True wisdom is found in living our faith as if we were to meet our Maker before day's end. May God the Father, through His gratuitous grace, bring these manuscripts to life in the hearts and minds of all those He calls to Himself. Then, through faith and trust in the Holy Spirit, we can leave the past to divine mercy, the present to divine love and the future to divine providence. In doing this, we'll receive the spiritual peace that enables us to entrust ourselves to the love and mercy of God as we follow Jesus into eternal life. Save us King and Savior of the world - for by your cross and resurrection you have set us free...
Peace of Christ,
It's a pleasure to finally meet you Mr. Turner and thank you for chatting with us. As a published author, do you enjoy dialoguing with your readers?
Yes, absolutely! I enjoy responding to questions and comments from readers all over the world. In essence these ebooks are about spiritual warfare and the pursuit of holiness that leads to eternal life in Jesus Christ. Since eternity is forever, our standing before God should be of great concern to us. This is just one of the messages I hope to share through these manuscripts.
What do you think might be inspiring you to write this series of eight ebooks, paperback books and audiobooks?
The short answer to your question is that I'm writing this series for the "glory of God" and the "salvation of souls." If you look at the state of our world today, you'll find there's a universal life and death struggle going on between good and evil. While some people are keenly aware of this conflict, many others remain completely oblivious. Given what's eternally at stake, I wanted to highlight the spiritual nature of this battle to help people become more aware of how this conflict will inevitably affect their lives. I used to do a lot of classroom teaching for the Catholic Church in a program called The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). This is an adult religious education program for candidates and catechumens seeking full communion with the Catholic Church. With my heavy flying schedule, however, it's difficult for me to be available the same night each week to teach. Consequently, I found myself asking God to show me another way I could use my Masters Degree in Theology to help spread the Gospel message. Then, one morning about five years ago, I simply woke up and told my wife that I was going to write what became my first ebook. At that point in time, I only knew what the title was going to be. Now, I've actually written four ebooks (with three more in the works) and I get to share them speed of light (electronically) with anyone I meet. I have to say the whole experience has been a real blessing and a great adventure. It never occurred to me that one day I would be using my theology degree to write ebooks that could be shared so quickly and easily with anyone in the world who has a computer.
This fifth manuscript comes to you from the same author who brought you "Our Eucharistic God" and "Beyond the Veil." It is a biography that examines the Blessed Virgin Mary's unique role in God's plan of salvation and her powerful intercession on our behalf before the throne of her Son - who just happens to be Almighty God.
This fourth manuscript comes to you from the same author who brought you "Atheism Rising" and "Our Eucharistic God." By examining a cross-section of religions and cultures, this work takes a look at the worldwide psycho-spiritual phenomenon known as the near-death experience (NDE). The personal testimonies shared here provide compelling evidence of an afterlife that is both inevitable and eternal.
This third manuscript comes to you from the same author who brought you "The Light Against the Darkness" and "Atheism Rising." It examines Jesus' institution of the Eucharist during the famous Jewish Passover meal known to the world as "The Last Supper." It also looks at the Catholic Church's teaching on the True Presence according to Apostolic Tradition, Sacred Scripture and the Patristics.
This second manuscript comes to you from the same author who brought you "The Light Against the Darkness." It takes a look at the newfound aggressiveness in modern atheism which seeks to attack, suppress and ultimately destroy people's faith in God. Sadly, the errors, falsehood and godlessness being promoted by this mindset directly threatens the salvation of souls.
This rather unique work comes to you from an ex-military pilot turned theologian. Before becoming an author, he flew national security missions against the former Soviet Union during the Cold War years of the Reagan Administration. This manuscript is about the spiritual warfare we encounter in our daily lives and the eternal ramifications this conflict will have for each one of us.
