A New Book From Bookpuddle

Dear Friends -- Have you ever thought about writing your book for about ten years and then finally succeeded in doing it? A couple of months ago I did just that. It is a very exhilarating feeling. I finally got my book out there into the world at large and I'm so excited to share it with you.

The Third Question: A Novel About Everything is hot off the press and available for purchase at amazon. The following is the synopsis that appears on the back cover:

When Chris Vallee, a theology student needing extra cash, applies for a part-time typing job, he has no idea what he’s in for. Then again, does anyone who encounters Wallace “Dub” Marlden for the first time?

Chris’s new boss is a retired minister turned “heretic, pagan, heathen, and Druid” (as his wife Bessie is quick to inform us). Because he is also blind, he hires Chris to document his unique theories about “Ultimate Reality.” Early on, it becomes evident that this will not be the equivalent of a fifth Gospel.

Dub poses three simple questions – but his focus on potential responses to the third question launches him on a multi-session, smoke-filled demolition derby – a virtual ransacking of conventional ideas about God and religion. The problem is, too much of it seems to make sense! Chris soon discovers that the old man’s speculations are not easy to dismiss. He struggles to reconcile how his faith can fit into the grid of Dub’s overwhelming reliance on the theory of evolution and the concept of a universe ungoverned by the divine.

And unbeknownst to Dub, Chris is also doing some writing on his own behind the scenes.  

How will Chris, a believer in God and the Bible, react to being exposed to such flagrant heresy?

How will you react, as the reader of their collaborative effort?


The only way to find out is to begin at page one and dig in.

You will find that no matter how one answers the third question, there are profound ramifications to consider.  

“What do you say then? Are we ready to begin?”
