If God spoke through a prophet today, would you really want to hear what He has to say? That’s the premise of the new book, “Hometown Prophet," (http://www.hometownprophetbook.com). Pre-released as an e-book, the publisher is making it available for free for a limited time. (See below for details).
The storyline of “Hometown Prophet” follows Peter Quill who begins to have dreams that come true. He is heralded as a modern day prophet until his dreams challenge the beliefs and biases of people in the community. When he comes under attack for his prophecies, he discovers what it truly means to be a prophet of God.
“We always hear about the hot button issues that supposedly define Christianity and some aren’t even in the Bible,” the author, Jeff Fulmer said. “Christ specifically tells us to take care of the poor and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Those are big challenges that should keep us busy for a while.”
The story is set in the author’s hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, and some of the prophecies are loosely based on actual events that took place in the area, such as an attack on a mosque and an environmental disaster.
“I did not foresee those events,” Fulmer wanted to make clear. “They were just used as backdrops to the narrative. But those are the kinds of things that go on all around us every day. Maybe God is trying to get our attention,” Fulmer added. "We just need to listen to what He is saying.”
