The book presents stories from the bible narrated in a manner pertaining to today's world.In January 1999, a few days shy of his twenty-first birthday, Christopher Michael committed suicide in a haze of depression, self-loathing, and drug addiction. He left behind a loving family, which is still trying to understand what happened to this promising young man, and why.Evocative poetry, alternated with short autobiographical vignettes written from Christopher's point of view, as if in his own voice, reveal a soul in torment, a young man who knew deep within that he was loved and who loved in return, but who was unable to trust in God to do battle with the outside forces of evil which had taken over his life.Christopher's book is not his story but his message, "Choose Life!"After numerous requests for a Spanish translation we have included it in this publication.
