Oren’s arrogance and position have afforded him many acquaintances and no friends. He inherited the renowned scribal school in Susa from his father – an emotionally distant scholar. 

Adam has sought Oren out. He believes that Oren has the skill to help him untangle the story from his memory. A skeptical Oren promises his pen, but not his silence.

At his home by the sea Adam tells Oren. He speaks once and for all of what happened, unpacking the great burden of guilt and regret that he carries. Oren comes to see all that he and Adam share – lost love, estranged sons, memories that must be confronted. And a Maker who knows no distance.


Much is happening as we prepare for the summer release of The Confessions of Adam. We are securing endorsements, editing the manuscript, and attending in pre-release events.
