About the Book

Hometown Favorite

by Bill Barton and Henry O. Arnold

Talented, handsome, and per sonable, Dewayne Jobe rose from humble beginnings in rural Mississippi to play college football in Southern California and beyond. One of the best wide receivers in college ball, Dewayne is assured a promising career in professional football and easily finds success both on and off the field. Not only is he a great player, he’s got the wife, the kids, and the pristine white picket fence to boot.

But catastrophe looms right around the corner and ultimately strikes with a crushing vengeance. Will Dewayne’s faith and character stand the test of such tragedy? Or will he lose everything --- including the love of his life? This modern retelling of the story of Job will capture readers with the age-old question of why bad things happen to good people --- and how good people can survive.
