Revealing light in the darkness
John 1: 5
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
"Reaching the world for Christ, one reader at a time."
Not only do I write Christian thrillers and family history, but I post monthly in my blog, my conservative Christian worldview related to current events and things going on in my life, family, faith, and career. As always, I'd be honored if you follow along.
In the book of Mark, the fifth chapter, Jesus expelled many demons from a man in the region of the Gadarenes. When Christ exorcised the demons, the man wanted to follow Jesus, but Jesus told him to go throughout his home cities and tell people his story. This story will follow the man named Lucius, from the time when he became cursed by demons, to his encounter with Jesus Christ, to his spontaneous ministry throughout the ten cities of the Decapolis. Get to know Lucius, his friends Levi and Darian, and perhaps even get to know the One they call Jesus, from a unique perspective. See how Jesus not only sets Lucius free, but helps three men realize who their true Master really is. Perhaps, readers can also connect the dots to other people in the Bible along the way.
