Dear Friends, self-sacrifice seems to be the prevailing theme in my new upcoming Resolution Series. It wasn’t something I intended when I started writing Res Book One, but now as I’ve just finished reading through and editing each book, self-sacrifice comes up over and over again in this post-apocalyptic series. Does this theme of selflessness mean something to us as Christians?
The Original Plan for The Resolution Series
Originally, I wrote this four-book series—set one year after the collapse of America—to show one-eyed Wes Trimble’s part in the COIL family, after the Meridia Virus has wiped out millions across the country. He was a subtle but strong character throughout The COIL Series and The COIL Legacy Series, but subtle or not, he was resolute, which means determined or firm.
Wes Trimble showed himself as being committed to taking down dark hearts, and eventually he joined the COIL team permanently to help protect persecuted Christians. He seemed to me to be the perfect hero to develop through this new series, as his resolute zeal against sin could be shown more clearly as resolute faith in Christ, and living for Him.
