In an endeavor to find a fresh way into the scripture text upon which I would be preaching, I began to develop an imaginary world populated primarily by wee folk. I found they—the characters I developed and the way that they evolved in my mind and on the page—served me well as a consideration of how I sensed things happening in the scriptural text at hand. I want to make these stories and the world they represent newly available, and so I bring them to book form, fifty at a time.
