I am the author of several books:

Writing the Christian Nonfiction Book: Concept to Contract

Concept2Contract2Sonfire Media, 2011 ISBN: 978-0982577332 

There are three rules for writing a book,” a famous author once said. “Unfortunately, no one knows what they are!” It’s true — to some extent, the process of writing a book is shrouded in mystery, and is probably the main reason why so many potential authors are simply treading water. Writing the Christian Nonfiction Book: Concept to Contract helps take the confusion out of the process. Dave merges practical advice with spiritual counsel, so that his approach emphasizes the inspirational impact of the author’s material.

Father to Nobody's Children: The Life of Thomas Barnardo

Father to Nobody's Children - hi res cover

CLC Publications, 1995 ISBN: 978-0-875086620 

“Where did you sleep last night?”

“In a hay wagon, down at the market. Please, sir, let me stay by the fire all night — I won’t do no harm.”

A horrible thought sprang to Thomas Barnardo’s mind: Is it possible that there are other children in the city of London like this one — cold, hungry, homeless? What should he, a young medical student, do to help them?

This encounter became the springboard to a lifelong ministry in the East End of London, rescuing thousands of the needy for Christ. Though he lived a hundred years ago, Dr. Thomas Barnardo is a name still warmly remembered throughout England — and his life is an inspiration for Christians today.

The Higher Christian Life

(By W.E. Boardman; edited for today by David Fessenden)

CLC Publications, 2007 ISBN: 978-0-87508-894-5 

First published in 1858, this classic study on sanctification sparked a revival in England and America, and was a foundation for the Keswick movement. This new edition, edited for today’s reader, assures us that the Christian life need not be a continuing cycle of trying and failing, but that Christ’s power is available for those who take Him by faith as their sanctification as well as their salvation.

Don't be fooled!  Amazon uses the cover of this edition of The Higher Christian Life to sell a cheap, “photocopied” reprint of the 1858 edition, which it refers to as the “alternate paperback edition.” Not edited for today's reader, it contains the original archaic language.
