The Road to Renewal

by Kirby Lee Davis

Overview
Reflective of yesteryear's screwball farces, "The Road to Renewal" unveils a three-day cascade of trials and tribulations that spur its divorced protagonist father to question his faith and life. The book's tone undergoes dramatic change through its 280 pages. As much tragedy as comedy, "The Road to Renewal" delivers a rare Christian tale enjoyable by nonbelievers, with engaging scenes that draw frequent laughs amidst its escalating conflict. The novel ends with a contemplative call that will move readers for years to come. "The Road to Renewal" should appeal to teen and adult audiences.
Description
"Three days. Two guys. One lives. One dies." That's the cover hook for "The Road to Renewal," a 280-page novel by Kirby Lee Davis. It marks the third work published under the Fashan Books banner by Davis, author of "God's Furry Angels" and "A Year in the Lives of God's Furry Angels". Reflective of yesteryear's screwball comedies, the tone of "The Road to Renewal" undergoes dramatic change through its 42 chapters. What starts as an amusing farce, suitable for teens through adults, soon descends into tragedy. "At least once in our lives, we face a trial by fire that threatens everything we hold dear," said Davis, who based "The Road to Renewal" on events from his past. "Some people draw strength from such sieges, while others suffer scars that never fade." "The Road to Renewal" tells how one follower of Christ, a newspaper humorist shaken by divorce, crosses paths with another believer battling his own personal demons. "They share a three-day plunge into despair, darkness, and death," said Davis, 58. "Both question their faith through hardships each is sure can get no worse, only to be proven wrong again and again." Davis hopes the questions raised in this book help his Christian drama reach and appeal to secular markets. The book pulls no punches while examining sex, divorce, prejudice, debt, crime, loneliness, suicide, and many other elements of modern life, frequently drawing laughs amidst its escalating conflict. "Its satirical wit may very well alienate some Christians, and then there's the subject matter," Davis said with a smile. "But I hope this aggressive, honest approach opens doors in our increasingly divided society, allowing doubters and cynics to reconsider what Christians themselves debate and yet hold dear. If readers may set aside preconceptions and study their lives anew, all might find something to ponder and laugh about in this book. I hope so." "The Road to Renewal's" front cover synopsis reflects Davis's passion for music. As the poem evolved, Davis turned it into the first verse of a song he's long played with. That lyric dominates the book's back cover: "Three days. Two guys. One lives. One Dies. One father who struggles to survive his divorce. One son whose troubles allow no remorse. One sinner who fails to dig his way out. One believer whose trails leave no room for doubt. Three days. Two guys. One lives. One dies." "The Road to Renewal" debuted Oct. 9, 2018, at multiple online outlets.
