The shameless purpose of these tales of Sumarkand is to urge you to get involved and to help build the Road. Hearken! The Voice may be calling you to pray or to lend some other help to make a Way for His people in Sumarkand.
Please read carefully. Not everyone who claims to be building the Road is building straight or gathering out all the stones. The lovely people of Sumarkand deserve only the tried and true, only the original. If you know what true Christianity is, then this book is for you.
You may find the people of Sumarkand to be quite charming, but they have stories that will disturb you. Their stories may not fit your view of the world and how it should work, but please do not put them out of your mind, because these stories are all too true for those who are living them out.
