Poppa John by Larry Woiwode( Book )

13 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He has been Poppa John for so long that he can barely find his way back to reality. (If he ever knew it.) As Poppa John, the Bible-spouting soap opera character known and loved by millions of TV watchers, the actor hid behind his grandfather's memory and the soft platitudes of the psychiatrist's couch. As himself, Ned Daley, he runs face-on into memories of his father's violent death and intimations of his own aging and spiritiual poverty. Within the bounds of one dreamlike day in New York City, and he and his wife, Celia, shop for Christmas gifts with the last of their savings, he finds his carefully-built actors' masks crumbling away. The Scriptures that Poppa John quoted so lavishly combine with the guilt embedded in his past to break him down; until he turns to confront the grace offered him--the grace that would shed light on his life and reveal for once and for all the true identity of Poppa John

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mette Iversdatter's window was a porthole on the winter sky." Larry Woiwode brings us into the simple and anxious rhythms of life for a Norwegian farm girl in the first decade of the twentieth century. Christmas Eve falls in the midst of deprivation as Mette's family prepares to journey to her grandparent's farm. When her father fails to bag a big deer on the journey, they arrive, like everyone else, almost empty-handed. Yet despite frustration and disappointment, this extended family combines their meager resources to create an unexpected marvel that transforms the family's Christmas. Sharply observed and crisply written, Woiwode's story throbs with truths known to human hearts in any century. He carefully renders the hesitant hopes of a child, the aching disappointments and steady perseverance of her elders, and the surprise of beauty and joy. That prayers may yet be answered--that the provision may be greater even than the promise--is a truth for Christmas and always
