One of America's foremost writers collects the best stories submitted to NPR's popular monthly show--and illuminates the powerful role storytelling plays in all our lives When Paul Auster and NPR's Weekend All Things Considered introduced The National Story Project, the response was overwhelming. Not only was the monthly show a critical success, but the volume of submissions was astounding. Letters, emails, faxes poured in on a daily basis- more than 4,000 of them by the time the project celebrated its first birthday. Everyone, it seemed, had a story to tell. I Thought My Father Was God gathers 180 of these personal, true-life accounts in a single, powerful volume. They come from people of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. Half of the contributors are men; half are women. They live in cities, suburbs, and rural areas, and they come from 42 different states. Most of the stories are short, vivid bits of narrative, combining the ordinary and the extraordinary, and most describe a single incident in the writer's life. Some are funny, like the story of how a Ku Klux Klan member's beloved dog rushed out into the street during the annual KKK parade and unmasked his owner as the whole town looked on. Some are mysterious, like the story of a woman who watched a white chicken walk purposefully down a street in Portland, Oregon, hop up some porch steps, knock on the door-and calmly enter the house. Many involve the closing of a loop, like the one about the woman who lost her mother's ashes in a burglary and recovered them five years later from the mortuary of a local church. Hilarious blunders, wrenching coincidences, brushes with death, miraculous encounters, improbable ironies, premonitions, sorrows, pains, dreams-this singular collection encompasses an extraordinary range of settings, time periods, and subjects. A testament to the important role storytelling plays in all our lives, I Thought My Father Was God offers a rare glimpse into the American soul.

The only thing that denying or ignoring the truth does is to delay the inevitable. It will eventually come out. "The end result is worth the hurt and struggle it takes to face the truth." Writing this book took courage — and the power of God. Corina Anna had to confront the lies of shame, dysfunction and fear of "rocking the boat" to bring forth the truth of her painful childhood. Corina Anna's honesty will bring liberation to those who have been scarred by the shame of their pasts, particularly victims of sexual and physical abuse. First and foremost, this book is a testament to the power of God's great love and protection for all those who trust in Him. Corina Anna's message of hope will encourage you whether you've been a believer for many years or you're still wondering if you can trust God with your life. Her candidness in sharing how she has learned to interact with God in her everyday circumstances will inspire you to experience God's kindness and direction in your own life.

From his early childhood, author Floyd Funk was a dreamer and a romantic, wanting the most excitement and fulfillment he could get out of life. In My God/My Father, he shares forty years of his life story. His memoir recounts his pastoral and bittersweet small-town, Midwestern upbringing— culminating in the shocking revelation of his parental abduction at the age of eleven. From that point his life is irrevocably altered and we follow him on his trial-and-error road of re-unification, both with his family and with his own identity. Funk shares how his saving grace was his faith in God, the one who helped him conquer his demons and break through the chains that held him down for years. This is Floyd’s testament to the unyielding presence of God through many years of broken relationships, false starts, and painful self-realization.

Life never seemed so good. Well, at least that’s how you’ll feel after completing Confessions of a Bipolar Firefighter. Strap in. From the mountainous highs to the bottomless lows, this adventurous autobiography travels through the mind and experiences of a tremendously controversial, besieged, introspective and tormented man named James L. Nutt. It begins through the eyes of a child who endures extreme physical, sexual and emotional abuse and then transitions into his impoverished and naturally destructive teenager years accented by his proclivity for violence. After a tumultuous young adulthood, he grows into a working class firefighter who daringly climbs the ranks to chief. Normalcy appears to be attained as James and his newfound family gain a strong relationship with God. But the ebbs quickly return as James discovers his church pastor has embezzled thousands of dollars from offerings, and his wife passes from skin cancer leaving him to raise four children on his own. All the while, he continues to wage battles against his own bipolar disorder along with the vices of alcohol, drug abuse, sex and violence. Everything culminates to a fight with his own demons as a God-fearing man with an agenda to avenge those who have betrayed him. His mental illness exacerbates and his relationship with the Lord wavers as he struggles with completing his own vengeance versus allowing God to take the lead. Whether you believe him to be crazy or sane, right or wrong, you will certainly remain on the edge of your seat as you take a ride with this truly original character who provides insight into his real-life tale for the ages.

