Darkness Comes in like a Flood — The Parker J Cole Show

They’ve just become Christians—and the battle explodes!
Plunged immediately after their baptism into a fiery spiritual storm, Loren and Eve Montcrest face the vicious assaults of the Arcane Institute and their Harmony society as its leaders pull out all stops in the battle to win back or destroy their old disciples. At the same time, the couple must struggle with their sinful natures, their fallen world, and continual demonic deceptions and assaults. 

God has placed them under the wise care of the head of the secret underground church, Alexander Renkin. Yet Alexander is in a precarious position himself as the nominal head of
the local KINDness Church, an arm of Harmony. Alexander wonders how much will they be willing to sacrifice and to suffer for their new faith when the deeper trials come.
When a mighty move of the Holy Spirit disrupts their pagan household, Loren and the now-pregnant Eve must abandon everything and flee to a secret sanctuary—a sanctuary they
quickly learn is not safe at all.

I remember when I read the first book by Rich and Linda, how thrilled I was to have discovered quite by accident! Now, I get to showcase the second book that follow this couple. Join me as I chat with my returning guests Rich and Linda Nathan as we explore the next in this exciting series that uses fiction to detail the dark side of New Age thought, practice, and philosophy.

SPECIAL EDITON OF WRITE STUFF — The Crossover Alliance with David Alderman

The Crossover Alliance began as an online community where a group of authors saw a vacuum in the Christian publishing industry – a complete lack of stories that contained Christ-centered themes with real-world content. A need was discovered, a gaping maw where secular and Christian publishers dare not tread for fear of crossing the boundary lines between secular and Christian fiction. The Crossover Alliance publishing company was birthed to cross this line, and we aim to disrupt the publishing industry with our unique mission. The Crossover Alliance is a unique publishing company specializing in Christian fiction that contains edgy, real-world content. We weren’t satisfied with the ‘rules’ that many Christian publishing companies have tried to force Christian authors to adhere to – however well-intended these rules were, and so we set out to create a publishing company that both breaks many of these rules and also adheres to biblical principles. Our fiction is fearless, sometimes scary, sometimes raw and edgy. But there in the middle of it all you will find a light to help you find your way through it, you will more than likely find redemption within the darkness, and most importantly you will find fiction that is true to the story, not the rules.

*SPECIAL EDITION OF WRITE STUFF — Of God and Monsters with Jess Hann

As The Crossover Alliance is fond of saying, “The light shines brighter in the darkness”

This month, I am showcasing authors who write dark fiction from a Christian worldview. They write in stepchild genres such as paranormal, horror, or thriller categories. Why? While some mainstream Christian readers may frown upon this, but I submit that these genres have a wonderful capacity of showing the human condition. In a horror story, it’s often about survival and damage control. Hard decisions are made to determine if help is the order of the day or if survival is. In monster stories, we come across an external enemy set on devouring us or destroying us. How do we fight against an adversary greater in strength than we are? In alien stories, often the scenario deals with a malevolent force seeking to invade and occupy the Earth. Can human ingenuity outwit these technologically advanced beings?

Of note, demonic activity is often parodied and made light of, but these authors I highlight know the reality of demonic influence and activity. They understand that without the power of the Most High, one cannot fight these things.

All in all, dark fiction is a genre that is compatible to Christian storytelling in a lot of ways. In this episode, author and publisher Jess Hanna and I discuss these things and more through the vehicle of pop culture, well-loved movies and scenarios and give a nod to edgy Christian publisher The Crossover Alliance on Wednesday, October 14th at 7 pm Eastern.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Jordan’s Deliverance with Allen Steadham

The Onchei are back.
And trouble looms…

The Onchei want to learn what happened to their brethren on Algoran from the only survivor, Zeetra. Yet they learn instead she has broken the Onchei’s highest law: never intermarry or have children with another race. For this, she now faces execution.

Jordan SnowFire fears the Onchei will blame the Mokta and seek retribution soon. Only an ancient heirloom, which contains the ultimate Onchei knowledge, can save the Mokta…except it’s on Earth, a world she hasn’t seen in decades.

Jordan sends her son, Arrow, and her friend’s daughter, Maska, to rescue Zeetra while she travels back to Earth to seek the Onchei artifact. What tie is there between a thousand-year-old object and Jordan’s ancestors? Could this explain why she and her mother were originally abducted and brought to Algoran?

In the skies of Algoran, a final confrontation looms between the Onchei and the Mokta. And on Earth, Jordan finds more than she could have possibly imagined…

The Church and Mental Illness — The Parker J Cole Show

Talks around mental illness have become more commonplace in today’s world. Over time, it is slowly becoming less of a stigma and more of an acceptable topic to have discussion. This drastic change is due to several reasons, but it also gives the Church an opportunity to access those who may have mental illness. Yet, there are those who still feel as if admitting you have a mental illness is showing a lack of faith or some other misconception
How can the church address those among us and outside of us who deal with mental illness? What are some steps a church can take to become more educated? What about us who are mentally ill — are we still able to serve the kingdom? These and many more questions are going to relate to our topic today as I chat with my returning guest co-host and contributor, Malinda Fugate.

Tonight on the Write Stuff–Aversion with Nate Allen

For as long as Eric Davis can remember, the name of that distinct carpenter from the bible (“that J name”) has caused him to have severe panic attacks. Living on a religion free road with his wife, Brooke, and his two children, Fiona and Mitchell, avoidance has done the trick. But things change, as they tend to do. On the day his wife comes home from church (wait, church?) to deliver her life changing news, Eric is given a peek behind the curtain for his aversion. Dark stairs leading down into a far darker place, long shadows reaching up the walls, reaching for him.

In a last effort to save his marriage and his sanity, he seeks answers to his aversion. The more he discovers about the why, the more he wishes he could close the curtain for good. But he’s already gone too far. To stop now would leave him worse off than before. What waits at the end of his journey is darkness unimaginable and a past that was better buried in the deepest parts of his mind.

Can You Have Morality without God? — The Parker J Cole Show

In a post-truth world, morality is often seen as something that is subjective and based off one’s one interpretation of it. Simply put, “Can I have morality without God?”

An alternative godless morality has been proposed by atheist apologists to combat the theistic view of morality also known as human flourishing. Is that the case? In this first of several apologetic based episodes, we’ll tackle morality with my guest co-host and contributor, former atheist Tim Bankes, author and apologist. You can call in at 646-668-8485 and press 1 to be live on air.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Staff of Light with David Bergsland

The life of Joen Bjarn’son had brought him to the point of unquenchable rage. He had withdrawn almost entirely within himself. Then he does something very stupid. He lashes out at the man responsible.

But Heglin Roark, Primate of the Ansélan Church for the Kingdom of Ferrelär strikes back with a vengeance. His plans to deal with Joen’s kind are basically genocidal. The Primate believes in the power of the church and its liturgy. The Known talk with the Lord directly, and he cannot control them. There are some personal things going on also, but the result is he’s increasingly using the Known as scapegoats. Joen’s campaign against him results in him moving his private war out into the open. Joen’s devastated by his guilt, insignificance, and isolation. He doesn’t Know the Lord.

Yet Lord Ansél has plans for him beyond his wildest imagination. 

Find out what they are as I chat with author David Bergsland about his book, Staff of Light on September 29th at 7 pm Eastern time. You can call in at 646-668-8485 and press 1 to be live on air.
