Biography

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,
J.M. Turner

Smashwords Interview

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 10 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 six years ago, I simply woke up and told my wife that I was going to write what became my first book. At that point in time, I only knew what the title was going to be. Now, I've actually written six ebooks (with four 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 books that could be shared so quickly and easily with anyone in the world who has a computer.

Series

Spiritual Warfare and the Pursuit of Holiness
This is to become a series of 10 ebooks that together will explore spiritual warfare and the pursuit of holiness from a Christian perspective. The first 6 manuscripts in the series are finished and each ebook has a "free sample" that can be read by simply tapping the white "online reader" button. The purchased manuscripts download easily and can be read even on a smart phone. The first 6 ebooks can be found here at "Smashwords," but they're also available through Audible, Amazon, Apple iBooks, Apple iTunes and Barnes and Noble. ⛪️ It is my hope that reading and listening to this series will increase people's spiritual awareness of God and the afterlife that awaits us. For it is only in hearing and responding to our heavenly Father's "call to holiness" that we'll receive the graces necessary to convert our hearts to Christ, so we can be sanctified by the Holy Spirit for the eternity to come. These are the "forever" reasons why we should take time each day to pray for the people of the world. For it is in praying for others that we advance our own salvation as well. Peace of Christ!
