Dear Friends, this is David Telbat with more about my “Christian Short Story Collection Released.” When you showed interest in the COIL novels several years ago, the “brand” of COIL seemed to evolve into much more than I ever anticipated. More than I’d hoped, God has used this fictionalized Special Forces and spy organization to inspire us all to look a little closer at the persecution our brothers and sisters in Christ endure daily around the world. COIL has encouraged some of us to be more courageous for Christ, and others have even increased their prayers for the persecuted. I praise God for that!
A Collection in Memory of God’s Work
We’ve recently released a second collection of COIL-related short stories to memorialize the years God has worked through this ministry. I’ve added a new never-before-published short story as well, the prologue, for those who have followed the COIL adventure from the beginning.
We know these stories are not JUST fiction, as the newest prologue story expresses. These stories give a glimpse of what true soldiers of Jesus Christ look like. The stories are shadows of men and women, followers and disciples of Jesus, who take a look at their options in life, and choose the best option of all: the life of a servant at the feet of Christ. These are our stories.
Peace through Tribulation
This post is being published just after the release of COIL Recruits for Christ, a Christian Short Story Collection, Book 2. The eBook includes the whole heart of the COIL journey. I am drawn to one Bible verse that should motivate us all to overcome the world and live victoriously for Jesus, just as the protagonists do within the stories.
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NASB)
We can’t end this post on finer words than that promise from Jesus Himself. Check out my newest short story collection of courageous characters. I pray you are also overcoming with courage for Christ!
See you on the next page!
