Books that Feature Jeff’s Writing:
“The Man We Meet Along the Way” – C.S. Lewis, a world-renown author behind titles like “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” and “Mere Christianity”, originally intended his creative writing to bash the notion of God. Scholars at the time of Lewis’ death in 1963 thought his work would be quickly forgotten, but because he wrote seemingly to echo the disciple John’s reason for writing his gospel – “that they may believe” – his work lives on. And so, in this collection, The Sycomore presents essays from a variety of writers – from doctors to journalists to memoirists – on moments when a Lewis passage intersected with their lives.

“The Cross” – What does the Roman cross mean today? Jesus’ life on this earth was the most astounding thing to ever happen, and his death on the cross was an inherently beautiful act, one worthy of our attention and reflection. This collection of short stories paints touching portraits of the cross coming to life. You can purchases paperback or e-book copies of “The Cross” on Amazon by clicking here.
