Thank you for joining us, Reading Friends. This is David Telbat wishing you a wonderful Resurrection Remembrance this season! ~ Tragedy and chaos seem to rule our world. Morality and gender issues seem irreversibly confused. Greed and violence seem to go hand in hand. Few seem to have answers for the growing unrest and hopelessness across every country.
It is my opinion that we are indeed in the Last Days—as the Bible refers to the time of upheaval leading up to Christ’s return for His Church, and His eventual revelation of Himself before He rules on earth. This is why the Telbat Team writes for you: to remind you that through all of this fallen world’s uncertainty, God’s plan from eternity past is still intact. Nations will rise and fall, but Jesus our Savior will one day reveal Himself with justice and finality!
The Focus of the Last Dawn Trilogy
If you have read the first book of my Last Dawn Trilogy Series, Dawn of Affliction, then you have found Levi Caspertein as a model of Christian responsibility in a fallen world. No, we probably won’t see America fall to a Meridia Virus situation, but there are many other viruses rotting away at our country’s foundation. Regardless of what moral decay, infanticide promotion, and gospel confusion smothers this land, true believers in Jesus Christ must remain courageous, loving, and faithful to the Bible’s truth. Our hope is based not on this world, but on Christ’s promises!
At this time, we hope to deliver to you Book Two of Last Dawn Trilogy later this year. It is titled Dawn of Oppression, and features Jenna Dowler amidst a degree of Christian persecution that we haven’t seen before across the East Coast. In Book One, Levi is traveling across the post-apocalyptic landscape of America to reach Jenna, so we’re seeing the build-up for a wonderful and fierce climax in Book Three. Only the steadfast in faith will endure!
The Focus of The Resolution Series
My new set of four novella books, The Resolution Series, follows one of COIL’s original allies who became an agent—Wes Trimble. All four books will be available by early summer 2019. We plan to release the whole series within days of each other. I’ve finished writing them, and we’re beginning the editing phase. Our first proofreader has already given me feedback on the first two books of the series, and I can’t wait to hear what you all have to say about one-eyed Wes Trimble’s adventures one year after the collapse of America!
Like the Last Dawn Series, The Resolution Series is meant to draw our attention to our responsibility to live for Christ, regardless of what is happening in the world around us. It’s important that Christians do not focus unnecessarily on the comfort we have or don’t have in this world, and instead focus on what God is working out through us and for us to live like His Son.
Are we recognizing His hand of providence? Are we taking advantage of moments to love when others only hate? Are we striving to show Christ-likeness, even when the darkness seems to smother the land?
While these two series will be shared with you this year, we will continue to offer short stories and updates to subscribers (subscribe here). Our new, simplified Author Page, which we’re gradually shifting to, will offer you more direct access to retailers amidst a new format. We’ll keep you posted on what you can expect in the near future. Ultimately, my heart’s desire is to encourage you in your own journey for Jesus Christ!
See you on the next page!
