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!

Third Book Done!



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!

Some Readers’ Reactions to The Race:

This book was amazing!!!! And it’s so true too. In my school we are doing a lot of Bible related things and this book helped me look at the assignments with a different understanding. This book is so inspiring … This was definitely one of my FAVORITE books!!!! I can’t wait for the second one to be released!!!!!! 🙂   (Mackenzie on Google Books)  

This is truly a LOVE story in all aspects. What a creative and simple way to show God’s love for me. (CGil on Barnes & Noble)

Della Loredo does a fantastic job with this modern-day allegory. Being an athlete and runner myself, I appreciated all the correlations of running a long-distance race to our relationship with God. Many visualizations have continued to come to my mind and prove to be a positive reminder of connecting with God throughout each day. (Lisa on Amazon)

I simply loved this book; I could not put it down. Thank you for the allegorical view presented in comparison to the relationship and love God longs to have with us. I have a new desire to renew my relationship with Christ and I am more determined now, by God’s grace and mercy, to finish the race. (MMosley on Amazon)

This book made me think about my Christian walk and my relationship with God in a fresh, new way. As is portrayed in the story, God loves us soooo much and desires a personal relationship with us. We all need to be reminded of this and foster it in our lives.  (Randy on Amazon)

Every so often a book comes along that makes this journey better. Equips with tools that you remember and use, challenges in a way you never would have expected and is wrapped in a story you can’t put down. This is one of those books. This story will stay with you long after the last page has been turned. (Connie on Amazon)
