I just released this new 96 page booklet about the historical interpretation of religious freedom in America.
I examine the Founders’ original intent behind the freedom of religion in the First Amendment. I use documented historical sources to tell the story of the transformation of religious freedoms from a “wall of separation” that protected Christianity from the state, into a wall of oppression weaponized by the state against Christianity.
The more I study this issue, the more I see it as crucially important to understanding the Gospel. And the more I come to realize how many Christians misunderstand this issue in today’s climate of “End Times” conspiracy theories.
It’s not a big book, it’s just 106 pages. Packed with Scripture and the kind of fascinating theological insights you’ve come to expect from this theo-dramatic writer.
Israel: the Chosen People, the children of Abraham. They were God’s elect in the Old Testament. But why were they so special to God? And does that specialness carry over to the New Testament? But what about the Church of Jesus Christ? Are there 2 Peoples of God?
It’s all about Jesus, folks. The Old Testament is all about Jesus.
I examine how the promise of God to Abraham was fulfilled in the New Testament through the faithful Israelite, Jesus the Messiah, and how that changes everything.
The apostle John writes the book of Revelation under the brutal regime of the evil emperor Nero. And the message of the secret apocalypse: The terrible judgment of God will shortly take place, and Jesus is coming quickly.
You will believe what happens next…
An epic tale of two cities: Rome and Jerusalem in the first century. A theological novel of spiritual warfare with angels and demons and the end of the old covenant age.
Just Released! #1 Seller in Amazon Bible Prophecy category!
I just released this Bible study to go with my new novel, Tyrant: Rise of the Beast.
So many Christians teach outrageous speculation about Bible prophecy. It’s frustrating for serious Bible students. What if you found out most of it is simply mistaken? That the biblical authors were using Old Testament imagery, not a crystal ball gaze into our modern future? What if you found out that everything that modern prophecy pundits are looking for – the Rapture, the Tribulation, the Antichrist, The Beast – was not what they told you it was, but something different?
Tyrant: Rise of the Beast: Rome, A.D. 64. A Roman prefect and his Jewish servant are ordered by the mad emperor Nero to track down a secret Christian document that undermines the Roman empire and predicts the end of the world. But they’re not prepared for the spiritual warfare they’ve unleashed. The truth behind the origin of the most controversial book of the Bible: Revelation. A historical conspiracy thriller with angels and demons.
It’s coming. It’s controversial. It’s going to cause a protest.
But it’s going to entertain the hell out of you — with the truth of heaven.
It won’t be out until near end of February.

Those familiar with my novel series Chronicles of the Nephilim should know that my latest favorite Bible scholar is Michael Heiser. His writing on the fantastic and the strange in the Bible will open your eyes to the supernatural like Elisha’s servant.
But he has a high view of Scripture and steers clear of Christian Crazy Land, that tends to dominate that discussion.
If you don’t know what “Divine Council” means then you must read this guy’s work. It will change your life as it did mine.
I highly recommend his work, and his blog and podcast, which I listen to faithfully.
(His Naked Bible Podcast series on the book of Leviticus turned the most boring book in the Bible for me into one of the most fascinating. Go to iTunes to find those past podcasts)
