Description
Suppose you made a visit to the Holy Land, and discovered that you had the power to heal the sick and raise the dead. That’s what happens to thirty-three-year-old Jacob, in my 24,000-word novella Last Chance, a spiritual-thriller set amongst the most holy sites of Christendom. Jacob has always been different; able to see into people’s innermost souls, even as a young child. But when he and his close friend, Pastor Michael Abrams, make a pilgrimage to Israel, Jacob discovers, to his amazement, that his visit has been foretold. Miriam, a mysterious young woman, has been waiting for him, convinced that he is the Chosen Messenger; divinely selected to prove once and for all that Jesus is the Son of God. As Jacob, Michael, and Miriam track the footsteps of Christ, Jacob begins to have stunning visions of Jesus’ final days and to demonstrate many of his miraculous abilities. The quest ultimately leads the three friends to Turin, Italy, where Jacob is inexorably drawn to uncover the secrets of the fabled Shroud of Turin. But as a dark and lethal conspiracy begins to simmer around him, time may be running out for Jacob to fulfill his purpose. If he fails, is this the ‘Last Chance’ for mankind? My inspiration in writing Last Chance was my strong faith and love for Jesus as my savior. When I began writing the book, it was simply to express my own feelings but as the story began to take on the twists and turns of a thriller, I realized that it could become an inspiration to others as well; both believers and non-believers. I hope that I may send you the manuscript.
About the author
Graduated High School, Portland, Or (1965), in the US Air Force from 1966 to 1969 and then graduated from Portland State University (BS). I have a wonderful and happy life. Grew up with two loving and inspirational parents and sister. My dad is deceased; my mother going strong at 91. Married in 1969 and have been blessed with two wonderul and caring sons. Each one of my family members was an influence and contributed to my book. My career started in banking and shortly after became self employed as a real estate appraiser. That has been my career for the past 35 years. I am now semi-retired and decided to use my spare time to begin to write down my thoughts. My inspiration for writing this book is my strong faith and love for Jesus as my savior. When I began to write this book it was to privately express my feelings. At that time I had no intention of publishing the book. As the book progressed and took form as an actual story I felt that my words could possibly be an inspiration to others, to believers and non-believers as well. My second book (Tears of Glory) is about 80% complete
