The Temptations of the Cross (A Novel) – Book Launch

I, Gabriel, the archangel of God, bear witness….


Lucifer unsheathed his great sword and raised it toward heaven with both hands and threw back his head to let loose a demonic scream. ¨This soul is mine!¨


Jerusalem, 66 A.D., six years before the Temple and the Holy City are destroyed by the Romans. The Jewish rebels have won a victory against the Roman legions from Syria. In the midst of the celebration only the Rabbi Gamaliel, once the teacher of the Apostle Paul, has remembered General Vespasian and his army in Egypt. He has sent Onkelos, his most faithful student, to spy on the Romans and to put to rest the rumors of an impending invasion. The message he brings back plunges Gamaliel into a crisis that rocks the very foundation of his faith.

Gabriel, the archangel of God, takes us on a journey into the Jewish past to discover the beauty of the Days of Artistry, to feel the fear at the Sacrifice of the Promise Child, to sweat and labor in the Long Desert March. Then we journey towards the Messianic future to join a young girl in the Birth Pangs of Promise, to suffer the agony of the Divine Irony and wonder at the Death of Sin upon a rubbish heap outside the Holy City. It is here that we encounter the Temptations of the Cross. The temptation of Jesus to avoid the cross and the temptation of Satan to use the cross as his instrument of revenge. Upon the outcome of these two temptations hang the hopes of the nations. But Satan does not know that the Divine Sting is already in motion.

From deadly spiritual battles to quiet thoughts on the ways of God with men, from the Halls of heaven to the Gates of hell and all the drama that lies between, experience the History of Redemption like never before, as seen and told by Gabriel, the guardian angel of Jesus and the archangel of the Almighty God.

Jesus was an Alien (and Other Stories of Faith) – Book Launch

Jesus was an Alien

Created for His Pleasure

The joy of the Lord is my strength.
Getting rid of all my small ambitions
to make this one thing the hallmark of my life.
To please God.
Whether I get what I pray for or not,
whether my circumstances change or not,
whether I am healed or not.
To consider every sacrifice a small price to pay
to obtain the pearl of great price.
His pleasure. 





So begins Jesus was an Alien (and Other Stories of Faith). Here you might talk to Jesus about your neighbors and get his perspective.  Here you may encounter God in flip flops in a boardroom or discover that Jesus was an alien (or not).  Here a funeral can be a wedding and an eight year old can teach you the Heart of God.  Watch as El Shaddai, the Almighty God, intervenes at the Tower of Babel.  

Discover the Way of the Desert Warrior with Joshua at the foot of Mt. Sinai and rejoice in the shock of Lucifer at the cross as Jesus raises his spiritual head and looks upon his enemy in triumph.

All this, and more, awaits to inspire your own story of faith. Read.  Share.  Love.  The Divine Story is lived in you and through you.
