Just Make Me A Sammich: Absurd Observations from a Wild Mind

By Don Ake

Just Make Me A Sammich is a collection of humorous essays from a wild mind, Don Ake. He explores a wide variety of topics, finding the absurd in the simple things and hilarious perspectives on more complex topics. His warped sense of humor will repeatedly catch you off guard. Sometimes politically incorrect, sometimes a bit naughty, but always witty. It is literally laugh-out-loud funny, story after crazy story.

The Prodigal

The Prodigal 
By Brett Tipton

This story takes the Parable of the Prodigal Son and places it into the 21st century. Caleb, the younger brother, takes his inheritance and lives a riotous life. Joshua, the older brother, stays at home and studies to become a Messianic rabbi. This modern day rendition is sure to bring new insight into the classic parable.
