The Book Worm's Corner.     Comments From Helpful Books. 

Tales From My Back Porch. Darrell Case, Leaning Tree Christian Publishers, P.O. Box 6124 Terre Haute, IN 47802. 10 Chapters, 165 pages. $9.95.

Darrell has hit a grand slam with this book. Ten stories that will keep you turning pages with one hand and a hanky in the other. I did not want to lay it down.

Chapter One, The Best Day, brought back many memories of Larry and I’s honeymoon trip. This chapter should be required reading for any couple who that is facing a cooling off in their marriage. Each chapter is a page turner.

​The third chapter, Reverend Dillard’s Dilemma, is a moving tale that could be the biography of any preacher in a small church, especially if he had experienced great success in a former pastorate. Larry said, “Darrell needs to put this chapter into a pamphlet for every pastor of a small church to read.” I agree, this chapter is one of the most inspiring stories of coping that I have read.

​Jeff Dillard learned that God loved him, despite the lack of unction on display at Wayside Baptist. That God loves us despite appearance is a lesson worth learning at the heart level. Tales From My Back Porch is on sale this month! GET IT. JDL.

Editor's Note: Joyce is not over stating the power in this book. It's the best from the experienced pen Darrell uses to let the gift of God given to him spring forth blessings for all who will read Tales From My Back Porch

Hands of the Father. Darrell Case,Leaning Tree Christian Publishers. 37chp 222 pgs. $12.95 Amazon, etc.
            This book is so dark I had serious trouble just reviewing it. The opening chapter has a child, ten years old in the kitchen of the tumbledown shack where he lives. He is going on about life, when the author reveals his step mother is chained by the ankle and cannot get away. The is one of the more uplifting scenes in the dark novel. A dark novel to be sure, but one with the light of the world triumphing over the dark mess Globe has come to call, normal.
            Darrell tells us on the back cover:
“Globe is ten years old, his mother is dead: his father is a serial killer. Globe is an unwilling accomplice to murder.
            Taylor Jackson is a moonshiner, a father and a serial killer. In a jealous rage, he murders his wife in front of their eight-year-old son, Globe. He then replaces her with another and then another. None of them meet his standards. To Globe they are only temporary mothers. He can visit their graves in the pasture, but he dares not love them. His father kills everything Globe loves. Taylor is arrested and escapes. He vows he will kill the only witness to his crimes, his son! Globe realizes the only way to stop his father is to kill him. Taylor lures his son into a trap. It appears that Globe will be the next victim or will he put an end to his father’s murderous spree?”
            Reviewers say, “Awesome,” “Wonderful,” “riveting,” etc. All statements about Hands of the Father are really understated!
            Each page of Hands delves deeper into the depravity of the fallen human heart; of the devastating impact such a heart has on a child. Revulsion is an inadequate word to describe my feelings toward the villain, Taylor Jackson. Yet, God has His ways. I was amazed at how deftly Darrell Case brought Christ into the sordid setting in this best book yet by this prison worker of many years.
            Get this book. Joyce Lilly TgB.
