East Georgia State College assistant professor of English Dr. Armond Boudreaux recently published his new book, That He May Raise, on July 20, 2015. The book is available on Amazon.com and from The Livingston Press, Indie Bound and Barnes & Noble. There is also a contest currently running on Goodreads.com to win an autographed copy of the book.
That He May Raise is a collection of inter-connected stories that explore the ways in which guilt radiates through time and space, and asks whether the resulting suffering can be redemptive.
“The title of the collection comes from John Donne’s poem, Hymn to God, My God, in My Sickness,” Dr. Boudreaux explains. “It ends with the line ‘Therefore that he may raise, the Lord throws down.’ I suppose that’s the thing I’m grappling with in these stories.”
Dr. Boudreaux majored in English and earned his Ph.D. at the University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Writers. He has published articles and reviews in various venues, and this is his first work of fiction. He and his wife, Leah, have four children.
