About this title


When they were teenagers, the four sons and a daughter of Lloyd and Margaret Thompson presented their father with an illuminated manuscript listing "Lloyd's Commandments" as they remembered them from constant repetition - sometimes with special emphasis, as one of the sons says at the presentation. The commandments symbolize the hedge of protection that Lloyd and Margaret had grown around these bright, tough kids with the "lick-the-world expression they couldn't seem to help having." Then the youngest brother, the smartest and toughest of them, is coming home late for dinner when he accepts a ride from one of his father's employees, that ends in a fiery crash and the driver's death. The disaster and its consequences are not fully played out until Lloyd's funeral more than thirty years later.

About the Author:

Everett Wilson has been a minister of the Evangelical Covenant Church since graduation from North Park Theological Seminary in 1962. He is now in his forty-sixth year of continuous pastoral ministry. His conservative estimate is that he has written and delivered about 1800 sermons. During his first decade of ministry he also wrote short stories for Sunday School papers of seven different denominations. His first book, The Touch of God, was published by Covenant Press in 1975. Real Things is his fourth book and first novel. Of the book he says, "I have written the kind of novel I like to read." His articles have also appeared in The Covenant Companion, Christianity Today, Leadership, and The Church Musician, among other magazines. In 1985 he had the privilege of serving as moderator of the centennial annual meeting of his denomination, and from 1991 to 1993 served as president of the Covenant Ministerium, the organization to which all ordained and licensed ministers of the Evangelical Covenant Church belong. He and his wife Donna are the parents of seven adults, and the grandparents of nine children between the ages of five and eighteen.
