A Fire in the West brings the Christian fantasy Stonegate Series to a classic finish. This dystopian view of the US about a hundred years into the future shows what might happen after the collapse of civilization in North America. To readers of … Continue reading →
The vision is to provide resources for Christian authors and readers, focusing on God’s call, the production of anointed materials, and vetted book reviews. You can see an example of that to the left [email David and he’ll send you a digital copy].
Technical support and mentoring for Christian self-publishers are found in our companion site: The Skilled Workman. There you will also find Book Publishing With InDesign CC, the book on the best method to self-publish on a professional level.
Christian authors and readers are both essential to our effort!
Our twin focus is first to encourage authors to participate in the final harvest as we prepare for the Coming of our King. It’s a glorious time to be alive and the Lord is looking for authors to help Him save all possible before the Wrath which is to come falls on the Earth.
Second, we also need and serve readers, both to help us stay on track, and to share these resources with their friends and acquaintances. As authors and creators, we must stay attached to the Head, Jesus, as well as the readers we serve. For having a call from God necessarily means we serve those we are given. Our readers are our flock with whom we are called to minister. Jesus told us we will be held to account for everything we say [or write]. We take that seriously.
Readers are needed for feedback, reviews, and sharing. The only marketing which really works is the recommendation of a trusted friend. Only our readers can provide this info to their friends. We want to help our readers understand the important part they play in this work.

As a major part of this vision for both Christian authors and readers, I believe that the Kingdom needs more authors willing to lay it all on the line and create books containing the reality of the Christian life. We need readers searching for books of this quality and sharing them. We need books which go beyond mentions of church and vague faith statements. We really need books which share the reality of the power available to believers to bring love, joy, and healing to a world desperately needing hope. The darkness we see in the world today is but the birth pangs of the coming Kingdom on Earth. That’s our glorious hope. God, the Father of us all, is coming to live with us forever in an earth designed for us to share. Alleluia!
So, welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride!

As we finally (after three and a half years) begin to set up our home in New York, I find myself praying more and more about what God is calling me to do way out here near the East coast. What … Continue reading →
It’s strange to be in a new area new state new city after working and praying since January 2015 to get here. Rochester’s full of old-growth trees of all kinds—absolutely gorgeous trees. We’re within a mile of Lake Ontario, which … Continue reading →
The Christian life builds on paradox. Many of the deepest truths result from actions or experiences which seem strange, at best. Take the phrase our suffering brings comfort as an example. This seems like foolishness, masochism, or much worse. It surely … Continue reading →
We really all have one purpose: Becoming one with our Messiah —communion. Everyone has all these things to do. But everything remains busywork except for that one thing we can’t do. Only Jesus can bring us into communion. All we do … Continue reading →
Today, I want to talk about this reality: Born of God just imagine — really. How many of us spend most of our lives merely thankful to Jesus for saving us? We pray to Him, talk with Him, and watch Him … Continue reading →
I found an enjoyable relaxing read as Elvensty gives excellent Christian fiction — yay! Though I missed the redemptive and Spirit-filled aspects of the faith, the reality of Christian living shows through this seductive fantasy. I’m not talking about sex but the empathetic, … Continue reading →
After the wedding yesterday, I was struck by Bishop Curry’s sermon, like many were. But my take was a bit different, as you might expect by now. I was reading in I Corinthians this morning and was struck by the … Continue reading →
I don’t like writing reviews like this. I joined a Goodreads Christian book review group. This is the book I was assigned. But, Nod by Brannon Hollingsworth makes me sad. It’s a well-written, exciting, and entertaining little tale. If it were a … Continue reading →
