“From start to finish, my publishing experience with Outskirts was exceptional. Without hesitation, my next book will have Outskirts Press printed on the cover.”
Daniel H. Kiser received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biblical Education from Lee University, Cleveland TN. He did graduate studies at Luther Rice Seminary, Lithonia, GA. Daniel is the author of a book dealing with the second coming of Christ – Will The Bride Of Christ Go Through The Great Tribulation? Presently he is completing a third book titled, The Right Road Home, which explores the prodigal son’s return to his father. The author spent 25 years serving as pastor in Florida and Alaska. He and wife, Starla, have been married forty-six years. They reside in Tennessee and have three children, six grandchildren, and five great grandchildren.
It would be wonderful if every Christian could maintain the newness and wholesomeness of his or her salvation experience. But the unfortunate reality is Christians do sin. There may be a number of Josephs and Daniels within the ranks of Christendom who succeed in retaining a sterling character from start to finish. Human experience, however, reveals that the greater part of God’s family consists of people like David, Samson, Jonah, Jacob, and Simon Peter; people who, for one reason or another, lose the enthusiasm, spiritual strength, and sensitivity that once characterized their lives. Spiritual battles, temptations, disappointments, and failures take their toll. Harmful indiscretions cause painful bruising to the soul. Prodigal sons and daughters abound. But in spite of self-inflicted wounds there is good news; there is great news. God’s love and compassion abound even more. His desire is not to discard damaged lives. God’s intention is to restore wayward sons and daughters to their proper place in His family. The Father’s plan is to make them “better than new.” This book explores the process by which the “better than new” condition can be realized.
