Author Philip Bauer presents "The Heavenly Oak"

A Man carrying the weight of an innocent death, at the culmination of a life unfulfilled, must face his own truth. The Preacher who lost sight of the love of the Father when he allowed greed to corrupt his soul must find a path to redemption. A Civil War Soldier mired in prejudice and entitlement has to face his crimes against his fellow man if he hopes to achieve peace and rest. The Superstar struggles beyond abuse and poverty and finds success, only to realize that his golden life is built on the backs of those he trod upon on his way to fame and he must atone.

All must find their answers beneath THE HEAVENLY OAK.



More About Philip Bauer and The Heavenly Oak

A 2018 Reader's Favorite Finalist in Christian Fiction, The Heavenly Oak by Philip Bauer, the star of The Legend of Johnny Cash has garnered 5-star reviews and more importantly changed people's lives:

"As a lifetime Christian, I have often wondered what transpires once we cross over from the physical realm. This book, the stories of these relatable flawed humans, brought tears to my eyes while bringing me closer to my own need of forgiveness. A wonderful weaving of biblical text in believable scenarios. I was hungry. The Heavenly Oak fed me and comforted me."  …Mary Minton

"Magnificent ! We all have to account for the choices we’ve made in this life with faith, without faith, how we have treated people, and loved and lost at life! Could not put this book down! Brilliant!"   ...Hayley

The Heavenly Oak by Philip Bauer presents a picture of heaven that many readers will find familiar and comforting. There is something very reassuring in the way that Bauer writes about the moment of death and one's arrival at the heavenly oak. And if what comes next seems a bit too easy, the novel makes the definitive point that heaven is available and attainable, but not automatic.

Bauer will be reading from his book and signing copies at The Center for Art & Inspiration, Thursday, September 5, at 7:00 pm.  The cost is $15 and includes a copy of the book. 

Bauer began writing as a songwriter. He has written and performed his own music all his life. Several of his original songs were recorded by Philip and played on 300 radio stations all across Europe.  He continued his interest in writing as a political cartoonist. He was the staff cartoonist for the City Sentinel in Oklahoma City for many years. His cartoons have appeared on the editorial pages of USA TODAY, and the Kansas City Star newspapers.  The Heavenly Oak published in 2017 by Trifecta Publishing House is the first of a five book contract for the author.
