“Orson Scott Card meets Stephen King. An imaginative debut novel that explores the first murder and makes us aware of the Cain in all of us. McPherson can write, and his beautiful language is both artistic and thought provoking.” -William Sirls, best-selling author of The Reason and The Sinners’ Garden
“With literary skill and respect to the original text, McPherson weaves a terrific ‘what if’ story on the life of Cain, all the while exploring the depths of temptation, sin, and above all, God’s unfathomable mercy.” –Bill Myers, bestselling author of Eli
“A stunning and captivating novel. Brennan McPherson's fluid prose and vivid imagination is a treat for the senses, bringing to life one of the Old Testament's most enigmatic figures.” -Billy Coffey, critically acclaimed author of When Mockingbirds Sing and The Devil Walks in Mattingly
“Thought-provoking, well written, creative, highly imaginative and all written within an honest attempt at accurately interpreting scripture while allowing for creative license within the bounds of what might be possible. A smartly-paced debut novel. I think we'll be hearing more of Brennan and his stories.” –Charles Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Unwritten and Water From My Heart

I’m a dad.

My wife and I just had our first baby, so I’m taking a few weeks off to be with them.

Given that last week’s blog was on proper time management, I figured it would be appropriate for me to take some of my own advice. And due to the fact that I haven’t yet attained the discipline necessary to write my blog posts several weeks in advance, I’m taking a break from blogging for this extremely special time.

Truth is, I just want to be with my precious little daughter and my amazing wife and not worry about anything else.

So, in the meantime, here’s some older posts you might enjoy:
