Weston and Emma, two very modern siblings, accept an invitation to visit the neighborhood oddball and find themselves on an adventure they’re pretty sure nobody will believe. What starts out as a strange but harmless adventure, however, soon turns into something sinister and dangerous. Yet they have the powerful fruits that their curious host provided, and—armed with faith, courage, and humor—they will discover the surprising truth that has been hidden in plain sight. Perfect for middle readers, home school, and family read aloud time!

THE IDIOT AND HIS ODYSSEY
During a frigid North Dakota winter back in 1979, a young man encountered a powerful being from another dimension. The experience radically altered his perception of reality and, according to some, transformed him into a stark raving lunatic. He often thought that himself. But there was no denying that something had happened to him—something so profound, so crazy, so otherworldly that he was clearly no longer himself —or, as he insisted, no longer just himself.
This is his story.

WHERE THE GOD LIVES
In this new collection of poems, Allen explores the borders between the human and the divine, the intersections where a redeemed but finite humanity experiences the astonishing reality of the infinite God. Using precise, melodic language, and often a refreshingly grounded sense of humor, Allen helps refine our spiritual sensibilities, enlarging our capacity to perceive and inhabit not only our own world but also the wondrous region of God’s presence.

THE SOUL’S WILD LAND
With careful attention to craft, Allen takes up the ongoing prophetic task: to articulate an immanent transcendence that he himself cannot fully comprehend. This collection reflects the diverse inner weather of a soul afire, whose clear-eyed vision is matched—and sometimes overcome—by a relentless spiritual hunger. In the tradition of George Herbert, these poems map a vigorous, deeply-felt religious landscape where the ineffable speaks in a voice both glorious and inscrutable.
