ASL novel on DVD

George Joslin has created an ASL-only novel called A Deaf Man's Gospel . The Springfield, Missouri author decided to create a DVD rather than print especially for the Deaf community. Joslin tells the story of a deaf man, healed by Jesus. The pastor of a church for the Deaf in Louisville, who is deaf himself, narrated the story while a pastor of a Virginia Baptist Deaf church in Richmond provided the voiceover. Joslin has two other novels under his belt: A Life After Deafness and A Terp on the Line, and numerous non-fiction books on teaching American Sign Language and interpreting for the Deaf.
