Jeffrey Brown reveals "his most personal work to date," A MATTER OF LIFE!
At the same time that Jeffrey's DARTH VADER parenting books are blowing the lid off bestseller lists, he's also pushed himself to tackle the big questions in this stunning meditation on fatherhood and faith -- and in full color! NPR says it "will sit next to Craig Thompson's Blankets as one of the most touching and wise graphic memoirs we have about growing up in a religious household."
