“Lederman’s powerful debut interlaces three stories that span nearly a century and are tied together by a church of outcasts in Las Vegas…Readers of inspirational fiction will love this moving story that affirms the power of God’s mercy.”
Seven Lives Inexorably Intertwined. Over Eighty-Six Years.
That Will Bring a Revelation Beyond What Any of Them Could Imagine.
The Alaska Territory, 1925. When Yura Noongwook’s husband abandons her and her thirteen-year-old son, she vows to win him back and destroy the woman who stole his heart. They embark on an epic cross-country quest that leads them to the Nevada desert, where they meet a man who has turned into the last thing anyone expected him to become …
David Gold. Reno, 1930. A Bible-school dropout known as the Pummelin’ Preacher. His boxing career is fading, just like his faith. But then a former call girl shows up, tells him about the rag-tag congregation she’s part of; how their pastor was murdered. And that the Spirit is moving and David’s destiny is to lead their tiny flock.
Las Vegas, 2011. Cable TV star Tim Faber is an atheist bent on proving God is only alive in people’s imaginations. But Joan Reed, his producer, is trying to recapture the faith of her youth. And both of them are driven to unravel a mystery surrounding the Big Bang theory, never dreaming the answer will forever change their lives.
To do that, they have to meet with the now 99-year-old Luke Noongwook and David Gold’s grandson, Daniel.
The veil is being pulled back, but none of them are prepared for what they’ll find on the other side.
“…uplifting and compelling…a powerful and inspiring novel.”
—Foreword Clarion Reviews
“Bold and forthright writing that would set any heart on fire.”
–Christian blogger Miranda A. Uyeh
What if time could talk, to let us know
When we stop, that is when we go
Would you count the days and ponder sore
Or sing God’s praise and know there’s more
The Number of Days explores eternity through the life of a young boy who has a gift with numbers. Christopher sees numbers as people, each digit having gender and personality. Following the tragic death of a young girl who he adores, he questions God’s fairness. With the help of an unlikely hero, he begins to understand that humans were made for eternity.
I love this book and can’t say enough about how rich it is. Growing up in a small town during the 60’s it brought back so many memories and feelings that I hadn’t thought of in years. Though it’s written through the eyes of a young boy, it’s not necessarily a children’s book. It’s deeper than that but still easy enough for a young person; so much like the gospel that way. You’re not going to want to put it down and you’re going to want more. You’ll read through it way too fast but try to go slowly and absorb it. The ending just blew me away!
