The series The World That Was is a fictional story that is based on historical and Biblical facts. I didn’t one day just sit down and dash off a novel. It took tremendous research.
It doesn’t take a genius to see such a future. This is simply a practical outgrowth of the worldwide persecution we now see around us.
The real reason people reject the Ark and the Flood is fear; fear that they would have to acknowledge there is a God and that He holds them personally responsible for their actions. It is a fear that pushes them to the unreasonable and extreme positions they hold. The plight of the modern day evolutionists should break our hearts. It is like a man desperately holding onto the railing of the ship even as the ship slides beneath the waves.
But there is another genre that I enjoy reading. That is Christian Science Fiction. You might think that is a conundrum, but have you read the Left Behind series? Aside from being Bible based these books also involved futuristic science. In fact, Christian Science Fiction can involve history pre-written (prophecy), history, and science.
This statesman was firmly rooted in the Christian faith and played an integral role in the founding and early history of our nation.
Fortunately human science is beginning to catch up to the Bible. While it still stubbornly adheres to evolution, it has made discoveries that not only disprove or weaken their theory but also adds information to the Biblical account which we didn’t know.
…what is known of his faith?
Actually we don’t know that much in spite of his much speaking. Nonetheless, we can surmise a few facts.
This book was like a dialogue to the bible. I could feel and hear each character…they became life like or real to me in the way the author pended their various responses and reactions to their unique situations.
But nationally we need to remember that Memorial Day is not just another holiday. The greatness of this country was paid for by the blood of those who have fallen in its defense. It should cause us to reflect on the values, yes the moral values, which they died for!
An author should never be afraid of the consequences of research. Sure, you may discover things that contradict your presuppositions, but you may also learn something powerful and transforming that will take your book to the next level.
