In this visit to Don Everts's head, you'll meet The Fingerless Lady. She's rather attractive, very popular and always smiling, giving everybody the thumbs-up. She loves to tell her inspiring story of climbing a mountain, a beautiful mountain that might look different from different sides but is still all the same mountain. But despite her warm affirmations and sugary voice, she's also a little creepy, with stubs where her fingers used to be. . . .

The Fingerless Lady has many friends, of course, like Conflict Is Always Horrible and All Religions Are The Same. But other ideas like Existentialism and Tragedy have some sharp questions for her. Can her philosophy withstand the scrutiny?

Don Everts

Don Everts is reluctant to call himself an evangelist, but for decades he has found himself talking about Jesus with all sorts of skeptical and curious people. He is a writer for Lutheran Hour Ministries and teaching pastor at Bonhomme Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, Missouri. He has also been a speaker and trainer for Alpha and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. His many books include Jesus with Dirty Feet, I Once Was Lost, The Reluctant Witness, and The Spiritually Vibrant Home.

He and his wife, Wendy, live in a neighborhood founded over two hundred years ago that now has two public schools, four churches, one mosque, one Hindu temple, and both a Costco and a Walmart.
