FOR MY PARENTS,

LINUS AND MARGARET,

WHOSE LOVE IS A WORLD OF STORIES BETWEEN THEM

AND FOR UNCLE GEORGE,

WHO WAS THERE





If our God, the one we serve, is able to save us from the burning fiery furnace and from your power, O king, he will save us; and even if he does not, then you must know, O king, that we will not serve your god or worship the statue you have erected.

DANIEL 3:17–18


What is good has been explained to you . . . to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God.

MICAH 6:8
