What People are Saying About Our Titles
THE MISUNDERSTOOD GOD
"A good book is a good read. A great book forces you to actually put it down, go away and digest what you just read because of how it messed with your heart or head. This is a great book!"
-Drew Marshall, Host of the Drew Marshall Show
"The Misunderstood God provides a refreshing and quite freeing perspective as to the true identity of Christ and the love He has for His people, as Hufford expounds on 1 Cor. 13. This is a wonderful book for anyone ready to rediscover Christ."
-Heidi L. Ippolito, Christian Retailing
"Could you possibly believe that God is love as he defines it? Ya, probably not, but what a thrilling life you could lead if you did. This book will help push you down that path in that direction of freedom. If you like your life of guilt and pressure from an angry God, don't read this book." Read More

Many of us have been confused by God's true nature. Darin has taken the mess that religion has made and exposed a clear, beautiful revelation that God is love itself.
This book is ultimately about moving from control to trust, from protection to vulnerability, and from blame to forgiveness. All of this happens in the context of relationships. It left me in a great place of self-reflection and led me to have some significant conversations with others around me. Bo's Café has whetted my appetite for more. Read More

Bruce McNicol, Bill Thrall, and John L Lynch have put together a wonderful work of fiction that will give any reader of Bo's Cafe a new understanding of God's grace. As the world struggles with a failing economy and government out of control, God's grace needs to be shared more and more each day.

The Shack woke millions of people up to the fact that God really loves them. Bo’s Café creates the setting for how we can/should/must live together in that love.
I truly enjoyed this ride. You will too. Trust me. Real life. Real people. Rugged honest. Wrenching reality... Ride with these guys. There should be a warning label on the jacket of this book: Read with Sunglasses On. You'll need them to peer into the timeless truths this story reveals in a new, creative, relevant light.

Bo's Cafe will leave you saying "Wow" after you finish the final page. It's a book that should be passed around and talked about just as much as The Shack has been. No doubt about it....this is a book that everyone needs to read. It's just that good.
Bo's Cafe is a signpost directing men and women to a place of freedom through community and honest relationship. It is the story of what happens when we lay our defenses down and embrace the fullness of grace in the face of our secrets and pain.
--Dan Haseltine, Lead Singer, Jars of Clay
Interesting, believable characters and their multi-faceted relationships added to my enjoyment of this book. I recommend Bo's Cafe.
What a ride! Here is grace that transforms the darkest place of the human heart and makes real freedom possible.

BO'S CAFE AUDIO BOOK
Roger Mueller's textured characterizations of Steven Kerner and Andy Monroe are riveting in this spiritual novel, which is reminiscent of THE SHACK. Steven is faced with the pressures of his high-powered executive position and his disintegrating home life. Mueller delivers a compelling portrayal of Steven's feelings of worthlessness and explosions of rage toward his wife. Then he meets Andy Monroe, a mysterious aging hippie who claims to know his father, as well as personal things about Steven that his wife doesn't even know. As the story reveals the human need for honesty and a willingness to be vulnerable in relationships, Mueller depicts Steven's search for “a safe place," where he will be accepted without judgment. This is a story that lingers and changes the listeners who let it.

HE LOVES ME!: LEARNING TO LIVE IN THE FATHER'S AFFECTION
"Be prepared to know God better and love him more. You hold in your hands a classic..."
- From the Foreward by Gayle D. Erwin Author, Jesus Style
Understanding God’s love requires not a classroom lecture but a long bath.
In He Loves Me, Wayne Jacobsen fills the tub and invites us to soak in real life,
the inner life of the Trinity. “What Really Happened on the Cross?” is worth reading
five or six times, then sinking quietly and deeply into its life-giving water.
- Dr. Larry Crabb, Author of The Papa Prayer, SoulTalk, and Shattered Dreams.
SO YOU DON'T WANT TO GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE
Terrific story, I am recommending it to our pioneer church planters around the world.
- Brian, International Missions Organization
To anyone who is wondering if God still moves among us as He did in the Bible, here is a story to show the truth... that without a doubt, He does! This story spoke to something deep inside me, something so integral to my being that i couldn't sit back or relax until I reached the end. And even then I knew it was just the beginning.
- Jillene, Camp Director, New York
- I left my church after 12 years and felt I needed to be in a church until I read your book and discovered it was not about going to church but being the church. And that is to be done everywhere I go and in everything I do. I am now fellowshipping in a small house group and feel at home. This book will definitely inspire you to be the church and not just go to church.

MY BEAUTIFUL ONE
This is probably one of the finest instrumental CD's I have ever enjoyed!This music will capture you, restore your soul and draw you near into the very heart of God.Seldom do songs transcend the realm of words and touch your spirit, but I believe these do.What The Shack did with words, Chris DuPré does with music. That's why we are proud to release"My Beautiful One" as our debut album for Windblown Records. A definite 'must listen to' -- Enjoy!
- Brad Cummings, Windblown Media
When the imagination of a writer and the passion of a theologian cross-fertilize the result is a novel on the order of The Shack. This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress did for his. It’s that good!
- Eugene Peterson, Professor Emeritus Of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.
An exceptional piece of writing that ushers you directly into the heart and nature of God in the midst of agonizing human suffering. This amazing story will challenge you to consider the person and the plan of God in more expansive terms than you may have ever dreamed.
- David Gregory, author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger
