his children during the funeral at Christmas time.

Although one could debate the theology of the nether condition before the father enters into the glory of heaven, the book is actually a strong call to evangelical faith in a winsome way. EPIPHANY is not just charming: it is a revelation of God's presence with us.
