The Rector

368 pp.
Suspense

“Michael Thompson offers a tantalizing murder mystery filled with chilling explorations of hypocrisy, true faith, and small-town secrets. It’s about sin and redemption. It’s about the search for truth, in both the physical and spiritual realms. And it’s all wrapped up in a puzzle that keeps even skeptics on their toes. The writing is compelling with a plot that grows ever thicker and offers even ardent mystery fans delightfully unexpected twists and turns. The intrigue is well developed with well-placed clues and cliffhangers. The characters are multidimensional and fascinating. The faith themes are so masterfully woven in that those who aren’t religious should simply find the novel to be top-notch suspense.” —Diane Gardner, ForeWord’s Clarion Review

This is followed by six stories of Christian laymen who have been pursuing God and journalling their experiences.

134 pp.
Apologetics

The problem of pain is widely considered the most difficult theological problem of all time. For thousands of years it has confounded the world’s most renowned theists, destroyed the faith of some of the most devout clergymen, and reduced devoted, lifelong believers to soul-crushing pessimism during the darkest hours of their lives. To this day the problem of pain remains a potent and incessant challenge for believers. Why God Allows Us to Suffer provides a bold and wholly unique answer to the most vexing theological question facing Christianity. For the first time ever, the problem of pain is answered in a comprehensive manner that is fully consistent with the Bible.

Children’s

Many grandparents, aunts, distant relatives, foster parents and other guardians issued by the state, raising today’s children. Some of these people are long past the retirement age and should be taking cruises, vacations in the summer or moved to warmer climates enjoying their latter years until they are unable to take care of themselves. Instead, they are coming to parent teacher conferences, buying school clothes and shoes, finding tutors for homework that they stopped doing long ago. Walks in the park, visits to the zoo and circus tickets were once a thing of the past, but have resurfaced so that this generation can somehow enjoy being a kid and have a better life. These are the true heroes of our generation. People who are willing to sacrifice their wants, needs and desires to be able to see the next generation survive and hopefully, thrive.
