The inspiration for my book “The Kingdom, Here Be Dragons, Here Be Dreams” came from Psalm 45 – which speaks of a King who is the most attractive man on the planet; “fairer than the sons of men.” In the world his appearance was rather ordinary. The prophet Isaiah wrote of Jesus 700 years before His birth saying “He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.“ Isaiah 53:2-3.
To start with, I admit I too saw him like that. As I began to know him from the Bible and from experience, I got to see him as beyond handsome – wise, witty, subtle and gentle with unimaginable power.
Here’s a screen shot of page 1 of “The Kingdom,” circa 1997. I took a trip down memory lane and came back with a screen shot of page 1 the original story. I’ve still got the story on the old software in DOS, which I run in DOSBox just because I can.
Now I’ve got to promote the story. I’ve discovered that’s not going to be an easy matter! There’s been millions of eBooks published. My book is literally ‘one in a million.’ Sigh.
If you want to read an inspirational story where Jesus is the mighty one clothed with splendour and majesty with his sword girded on his side, this is the one. It’s Jesus from the point of view of His Kingdom. It’s Jesus without the religious exoskeleton. Come and read all about him.
For my WordPress followers – I hope you can come visit on Facebook. Thanks for following my posts.
If you have any ideas how to market this ‘one in a million’ book I’d love to hear from you.
