The dove is a universal symbol of peace, most commonly recognized as a metaphor for the Holy Spirit. In a collection of inspirational short tales, retired minister Jim Crompton provides a glimpse into the lives of diverse characters attempting to resolve a wide variety of conflicts, internal or external, with help from God. Lenny is a happy-go-lucky boy who hates going to school. But when a man speaks to his class one day about Jesus, everything changes for him. Life has been hard for Halina, an elderly Ukrainian woman who survived Auschwitz. On Christmas morning, she becomes young once again as she rises to enthusiastically greet her final visitor. When an unfortunate event lands Steven Peters in jail, he finds reassurance in a sweet voice dragged from the depths of his memories of Sunday school. The Wings of the Dove shares short Christian tales that explore how God the Holy Spirit brings restoration and peace in both obvious and hidden ways.