This book is about hope. It is also about surrendering to God's will and acceptance of His plan for us. The main focus is the revelation I had following the death of my father, when I realized how closely interwoven were the love of my earthly father and my Heavenly Father. It touches on living our lives in accordance with God's plan even when the death of a parent seems to have pulled the rug from beneath your feet. In reading this book, you learn to recognize God's love for you in your family members before they are lost to you. Although this work is focused mainly on my relationship with my father, it could be applied to any relationship in one's life. This is a story of being brought out of despair wrapped in the arms of The Blessed Mother, and ultimately, into the Love of God My Father. This book examines the feelings of abandonment that I felt after the death of my father, as well as my anger at God for taking my dad from me too soon. It deals with discovering God's will for your life, surrendering to it and accepting it. The topic of Kenosis, the emptying yourself of self so God can fill you with Himself is explored. This book uses Franciscan references and Christian principles. I try to explain how I came to discover that my earthly father had always been mirroring the love and protection of My Heavenly Father. Admittedly, we in our human nature, take things for granted. Sometimes it is helpful to hear someone else's story. Sometimes we can recognize ourselves easier through others. I'm hoping and praying that my collection of thoughts might be helpful to someone experiencing the same sense of loss and devastation as I did. I also hope that it will give those who read it hope that although the feeling of loss never goes away, it does become more bearable as time goes by. The key is surrender to and acceptance of God's will. He promises to never leave you, even until the end of time. SUSAN WALSH was born in Paterson, New Jersey. She and her husband Chris have been married for eight years and live in Northeastern Pennsylvania. They are members of St. Patrick's Church in Milford, Pennsylvania in the Diocese of Scranton. Born into Catholicism, she attended Catholic Schools from kindergarten at Our Lady Queen of Peace through DePaul Diocesan High School.

Susan presently works as a chairside dental assistant. She has a background in restaurant ownership and has worked as a court stenographer. The death of her father caused enormous repercussions in her life. After going through all the grieving processes, the idea of this book came to mind. It has been a very cathartic and healing experience.

If radical postmodernism offers nothing more than arbitrary fictions and modernism is coldly but meaninglessly objective, where is reality? Apologizing for God argues that reality rests in the lives we live in history. In other words, it argues that living as understood on the basis of the incarnational nature of Christianity is an appropriate response to our current cultural situation. Partly philosophical, partly theological, and deeply Christian, Apologizing for God explores the importance of living in the presence of God as revealed in the autobiographies of our lives. Although not autobiographical in the strict sense, this book is an apologetic for the truth of Christianity explained through one Christian philosopher's understanding of our relationship to history in which God is revealed.

Born in a poor fishing village under difficult circumstances, Masako, a descendant of the Satsuma Samurai Clan, grew up burdened with many, filial responsibilities, in a rigorously class-conscious and patriarchal society-one headed for massive and profound change. Unable to reconcile herself to the many roles within roles imposed upon her, and feeling in her heart that she was destined to make a difference, Masako embarked on a lifelong journey of growth and self-discovery that took her across the Pacific Ocean and eventually led her to God. In their sixties-when most Americans are hoping to retire and enjoy the fruits of their labors-Masako and her husband Carl spent three years as the first Lay Missionaries for the Society of St. Columban in Japan. Those years, while life changing, were also painful and left Masako scarred and in a state of spiritual and emotional crisis. Questioning her role, her identity, and her very worth, Masako returned to the United States to rebuild a life, and reconnect with the Church community. I Thought The Sun Was God is a powerful story of faith's eventual triumph over deprivation, denial, and rejection. It relates the author's struggle with adversity and injustice, culminating with her eventual surrender to the true higher power. It is about the struggle versus adversity and injustice, but it is also about surrender to one true higher power and finding one's voice while listening for the small, still voice of God.
