What is redemption? And why does it seem to come so easily for some, but be impossibly elusive to others? After devastating loss, Ian Gray gives up searching for a purpose in life and merely exists from one day to the next. When he witnesses a heinous crime, it only further cements in his mind what he believes to be the truth: that there is no redemption for him. But there are those around him who refuse to give up until he understands the true meaning of redemption and forgiveness.

About the author

I have no formal degree in writing, but years of practice in writing stories for my own amusement and fun. I have written a play that was performed at a church I attended several years back, and it only instilled in me a desire to write more. God has brought me through many tribulations, some I've brought on myself and others that come from simply living. It is my dream that the Lord can use what He has shown me and brought me through to give hope to others. He inspired in me a love of writing and I pray He will use whatever talent He has given me to bless others. I currently live in a rural town in Tennessee.

Book 1
One of the most beloved and bestselling novels of spiritual adventure ever published, Ishmael has earned a passionate following among readers and critics alike. This special twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new foreword and afterword by the author, as well as an excerpt from My Ishmael.

Must have an earnest desire to save the world. Apply in person.

It was just a three-line ad in the personals section, but it launched the adventure of a lifetime.

So begins an utterly unique and captivating novel. In Ishmael, which received the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship for the best work of fiction offering positive solutions to global problems, Daniel Quinn parses humanity’s origins and its relationship with nature, in search of an answer to this challenging question: How can we save the world from ourselves?
Praise for Ishmael

“As suspenseful, inventive, and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction you are likely to read this or any other year.”—The Austin Chronicle

“Before we’re halfway through this slim book . . . we’re in [Daniel Quinn’s] grip, we want Ishmael to teach us how to save the planet from ourselves. We want to change our lives.”—The Washington Post

“Arthur Koestler, in an essay in which he wondered whether mankind would go the way of the dinosaur, formulated what he called the Dinosaur’s Prayer: ‘Lord, a little more time!’ Ishmael does its bit to answer that prayer and may just possibly have bought us all a little more time.”—Los Angeles Times
