Granted there are some issues that God embraces in both agendas, but in general does God lean more one way than the other? And if so, which one?Continue

I'm delighted to share the news that my debut Christian historical novel, Blood of a Stone (Tuscany Press) received an Independent Publishers Book Award (bronze) in the national category of religious fiction! Blood of a Stone is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieFirst, and other select bookstores.

Over at the MuseItUp Publishing blog, we've got an excerpt from my upcoming novel.http://museituppublishing.blogspot.com/2012/07/excerpt-wrong-enemy....  

It's got a new title now too. :-) I give you...The Wrong Enemy. About angels, children, God, and what happens when you make a mistake so big you can't make it right, and no one will ever forget it.

Book will be out in September. Enjoy!

Hi everyone... have been a member here for a while, but it has been difficult finding time to spend here. I hope to be more active here. My book, Too Much Stuff (2nd edition) was just released in March. You can check it out at http://www.amazon.com/Too-Much-Stuff-Winning-Against/dp/0834128314/....

A Jewish friend and I have spent a thousand hours and a million words dialoguing about our faiths, have found much that is the same (which we would have assumed was different) and much that is different (which we would have assumed was the same). e.g., she taught me the difference between orthodoxy and orthopraxy. We've talked about the different views about angels (e.g., it's her opinion that if Judaism officially believed in personal guardian angels, we'd all be required to pray for them, whereas Catholics are more prone to asking their guardian angels for favors and prayers).  

I find that kind of interfaith conversation positively fascinating and it really stimulates growth. I believe both of us intensified our devotion to God because of that long and open exchange. :-)

John - WELL SAID!!!

To Jeff - You have not offended me!!! I have been super busy with web designs and contract work and have not been able to take time to respond to some of your very thought provoking topics.

Would some of these same topics offend some Christians I met - probably. But then you can't please everybody. GRIN Nor should anyone try.

The genre of Christian literature be it fiction or non-fiction is growing because those who write for it are trying to improve their craft and not preach to the choir as much. These are difficult issues to deal with and hard to change in one's writing. It's a true paradigm shift.

When I have time I plan to start some of this conversation in the Christian Writer's Discussion forum.

So please don't stop your very thought provoking questions. I rather like seeing them. They make me think.

To put it succinctly - G-d brings the Jewish faith and the Christian faith together because we worship the same G-d. We all know the difference which separates these two religions. 

However, the Bible I read clearly states the decedents of Abraham as the chosen people of G-d. I think you have a lot to say to Christians being of that lineage.

Regarding Jeff Herman's message, my take is, Jesus was a good Jew and respected rabbi until the day he died.  He was a troublemaker, like a lot of other good people.  If, as a Christian I want to write about a Jew, whether its Jesus or Moses, I don't expect to give offense.  If Christians had never been able to get along with and talk with people from any other religions, then our group of faith would have never caught on in the world of ideas.  So from me to anybody of any other religion, or no religion, write whatever you want about Jesus or anybody else.  If it is thoughtful, honest, and well written, I hope it gets read.
