Baggins, the famous little Hobbit said: “I
am looking for someone to share in an adventure
that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to
to my website! And thank you for joining in
the adventure I’ve arranged!
I’ve revamped my
website to make it a platform focused on what
I believe you want to see, which is the books,
the reviews and comments on the books, how to
get a copy and what I’m up to.

Tesema has a driving passion to build churches
for the next generation of Ethiopians, immigrant
children like his own two sons, who look ethnically
Ethiopian on the outside but inside, they are
collaborating with Tesfai to tell the story
of the doctoral research which led him to become
a modern Mordecai, working with North American
Ethiopian congregations to identify and empower
the Esthers in their congregations. The forthcoming
book (tentative title: For Such a Time: Gen
Two Ethiopians and the Gospel) features a research
survey of twenty-five Ethiopian Americans and
in-depth interviews with three Ethiopian second-generation
pastors. It’s a must-read for immigrant
parents and Christian leaders who wonder what
to do with their children, who love hamburgers
and French Fries more than injera bread and
to read an excerpt from the spring edition of
the journal, Lutheran Mission Matters.

wins the story-telling contest? What happened to Major
Eli? In Ken Yoder Reed's forthcoming novel, Pastor
Vladdy leads his 15th tour of the Holy Land with his
radio show fan club. He tag-teams with Major Eli,
Israeli counter-terrorist and pistol-packing Orthodox
Jew. They challenge the tourists to tell the best
story and win the big prize. Then everything falls
apart on the final day. Eli takes offense over Vladdy’s
‘What about the Palestinians?’ and leaves
on a deadly secret mission. Click here

to read a Who’s Who of the characters
on the tour and see a gallery of pictures. This
is not another travelogue, another analysis
of ‘the Conflict’, another history.
It’s the stories of the pilgrims themselves,
as they told them to me. Journalistic fiction—
their true stories of pilgrimage, disguised
to protect privacy.
