The ponderings of a local school teacher turned into a promise to his nephew. That promise has now turned into a book.
New author Jake Wiens will launch his first title, this coming week. It is titled Life's Ultimate Questions: Exploring The Stories That Shape Our Everyday.
It was a response to the intellectual challenges his nephew was raising while stepping outside the Christian faith he had been raised in. Wiens said problem-solving was built into his nature, so addressing his loved one's loss of faith was almost automatic.
The mechanics of writing a book are at once specific and complex. It takes a lot of work. The wish to write a book can come on a whim, but actually accomplishing the feat requires dedication, commitment and toil.
