by Marcia A. VanDewark, Ph.D. The authors experiences in the environmental movement resulted in an environmental disaster story, Five Minutes to Midnight, contained in this volume. Another story follows a group of people who are resourceful and have deeply felt spiritual convictions that compel them to separate themselves from a world bent on destruction. The Fool of Heaven pits secularism, hedonism, and deified science against traditional religion and altruism. Both the Graces and Murphys Family discuss family life. The first story is tragic; the second is a humorous look at a family who reduces everything in their path to shambles.
