Big Eye: The Preacher brings to life the deep and resonant relationship of love that binds together Big Eye, God, and Little Man, author Liam Walsh, by sharing the dialogue that arises between these two figures.

The author encourages readers to think of these reflections as eggs and to make nests in their minds through contemplation of the truths these eggs contains. Big Eye: The Preacher is not a book for readers who want to sit back and let entertainment wash over them. Rather, it invites you to enter a period of intensive spiritual renewal. This promises to be a time energized by the conversation between Big Eye and Little Man and the inner dialogue that arises in you, the reader, through your encounter with both the truth of your own lifewhether you are Little Man or Little Womanand the reality of God, our Big Eye.

Scarlet Bone is a zombie girl with one big problem. It's not that she's missing a nose (zombie parts go missing all the time). It's not that she's turning 13 today and her parents just gave her a massive chore to do. It's not even the stray arm she found in the street -- the one that's giving her so much trouble.

She encounters a wolf, and reveals to him what she's doing and where she's headed. She gets distracted on her journey and arrives late to Grandma's. Too late. Grandma? Is that you? Something seems amiss. What big ears you have. What big eyes you have. What big teeth you have. Scar and the Wolf is the Little Red Riding Hood for our time — one with zombies, music, and lost body parts just trying to find their way home.
