" The Cradled God "

Evans' latest publication. In his own words, "This book is for all those who are heavy laden and desire rest. It is for the broken-hearted and for the lost. These pages have been crafted in reverence for a cradled God who was born among us for our redemption, and these pages have been penned in gratitude for His death upon a cross. For though our fathers bled Him dry and crowned His hallowed head in thorns, He has risen from His tomb and made the nations our inheritance. If you, my brother or sister, wish to arise from your distress, read on and know that you are loved. For with God, all things are possible. With love, all dreams can come to pass."
