Why I Wrote This Book ...

Kirk Lewis“My faith remains one of the most influential forces in my life. … I chose to retell some of my favorite Old Testament children’s stories through an adult lens, sharing what I imagine to be the conflicting thoughts and emotions these characters must have experienced as they most certainly struggled to reconcile the voice of God in their hearts with the voice of human reason echoing in their minds. In that struggle, they were not that different from us.”

--Kirk Lewis, superintendent in Pasadena, Texas, and AASA member since 2005, on writing Put Away Childish Things (Xulon Press, 2013)
