Last night we finally finished my novel that comes out this Christmas. The legend of Santa.
It attempts to turn the entire legend back around and ties him directly to Christ's birth, death and resurrection.
Hopefully if I have done my job, we as parents have an easy way to share Santa with the kids and let him put the Christ back in Christmas. That book went to final edit at Simon and Shuster this morning and it comes out in November.
Tonight, I am trying to finish my next book.
It IS about Islam.
This is a non fiction and most politically incorrect book not only that I have written, but perhaps even that I have read.
We prayed for a while. I am not willing to die for lies, spin or sloppy research. I am willing to be called names, lose my place in society and God forbid die, for the truth that no one else will say.
NEVER AGAIN IS NOW.
Many people were saying to me, before Charleston, "all this love stuff won't work".
First, I can give you three powerful examples of it working:
1. Jesus, the ultimate. revolutionary
Second, just because you stand for love and reconciliation doesn't mean you don't speak the truth. Sometimes the very hard truth.
This is going to be a powerful book that everyone should have while we are still allowed to speak, print and read the truth.
It is softcover so it is inexpensive and easy to keep in your back pocket or purse.
It debunks all the lies that we hear everyday and most importantly it quotes from the Koran and today's respected Middle Eastern Muslim Clerics and political leaders. All heavily footnoted from original sources.
We have approached this prayerfully and have asked for the help of Muslim reformers. People who are still Muslim that want to make their religion into a religion of peace.
It comes out in August. You can pre-order it HERE.
