Special Discount for the Olympics!

With the eyes of the world focused on Rio, some may wonder: Can we learn anything at all about God from sports?

Yes, we can! That’s exactly what The Race: An Allegory is all about! And guess what — the price of the e-book has been slashed to 99¢ — a 90% savings! — in celebration of the Olympics! At that price, you can gift a copy to all your favorite sports fans too!

Layout 1The Race, a fast-paced novel packed with compelling characters and nonstop action, follows track star Chris Strider as he runs a grueling 6,000-mile race. The length alone would discourage most people, but Chris is sure that hard work and perseverance will see him through. However, as he encounters dangerous obstacles introduced by ruthless enemies, he realizes that his very survival depends, not on himself, but on his willingness to trust Someone Else.

Now, for only 99¢, you can join The Race too — a riveting adventure that will leave you changed and challenged!

Does God Care?

Evil is running amok.

Just watching the evening news feels like some type of bizarre torture: senseless shootings … devastating explosions … death springing upon unsuspecting victims at a simple traffic stop … danger taunting those who are merely protecting peace …

It’s all so confusing. Why would a loving God permit such atrocities?

Is He incapable of shielding us from danger? Or is He just indifferent, too far above us to care about our problems? These are some of the ways philosophers, whether sophisticates or simpletons, have explained the coexistence of Good and Evil.

The Bible paints a different picture altogether; one that comes into clear, vivid focus with a little study. And what you find is the portrait of a God who is both just and merciful, both loving and  patient, both omnipotent and respectful of our free will.

A God worth knowing.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8, NKJV).

Hurray! Book 3 is out!

This final installment of the Race trilogy is an end-time novel that follows the Strider family through the challenges of the apocalypse and into the New Jerusalem. Though written as the triumphant conclusion of the Strider family’s journey, it could also be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.

I really had fun writing this book — I hope you enjoy it!

The final manuscript for Fighting the Good Fight is done (hurray!). I sent it to the publisher last week, and, if all goes according to plan, it should be released around Christmas. In this final installment of the Race trilogy, the Strider family becomes embroiled in the Final Battle. You can read a sample of it here.

I’ve just put the extras for Keeping the Faith up on the website. You may now access the Deleted Scenes, Biblical References, and Behind-the-Scenes explanations for the just-released second book. If there’s something else you’d like to see included, please let me know!

Two more additions to the Race series are in the works. I’m currently writing The Making of a Demon, which explores the question of how an intelligent, perfect being could go bad. This novella-length e-book will go back to the time of Stan’s rebellion and follow Camille as she transitions from holy to evil. Running Into the Next Generation, still in the concept stage, will be an e-book collection of short stories taken from the lost years between the second and third books.

Happy weekend to all!
