SCARED - A must read!!

Tom Davis' new book "Scared" will hit book stores in a few days! I have the book in my hands now and have stolen a few quick moments this evening to read a few pages. It's going to be one of those books that is hard to put down!

The story takes place in Africa, with the kinds of atrocities and injustice faced by orphans and the poor every day. A photojournalist, scarred by the atrocities he has witnessed through the lens of his camera, encounters an orphan that changes his life. Amid the dust, hunger, disease, and fear ... a transformation, a redemption.

Tom explains, "I wrote Scared so people can connect with significant issues in our world in a different way, through story. A story based on truth that motivates the reader to get involved in the issues the book discusses. I hope you catch the spirit of that as you read ..."

You can pre-order the book today online (, or or request your local bookstore to order copies now. Proceeds from the book will support orphan care through Children's Hopechest, and a writing contest in Swaziland, sponsored by Hopechest, will pay for an orphan to attend university in Swaziland.

When you are online ordering the book, you may also want to order Fields of the Fatherless, and Red Letters: Living a Faith that Bleeds. Two very worthwhile reads also penned by Tom Davis.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the book - send me a comment once you have read it! Be prepared to be moved by this book!
