Description

"Riveting ... I found myself traveling with the characters." - Robert Bailey, Australia "A lovely read about a place I've been dying to go." - Francis Takis BURDEN STONE, Grand Prize Winner of the 2017 International Faith in Film Screenwriting Competition, tells the inspiring and humorous story of a fired and disillusioned Christian radio couple who set off to walk a 500-mile pilgrimage across Spain. Chris and Emilee Danielson have just lost their jobs as morning hosts, apparently for the crime of being on the wrong side of forty, and no other stations are returning calls. After a chance encounter with a Marine-turned-Catholic priest, they decide to walk the world-famous Camino de Santiago, hoping to find fresh purpose-and maybe some answers-for their lives. But the trail through historic Spain holds more surprises than they imagined. Beginning with the grueling crossing of the Pyrenees, they experience a series of challenges, both physical and spiritual, that leave them more bewildered than ever.... until in the shadow of the Cathedral de Santiago-the pilgrimage's destination, where the bones of Saint James are said to be buried-answers are found where least expected. "I don't remember ever reading a book of 170 pages in one sitting! Once I started, I couldn't stop. I have already invited my son to come with me on the Camino." - Rev. David Gooday, Anglican Cathedral of All Saints, Swaziland "We all encounter rough patches on our journey through life but only after we hitchhike along with Chris and Emilee on their challenging and eventful trip do we fully understand the potential blessings waiting for us along the way. BURDEN STONE is a special and inspiring story, a hike well worth experiencing." - Don Keith, author of Firing Point (adapted for the major motion picture Hunter Killer starring Gerard Butler)

Author Biography

Once a devout atheist, William Ray became a Christian through a personal experience with Jesus Christ. After serving as a pastor for 25 years, mostly in the Phoenix area, William retired (early) to pursue writing projects, serve in a jail ministry, and oversee his sermon illustration service for pastors, illustrationsforsermons.com. In addition to Burden Stone, William is the author of Answered Prayer: The Jesus Plan, the light-hearted reference book The 100 Most Entertaining Predictions about the 21st Century, and the practical reference book Bible Sidekick: Study Helps for Believers New and Old. William holds the Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and an English degree from Grand Canyon University. William and his wife Lynette have been married for 34 years and have two lovely daughters and two absolutely beautiful granddaughters. Contact information: billray@joyinthedesert.com Chris Danielson is an author, film maker, and conference speaker. He has spent over 30 years in radio, including the last 15 years alongside his wife in "The Chris and Emilee Show." In addition to Burden Stone, Chris is the author of Bible Sidekick: Study Helps for Believers New and Old and writer and director of the engaging documentary Bible Idiots, in which he also appears. Chris' passion is creatively teaching the Scriptures, which he has done as a pastor, a missionary, and a stand-up comic. Chris also loves sports (for which he has served as an on-air host); but if not enjoying football, hockey, or NASCAR, you'll find him with his granddaughters Riley and Quinn (and probably giving them whatever they want).
