Emperor gods have ruled the earth only one time before in modern history - during the time of Jesus. The rise of Christianity ended their reign as deities more than two centuries later, and none have appeared since. So is it possible for an emperor god to rise again? JUDE, from David C. Cook, explores that question: "A man rises to the pinnacle of earthly wealth, fame, and power by calling on demonic powers; his twin's opposing path brings him into direct conflict," the publisher says of the novel. JUDE can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Google Play, Christianbook and eChristian.

My novels in 2011 and 2012 —PEACE/Summerside Press and OIL/Guideposts—looked at what might happen if Israel decides to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. I've written 19 inspirational novels with Tyndale, Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, Guideposts, Summerside Press, David C. Cook, Hodder & Stoughton, Harold Shaw (part of Random House) and Victor Books. In addition, I write a regular science and technology blog for U.S. News & World Report called "At the Edge" for the magazine's News section, which is also available through TechMediaNetwork. I'm also the executive director of Climate Nexus, a non-profit strategic communications group and sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors based in New York. 

I was former Vice President Dan Quayle's communications director at the White House; a senior public affairs official in the U.S. Senate and federal agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration; a national journalist with Knight-Ridder and others; head of a strategic communications consulting firm for 13 years; and the director of legislative and public affairs at the National Science Foundation from 2006-2011.

Ramona Tucker and I co-founded OakTara Publishers, an inspirational fiction publishing house, in 2006 to encourage new writers and bring out-of-print works from established authors back into the marketplace.  OakTara has published 300-plus titles since then, and now partners with Barbour Books and BroadStreet Publishing on selected titles sold to retail bookstores like Barnes & Noble and Books a Million and big-box retail stores such as Wal Mart and Sam's Club.

While fundamentalist Christians and Jews celebrate and Islamic populations rage, world leaders look for peaceful solutions. Robertson Dean handles Nesbit’s complex plot with precision. His depictions of the anxiety over peace talks aimed at permanently partitioning Jerusalem to settle the Arab-Jewish conflict capture Israelis’ genuine fears of their nation’s extinction. Dean's deft handling of diverse nationalities, dual genders, and varying ages ensures that listeners can easily keep track of characters and plot. The story’s subtle Christian perspective is portrayed through brief remarks and an occasional prayer that is essential to the story."  G.D.W. © AudioFile Portland, Maine
