From the author of the New York Times bestseller Before the Fall, an intense, psychological novel about one doctor's suspense-filled quest to unlock the mind of a suspected political assassin: his twenty-year old son. As a rheumatologist, Dr. Paul Allen's specialty is diagnosing patients other doctors have given up on. His son, Daniel Allen has always been a good kid but, as a child of divorce, he is also something of a drifter. Which may be why, at the age of nineteen, he quietly drops out of Vassar and begins an aimless journey across the United States, shedding his former skin and eventually even changing his name. One night, Paul is home with his family when a televised news report announces that the Democratic candidate for president has been shot, and Daniel is the lead suspect. Convinced of his son’s innocence Paul begins to trace his sons steps to see where Daniel, or perhaps Paul, went wrong, beginning a harrowing journey--about the responsibilities of being a parent and the capacity for unconditional love in the face of an unthinkable situation—that keeps one guessing until the very end.

From award-winning, bestselling author Wayne Grady comes The Good Father, his first contemporary novel, which comically and tragically reckons with a father and daughter's estrangement, the failures brought on by hubris, the limits of perception and the price we pay for second chances. Every story has two sides, two perspectives. And when it comes to a relationship between a daughter and her father, separated first by divorce and then by both generational gaps and physical and emotional distance, those perspectives can colossally diverge. Such is the case with Harry Bowes and his only daughter, Daphne. Harry is a mild mannered journalist turned teacher turned wine merchant who is content to putter around his home in Toronto eating things straight out of the fridge that both his doctor and his second wife, Elinor, would disapprove of, and procrastinate calling his daughter even though he senses something is amiss. Meanwhile, in Vancouver, Daphne seems intent on a course of nihilism, having gone from being a loving girl to a top student to a hostile young woman who is determined to destroy her life and relationships by self-medicating with drugs and alcohol. When a catastrophic event wrenches them out of their states, one of stasis and one of chaos, Harry and Daphne are forced to examine the ways in which their self-absorption has eroded their connection and discover whether a family's bond is truly ironclad or if their damage is irreparable. Told in alternating perspectives, The Good Father delivers a deeply satisfying and layered novel of love, perception, family and domesticity. Propelled by regret, compassion, frustration and comfort, this novel gives us Wayne Grady at the height of his powers.

Get to know God as the generous Father who loves to give good things to his children. The great I AM, the true and living God, is a God who has the glorious habit of going about doing good to people, especially to His people. He gets glory from us by doing good to us. Many Christians do not know God like this. God doesn't want you to remain unacquainted with Him as the God whom the apostle James winsomely describes as 'the constantly giving God.' Just the opposite. He longs for you to know Him as the God who is eager to do good things for you, like helping you say 'No!' to temptation, answering your big prayers, continuously forgiving your sins, enabling you to conquer fear, and giving you wisdom in decision making, to mention but a few examples. In Good, Good Father C. L. Chase lays out three steps to knowing God as He wants to be known. Firstly, you must immediately begin making a big deal of the truth most Christians know but fail to take seriously. Secondly, you must begin emphasizing the Father's method of doing good to you. Thirdly, you must begin using His promises to experience Fatherly good now. Your Heavenly Father wants you to live abundantly. His Fatherhood magnifies His love for you. He loves you intensely, openly, responsibly, enduringly, glorifying-ly. C. L. Chase's book will help you to get to know God like this. Contents Foreword by Dr. D. Ralph Davis Introduction - An Unknown God Step 1: You must immediately begin making a big deal of the truth most Christians know but fail to take seriously 'I Coulda Been a Contenda!'
