"Reading The House of DunRaven, I had an experience not unlike I had when I first read the Narnia series. I found myself thinking, 'Wouldn't it be cool to be in this story?' And then I realized that, in some ways, I already was. Like Lewis, Lympus weaves a wholly original tale that beautifully intersects with biblical themes and storylines."
--Eric O. Jacobsen, Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church of Tacoma; Author of Sidewalks in the Kingdom: New Urbanism and the Christian Faith and The Space Between: A Christian Engagement with the Built Environment
"I loved the stories nested within the story of this debut novel. Reminiscent of The Giver with its monochromatic setting and the gradual unfolding of hidden knowledge and suppressed stories, The House of DunRaven made me wonder with a shudder, 'What would the world be like if we lost the old tales?' Thankfully, there's no danger of that with writers like Steve Lympus keeping them alive."
--K.C. Ireton, Author of Circle of Seasons and Cracking Up
"Steven Lympus has a gift for creating delicious anticipation for what will happen next. I loved his winsome characters and creative plot."
--Lynne M. Baab, Author of Sabbath Keeping and The Power of Listening
"Sometimes a book of fiction reveals the truth more than a set of facts. Benjamin Story, the primary character in the novel, is adopted. When his mother dies and his father disappears, a story develops that is certain to expand your understanding of the world of adoption. Prepare to be both inspired and entertained."
--Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.
"Steve has written a book that reads one way for adults, another for children. And both are good reads. This is a story about the significance of story. Steve Lympus is using story to help us think about how we read our own stories. This grand adventure will woo and win children; it will move and inspire adults. That is no small feat. I can't wait to read it to my grandchildren."
--Jerry Sittser, Professor of Theology and author of "A Grace Disguised" and "A Grace Revealed"
