The Secret Life of a Fool
Worthy Publishing, March 2012
He spent his growing-up years living for himself-recklessly rebelling against his evangelist father's faith, numb to God and to the letters his father wrote him, immersed in the dark side of life. Until one intense night in the Jamaican Blue Mountains that allowed him to see himself in the mirror of grace, changing everything. The Secret Life of a Fool is Andrew Palau's unforgettable journey of running from God-and the crushing, freeing experience of coming back to Him. It is a story of getting high, burning up cars, being stranded in Europe, surviving a near-fatal plane crash, and utter despair overcome by simple grace and a father's love, expressed in excerpted letters throughout this book.
The Fourth Fisherman
WaterBrook Press, March 2012
Two stories, in different parts of the world, which ultimately intersect. Both are about being adrift--one literally adrift on the Pacific, the other spiritually adrift in the empty world of Hollywood. The true story of tres pescadores (three fishermen) who were rescued near Australia after drifting 5,500 miles across the Pacific for nine months in an eight-meter boat. One of the few items that remained after the terrible storm that disabled their boat was a Bible. They survived on "raw fish, rainwater, and their faith in God." At the same time Joe Kissack, noted Hollywood TV and film producer, found his own life adrift as his extraordinary career crumbled in wreckage around him. Reaching out from his own spiritual lostness, Joe sought to connect with the three fisherman following their amazing ordeal. The Fourth Fisherman is the inspirational true account of these two remarkable stories of physical and spiritual salvation and how they ultimately came together through faith in God.
The Frontier Boys DVD
Destiny Image, March 2012
The Frontier Boys is the story of four high school boys whose undefeated basketball season and friendship are threatened after a drive-by shooting leaves one of them in a coma, and one of them with a secret. Brent Fencett, Jed Bracken, and T.J. Lewis are star players on the Charlevoix High School Basketball team; Jackson Carlson is their most obnoxious fan. They are unbeaten on the court and inseparable off it, until Brent gets caught up in his older brother s mixed up life. The consequences of Brent's choice leave T.J. in the hospital, and Brent s soul in turmoil. As Jed and Jackson shed light into the mystery behind the drive-by shooting that has put T.J. in a coma, a conflicted Brent seeks to bury the truth in the shadows. Jed begins receiving e-mails from a comatose T.J. which leaves him bewildered, but Jed's faith in God fuels his hope for a miracle. T.J.'s father is forced to decide whether to hold onto the sliver of hope that his son will pull through or donate his son's organs to save another life. Jed and Jackson must choose a course of action between standing by in despair or chasing down doubtful leads. Brent has to choose between loyalty to his brother or joining his friends' quest for the truth. With performances by Big Kenny (formerly of Big & Rich), Grammy Award winner Rebecca St. James, former Olympic boxer Earthquake Kelley and a cast of young talent, The Frontier Boys is classic storytelling that still breaks through in the midst of a post-modern world.
