The response to Sunday has been almost overwhelming. I could never have imagined this kind of response. I am about to run out of books and am hoping that the next shipment gets here soon. Thanks so much.

Would you like to order a book? You can check out the website at It has details on the book as well as Justin and the non-profit organization that Wall and others are working to establish.

From the happy sound of things, though, there’s no guarantee of Christmas delivery on the books.
