And for the anticipation factor, here’s a preview of what’s ahead in the next 18+ months. (These are working titles at this point so they may change, and so might the order lineup.)

Chloe and Luigi return for this Middle Eastern sandstorm of terrorism, kidnapping, and smuggling. Even if Corban survives, he may never be the same!

ANOTHER REMNANT – A modern-day adaptation of the Book of Acts. Saul is on the rampage, operating out of Washington, D.C., as the government’s most lethal Christian hunter. Stephen and other disciples run for their lives, but the priority of the gospel draws them to face death for the sake of the Cross. This lengthy novel is not scheduled yet, but it is being prepared for the not-too-distant future.
The order of these titles may change, my friends, but the action for the people of Christ will not diminish! And we may slip in another book here and there as well! Thanks for reading!
We praise the Lord as we ponder, “The WORD became flesh and dwelt among us.” See you on the next page!
