In 'Fatherless, Dobson portrays bleak future for families
Posted by Staff
The Huffington Post:

Christian conservative leader James Dobson, the founder of the Focus on the Family ministry, has gained a new title: novelist.

Working with co-author Kurt Bruner, a Texas pastor, he's out with "Fatherless," the first of a dystopian trilogy that looks into the future when the elderly outnumber the young, advancing the culture wars to new dimensions.

Dobson, 76, answered emailed questions from Religion News Service about his new project.

Some answers have been edited for length and clarity.

Q: Why did you venture into fiction after writing about real-life parenting for so long?

A: This is my first novel, but not my first foray into fiction. I have always believed in the power of narratives to influence thought and shape the spiritual imagination. While with Focus on the Family I challenged the team to create a radio drama series called "Adventures in Odyssey." My co-author, Kurt Bruner, led that team for several years. We couldn't be more excited about the potential of this new trilogy to embody themes on which I have been writing, speaking and broadcasting for decades.
