about

Myths, Stories, Parables for the Religious at Heart collects four e-books I have at Smashwords for free: Neither Good nor Bad: How Prometheus Stole Fire for Humankind, Parable of the Promise, Parable of the Uncoordinated Pigeon, and The Other Side: A Touch of Midas and Other Writings. I will be charging for the convenience of the collection, but each of the four items can still be downloaded for free. The Other Side:A Touch of Midas and Other Writings: When I was a child, my parents purchased for the family The Book of Knowledge. The purchase included several volumes of the world's folktales. I loved those stories of kings and princess, wise animals and some mean ones, and spent many hours dwelling upon them. In this collection of writings I explore ways of finding Christ's message in the myths, legends and stories of other cultures. Neither Good nor Bad: How Prometheus Stole Fire for Humankind: In this retelling of a Greek myth, the author explores and comments on the human character and condition through the story of how the Titan Prometheus so loved the creatures he had created that he stole fire from the gods and gave it to them to further their intellectual and technological development and the development of civilization. But was there a price to pay, for Prometheus and us? Parable of the Uncoordinated Pigeon: When launched miles from home, as many of us are, King suffers with his homing instinct. Paradoxically, the harder he tries to wing his way home, the further and further away from home he finds himself. In the end, he learns where home really is. Parable of the Promise: A childless couple, the Man of the Forest and the Woman of the Forest, spend many happy years caring for God's creation but nurture one sadness in their life together. God makes them a promise: "Some day you will care not only for the trees, waterways and creatures of the forest, but also for your own children." But the years go by and the old couple remain barren
