By Eleanor Gustafson


Jeth Cavanaugh is searching for a new life along one of Pennsylvania's mountain ridges when he stumbles upon a stable of show jumpers owned by Rob and Katie Chilton. Throw in a volatile gaited stallion named Dynamo, and Jeth will do anything to work there. He earns his living by training and showing Rob's jumpers, but Dynamo is his primary passion.

Everything changes when God enters his life—in the unconventional form of a hard slap by an old girlfriend—and ignites a new, greater passion within him. But along with fervor comes fear at the undeniable evidence of God's hand on his life. Inexplicable events, both good and bad, make him moan plaintively, "Why does God do this to me? I get the feeling I'm being set up for something."

He is, indeed. Jeth's life is anything but predictable, much like the God he serves. The real Dynamo and his ultimate trainer emerge out of an excruciating mix of disaster and brokenness, which are never beyond the reach of redemption.
This story is God in your face: Who is He, really? What does He ask of us?

Book Takeaway:

Through the power of story, I want readers to see an extraordinary God who sometimes works in extraordinary ways through servants who fear and worship Him. I’m trying to create a hunger in my audience for eating the full banquet God serves up, instead of nibbling just crumbs to the point of starvation.

Why the author wrote this book:

I love God; I love horses—in that order. Being in the habit of making up stories, I concocted a “rough draft,” so to speak, and later decided it had potential. The story evolved, of course, and it speaks powerfully—first of all to me—of a sovereign God who loves and cares and molds servants who will in turn love and care.
