Dr. James Dobson Releases First of Fiction Series
Dr. James Dobson, former head of Focus on the Family and author of nonfiction classics like The Strong Willed Child and Bringing Up Boys, has released the first of a fiction series for Faithwords/Hatchette. The new fiction book is called Fatherless, and it is to be followed by two others in the series, Childless, due later this year and Godless, due next year.
Barnes and Noble provides this overview of the book: “The year is 2042, and a long-predicted tipping point has arrived. For the first time in human history, the economic pyramid has flipped: The feeble old now outnumber the vigorous young, and this untenable situation is intensifying a battle between competing cultural agendas. Reporter Julia Davidson-a formerly award-winning journalist seeking to revive a flagging career-is investigating the growing crisis, unaware that her activity makes her a pawn in an ominous conspiracy.
Plagued by nightmares about her absent father, Julia finds herself drawn to the quiet strength of a man she meets at a friend’s church. As the engrossing plot of Fatherless unfolds, Julia will face choices that pit professional success against personal survival in an increasingly uncertain and dangerous world. In the dystopian tradition of books like 1984, Brave New World, and The Hunger Games, Fatherless vividly imagines a future in which present-day trends come to sinister fruition. ”
Dobson is writing the series with Kurt Bruner. He is a graduate of Talbot Seminary and former Vice President with Focus on the Family. Bruner is the best-selling author of more than a dozen books.
