Tonight on the Write Stuff — The Rogue (Planets Shaken) with Lee W. Brainard

therogue“Men’s hearts shall fail from fear…for the planets of the heavens shall be shaken” (Luke 21:26).

When rookie astronomer Irina Kirilenko discovers a planet-size comet in the Kuiper Belt on a collision course for Mars, she first faces stonewalling from the Minor Planet Center, then coercion and stricture from NASA. They press her to embrace an ingenious reinterpretation of her discovery and ban her from talking about it.

It slowly dawns on her that the government is fostering a massive conspiracy to keep the public oblivious to the truth—Earth is facing an existential threat. Unwilling to be silenced, she recruits fellow astronomer Ariele Serrafe to evaluate her discovery, placing both in the crosshairs of government agents.

Set in a dystopian vision of the near future, The Rogue, the first volume of the Planets Shaken series, weaves the threads of biblical prophecy, ancient history, government conspiracy, and electric universe theory into a thought-provoking, tensely plotted thriller—one that asks us to reconsider the nature of the universe and the destiny of the world

leebriaindardI am an author and a Bible teacher. The Bible is — by far — my favorite book. I read it regularly in the original languages (Greek and Hebrew) and several literal English translations, frequently in the German (usually the Elberfelder) and the Greek OT (the Septuagint), and occasionally in the Latin. The areas of study that fascinate me the most include Bible languages, eschatology (prophecy), apologetics, ancient history (particularly ancient catastrophism), and electric universe cosmology.

Currently my wife, Nita, and I reside in Harvey, ND, where I share in the ministry of the Word at Harvey Gospel Chapel. We have four children, all of whom are married, and ten grandchildren. We live in an older fixer-upper that we have largely remodeled.

My work experience is extremely varied — my brother-in-law once teased me that I should write a book called “101 Occupations.” I have been, among other things, an Airborne Ranger, a cook, a waiter, a meat cutter, a carpenter, a mason tender, a painter, a remodeler, a janitor, a food-service delivery driver, a truck driver, a farm hand, a factory worker in numerous settings, a sawmill hand, a lumber yard hand, a security guard, a car salesman, an insurance salesman, a daytrader, a Jiffy Lube tech, and a propane truck driver. My current job is delivering newspapers. I also designed and built a 3600′ square foot, square-timber log home which we enjoyed for ten years.

I am a man of simple pleasures: backpacking, hiking, campfires, mountains, sunrises and sunsets, thunderstorms, starry skies, northern lights, coffee, dark chocolate, reading, friends, and good conversation. My favorite genres of music include the whisper of the wind in the pines, the call of Canadian geese, the cry of the loon, the bugle of a bull elk, hymns, worship music, and classical music. When I really get a strong itch for adventure, I like to climb mountains — over the years I have managed to climb Mt. Rainier once and Granite Peak in Montana three times. Next up? Maybe a fourteener with my son Noah in Colorado.

Life sayings:
“One short life to be a good soldier; One long eternity to be a fulfilled human being.”
“Eyes wide open, brain engaged, heart on fire.”
“Athanasius contra mundum.”

The ‘I’ in Politics — The Parker J Cole Show **REBROADCAST**

Parker J Cole BannerOften, the conversation with politics in U. S.  is whether a person is liberal or conservative with further distinctions between being far right, far left, moderate and a whole hosts of other sublabels. If one labels themselves as a Democrat or a Republican, depending on the receiving person’s POV, you’re the enemy, you’re misguided, etc.

But there is an ‘I’ in politics. What does that ‘I’ stand for? According to our guest today, it’s important that we identify where we get principles in politics—what is the fundamental principle in a good political system.

Intrigued? Join me for the conversation with social media political commentator Cody Libolt as we discuss a growing number of Christian who see the ‘I’ in politics and what that means.

The Parker J Cole Prayer Broadcast

Parker J Cole Banner“O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name…”Nehemiah 1:11

So much has happened this summer. The world watched as the U. S. was struck with hurricane after hurricane. We watched as Puerto Rico and the Caribbean were decimated by them. Bangladesh flooded and destroyed villages and killed many more. Thousands left without homes. The ground shook in Mexico and took the lives of many. We have watched as heads of state in various countries bicker back and forth about nuclear power and weapons of destruction. Apathy has grown in our youth. Despondency in our elderly. Complacency in our adults.

In our own personal lives, we have failed relationships, painful pasts, uncertain futures, a rocky present, illness-racked bodies, lint filled pockets, unrealized dreams, wakeful nights, and tortured minds.

The hymn, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” says “What a friend we have in Jesus/All our sins and griefs to bear/What a privilege to carry/Everything to God in prayer

Often, we think of prayer as the last line of defense when it’s our first level of attack. We will be praying for all of us today. Call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air. Or, download Stitcher on your mobile device. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/10823335.

About the Book

Daughter of Jerusalem” takes its 21st-century readers on a journey back to the first-century world of a young rabbi named Yeshua—better known to us as Jesus. Mara, the young heroine of this story, gets to mingle with the crowds who come to hear him teach during his visits to Jerusalem and, finally, to meet him face to face in a brief, life-changing encounter—one that comes at no small cost to herself. For middle-grade readers who want to use the book as a springboard for deeper study, there are Bible references and questions on each chapter, as well as a glossary. For others, the story itself will be the full journey.

Genre: Christian Fiction
