When I wrote "The Proof," I thoroughly enjoyed the mysteries but never expected to be drawn closer to Jesus Christ. Since writing it, the effects of His death and life on those He encountered have been more meaningful, more real. It’s a great book to read during this season, so I put it on sale until Easter.
To find The Proof at your favorite store, please go to books2read.com. Enjoy
"Is the story of an ancient Christian relic actually true? What is the nature of this relic, and where could it be found? How did a West Coast art professor become thrust into a tumultuous world of religion, conspiracy, and secret societies? When the stakes are highest, can Gabe trust those closest to him? And will he ever overcome the guilt of his childhood tragedy? Religious intrigue, international scope, ancient clues, power and faith, you’ll find all this and more in a story that spans centuries. My friend Cheryl Colwell wrote a book that should make Dan Brown and Umberto Eco jealous. I highly recommend The Proof." – Don White

After escaping from an abusive husband in Texas, Tandi Reese drags her children to the outer banks of North Carolina. Desperately low on cash, she takes a job cleaning a dilapidated Victorian house after the owner, Iola Poole, dies. While cleaning, she discovers a closet full of boxes that proves irresistible. The contents of the boxes reveal a lifetime of Iola's prayers and her history, thus, we are able to travel through time to understand Iola's deep affection for people and her selfless giving.
In addition to her finances, Tandi's personal life is a mess with a rebellious teen and a withdrawn younger son. Her romantic choice with a self-centered man is also a bust. Yet, at her lowest, she draws on skills she learned with her grandfather and restores hurricane damage in a shop, thereby endearing her to a group of supportive women.
The book is beautifully written and filled with inspiration as Tandi learns from Iola's life and is transformed. This is another book I could not put down. A truly great novel.
"Do not judge." - Jesus.
I've been delving into the ideas Ted Dekker puts forth in "The Way of Love," and when it came to this teaching about judging, either he, or my own mind, began to ponder. In "The" garden was the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil. Satan tempted Adam and Eve saying if they ate of it, they would be like God. Like God in the ability to judge good and evil. Only they weren't able. We aren't able. We are not God. We can't see the whole picture like He can. Our judgment is faulty at best. Murderous at worst. So when Jesus said do not judge, isn't He, as the second Adam, commanding us to go to where we started? Letting God be God, letting Him do the judging? Trusting Him to ultimately deal with the issues that are passing away as surely as this life is?
In Christ, we are a new nation, a new people. Can I assert, a new Race? Our old man is dead, we are brand new. We are in the world but not of it. We NOW live in the Kingdom of God. He commands us not to get entangled in the affairs of this world, but to be light and love. Love: holding no record of wrong. It's dang hard when we see the meanness and arrogance around us, but as a follower of Christ, I don't see that He has called me to join the fray of angry humanity.
Can life in Christ be so simple as to be light and love in a dark world of hate? I think yes. Is it easy? No way. Nevertheless, I trust that I can do all things He calls me to do with the strength He supplies.
