Wind Follower: a Christian fantasy novel.
A fourth tribe has begun to settle in the land of the three tribes, a tribe fated to change the culture and religion of the land. But newly-married Satha and her young husband Loic are too busy forging their new life together. However, when Satha is dishonored, and Loic must avenge her honor, they find themselves drawn into a cultural battle in addition to their own personal quests. Battling Loic are the Arkhai, spirits of the land, who know his quest will lead him toward the God whose place they have usurped. But with the Creator's aid there remains hope they will be reunited and their love healed, even if it means losing the love and respect of their clan, tribe, and people.
Seeds of Bible Study For all who have ever been interested in reading the Bible, this isn't simply a direction manual for creating bible study materials, it is a VERY strong apologetic for our faith, and I try to discuss the doctrines central to all Believers in Jesus Christ.
