The Easter Bunny Discovers Chesterton

IMG_0533

I had a chance to spend some time enjoying the outdoors with my good friend, EB. It was a good opportunity to talk about what’s ahead.

me: So EB, Easter Sunday has come and gone. Do you take it easy between now and next Easter?

EB: Are you kidding? A rabbit’s work is never done! I’ve got a ton of things to do, for starters I’ve got bunny appearance events throughout the year. There’s the fan mail that has piled up and of course keeping my eye on you and helping you with the book. And, I’ve decided to read the Bible this year.

me: Wow, so you’re finally going to read it? Maybe this is a sign of the apocalypse. I never thought you’d actually read it.

EB: Well, I found out that the Bible is really a collection of books, not just one book. It’s a library of sorts.

me: And what led you to this sudden curiosity about the books of the Bible?

EB: I’ve been reading GK Chesterton. The guy was either a complete loon or one of the most brilliant people on earth at the time he was alive. Here are a few of his quotes that I really like.

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love
our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.

A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.

The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried.

The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.

I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.

me: You’re turning into quite the sophisticated rabbit. Next, you’ll be eating caviar.

EB: You can keep the caviar, I’ll keep my peeps.

Great Read! – Welcome to Lent 2013

Rabbits Tale Book Cover

“A Rabbits Tale An Easter Story” is officially released today, on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BEIQYPC Pick up your copy today and read it during Lent. Let me know what you think. I would really love to hear from you.

While the book is entertaining, it dives into issues that we all face about our mortality, our faith, God’s plan, and the choices we make. The struggle between good and evil is at the center of this story, along with the true meaning and significance of Easter. (and it’s not a rabbit with candy eggs, EB will hate me for saying that).

The story takes place in present day. It is suspenseful and moves pretty quickly. I think you will enjoy it. As we begin the season of Lent today, my wish for you is that you are renewed and strengthened by your personal journey these 40 days.

Peace and all good,
Diogenes
(EB’s best pal)

A Rabbit’s Tale an Easter Story – Great Read for Lent

EB2  RabbitsTaleCover

Well, he finally did it. He published that crazy book, A Rabbit’s Tale an Easter Story. It is now available for Kindle at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BEIQYPC . The paper back will be available later this month.

This is a really good book to read during Lent. It’s fun and suspensful and is appropriate for all age levels. There are some laughs. The story begins as we meet Juan Arias as a kid. He has a bit of a rough time with a classmate. Later in life, things start to unravel as Juan has a bizzare accident with some funky side effects. As he is trying to get his life together, he finds himself in the middle of a struggle between good and evil as he tries to help a friend bring an evil, cunning, ego maniac to justice. It’s quite a page turner, as Juan comes to discover what Easter is really all about.

Pick up a copy on Amazon and tell your friends, family and your church. I think it’s a really good story and lends itself well to discussion, as we go through Lent and anticipate the Easter celebration.  I was a little dissapointed that Easter candy is not the main focus of the book, but this bunny gives it an enthusiastic thumbs up!
