Calling All Christ-Followers . . . 

“The Church in America is on the verge of a tremendous spiritual awakening, an awakening that will first be fueled by persecution unlike anything we have ever seen before in this land. Indeed, a prophetic word given in my home church during the month of November gave this warning to the Church: ‘Prepare for the fire of persecution!'” (An Excerpt from The Iron Saint)

What others are saying about The Iron Saint . . .

“The Iron Saint is truly an informative and inspiration work designed to equip every believer with many deeper areas of truth from God’s Word.  It is filled with teaching that is so needed in today’s world of complacency and indifference to the things of God.  This is a handbook for saints who want to rise above mediocrity, passivity and the common teaching of cheap grace.  Written with passion and clarity, TheIron Saint is a must read for serious students of the Word of God who want to maintain a more intimate walk with God.  Within its pages you will discover the secrets of becoming a powerful warrior for God who has unlimited opportunities in the Spirit.  You will want to use TheIron Saint as a companion to your everyday study of God’s Word as it will take you on a journey of revelation into what God is really looking for in every believer who is living for God’s pleasure.”
                   ~ Pastor Bill Brendel, Pastor, Glad Tidings Assembly of God, Mt. Ephraim, New Jersey

IN BLACK AND WHITE wins First Place in Historical Fiction in the
2020 Christian Indie Awards Contest.


A white woman. A black man. And their forbidden love.

Can endurance and faith sustain the love between a white woman and a black man, threatened by rejection, guilt, and racial injustice? Can love alone reconcile their starkly different worlds, lighting the way to a bright future together?

When graduate student, Tori Pendola, a white American woman, and Jebuni Kalitsi, a black Ghanaian exchange student and heir to his tribe’s chieftaincy, fall deeply in love, they must face not only their own inner demons of rejection and guilt but also the demons of societal hatred bent on destroying their relationship. Will their love survive the cruel and bitter attacks against them? Or will hatred and prejudice gain the upper hand?

In Black and White is a deeply moving story of the power of God’s love to restore all that is broken in our lives.
