"A favorite in the theology of preaching, which helps us remember what we're doing and why. Reading this book is like picking up somebody else's family photo album and seeing your face staring out from every page. Buechner's gift for wringing beauty out of pain is one we appreciate more and more,"---Christian Century. 112 pages, hardcover. HarperOne.

Review 1 for Telling the Truth: The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy and Fairy Tale
Date:August 27, 2007
For the soul that wants to know the Truth, the Whole Truth, and nothing but the TRUTH, this book will tell it. Touching that place inside us all that wonders at God's silence or the surprising twist in the ending of some parables Jesus left us with, Frederick Buechner helps make clear the direction God moves or doesn't move in our lives. Undeniably, this book paints a picture of a God who really IS big enough to face the storms of our lives without prejudice or flight.
