I am working on a novel, my first, about an ex-Army Airborne Ranger named John Gosling. John spent his early years of life as a football player, then a Ranger. A physically strong man able to endure pain. After suffering a paralyzing wound on the streets of Somalia, his life spirals downward, losing his marriage. Later, John finds God and is miraculously healed of his back injury. He lives a quiet life as a church member and HVAC technician in rural Georgia after coming to know the Lord. By chance, John finds himself in a circumstance that forces a choice. Human traffickers, crooked cops, victims in need of rescue and a man with unique skills, healed, unattached and available. Are the skills that God gave him, the physical abilities that He miraculously restored meant to merely watch and pray as his part in battling the evil men or does God want something more from him? An approach that is more “hands on”.

The Fear of God stands at 20,000 unedited words presently. It’s got a long way to go, but if you are interested in being an advanced reviewer of draft copies when complete, just hit me on the “Contact Me” form with the phrase “Fear of God Advanced Review” and I will tag you to get an early copy.

I also appreciate your prayers as I complete this work, which seeks to address the questions: When is passivity and pacifism the right approach? When does God release us…no, require us to put ourselves at personal risk and consider ourselves at war? Not figuratively at war, but really, at war.
