Double Feature: Flannery O’Connor and the Astronaut


On September 18th Andrew Osenga releases his long-awaited concept album, Leonard the Lonely Astronaut. On the same day Jonathan Rogers will release his spiritual biography of Flannery O’Connor, The Terrible Speed of Mercy. What happens when these two worlds collide? Everything that rises does indeed converge.

Pre-order Leonard the Lonely Astronaut and get a 3-song acoustic sampler. All pre-orders of The Terrible Speed of Mercy will be signed by the singer—I mean the author.

    LOL!!! Loved it! I’ve been wanting to write a very serious and sappy comment declaring that Flannery O’Connor and the summer reading club changed my life, but you guys have just killed it! Oh, the terrible, crushing, beautiful and holy speed of mercy! Looking forward to reading the biography. And Leonard is already a favorite. Especially like Ever and Always and Firstborn Son.

    Words fail me… I am overwhelmed by–by–by something anyway! I think two stars just collided 🙂 .

    Only at the Rabbit Room does dorkiness pass for coolness. Which is why I like it. Rock on, dude! And…er…read on, Leonard.

    Love the vid. Definitely a great laugh. But on a serious note, quite excited to read this book and Osenga’s album is a favorite this year. Both are worth your time and money!

    Wow. I have a terrible need of mercy after watching that. I laughed my lonely astronaut off. <—-What?
