Eric Décary describes his company as a “young publishing house.” His current project is to translate At the Edge of Eternity: Walking With an Extraordinary God, a biographical account of the lives of his parents, Yves and Lise Décary. Yves Décary is a pastor, and a member of Quebec’s French Mission of The Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches. Eric’s mother, Lise, passed from this world in February of 2013. As you might imagine, this makes translating this work into English a project especially dear to Eric’s heart.
At the Edge of Eternity: Walking With an Extraordinary God, is an account of Eric’s parents’ walk with God. The book was written by Yves and Lise, and tells how God walked by their side and was part of their lives. The book is an inspirational work, telling how and man and woman devoted their lives to God, and their efforts to inspire others. Lise puts her whole heart into helping Yves as he studies and works for the ministry – in spite of her fragile health, and having to go for dialysis treatments three times a week.
So this book is a beginning for a very young publishing house. But it is also a memoir, a treasure for a son who honors his parents – and no doubt, misses his mother. Eric has a brother and a sister; all of them are adults. But no one is untouched by the passing of his or her mother. Therefore, it is also a memoir – a remembrance – and a chance to allow this special work to be an inspiration people who do not speak French, as well as for those who do.
The money collected from the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign will be used to help defray the costs of translating this inspirational work, and the costs of getting it printed in paper as well as having it formatted as a ebook.
Rewards for this exceptional crowdfunding campaign are, as you might well imagine, copies of the book. At the lower levels of contribution, these are ebooks that are written in French. As you go up levels, the rewards include a signed bookmark, a signed paperback copy of the book, and – at the highest levels of contribution – a signed copy of the book in English. Should you feel generous enough to contribute more than $1000, you will also receive posters, and your name under the Gold section on the English collaborator page.
This is your chance, as a Kickstarter supporter, to boost a young man into a chosen career and, at the same time, to help him to honor his parents. In addition, you will be placing in the hands of eager readers an inspiring account of a couple who strove to walk with God as they raised their children, did their work and coped with all the challenges that life brings. In a world where far too many of the stories told are sad, violent or angry, here is a chance for us all to share some Good News.
