Greetings Reading Soldiers for Christ! David here with “Korean Crisis and Christian Response.” I’m thrilled with the feedback so far for my novel, Sea Scribe! (Thanks to J.D. Sparks, Ralph Corum, and Phyllis Olley for your reviews!)
You’re right—it’s not a COIL novel, but Corban Dowler can’t be everywhere. 😉 Besides, we may have a new hero in Troy Forge!
When you listen to news about North Korea, you may imagine two massive military forces facing off: a nation starving for food in the north, a nation of westernized glamour in the south, with missiles ready to fire on both sides. And all of this may be the absolute truth.
But Sea Scribe is not a novel about the current world crisis. Not directly anyway. Rather, I have intentionally not dwelt on the military face-off to show instead the just-as-real conflict of persecuted Christians enduring in North Korea. I give a glimpse into the underground church and into the terrors of a containment camp.
And then there’s Troy Forge—the Christian, sailor, adventurer, survivor, widower. I think his focus on North Korea should be our focus: where are the people that need help, and how can we help them?
We may make note and pray about world conflicts and aggressive chaos, but as Christians, our eyes must be Christ-centered. The gospel is the one and only answer to world peace, and Christ Jesus alone is worthy to reign! Like protagonist Troy Forge, let’s be His ambassadors!
See you on the next page!
