Amity Street

Flames literally erupt and people die as the paths of a puritanical preacher, a disgraced professor, a besotted has-been ball player, a barroom chanteuse, and a lovable junkman cross on Amity Street. Love, murder and arson mix with alcohol and ultimately result in a generous contribution to the community. Excellent for group discussion on love, brotherhood, morality, judgement, guilt and forgiveness. Also included are a short story,Legion, and selected poems.


Robert Sikkenga's most recent novel, Ruth Redeemed!, published by is an exceptional portrayal of the Biblical Ruth. He introduces her as a talented and ambitious young shepherdess with passions and flaws who eventually becomes the great grandmother of Israel's most famous king. All of the characters are drawn as real people with needs, virtues and blemishes.

Prior to Ruth Redeemed! he published Moon Over Ajalon, a book that weaves Bible study and meditation into a tapestry that invites the reader to return to Eden, to taste the milk and honey of the spiritual promised land, and return to paradise. The book is acclaimed by both clergy and laity.

Sikkenga and his wife, Mary Ann enjoy retirement in Middlebury, Indiana.
