John Stephens, the prolific author of several books including nine small Christian books of biblical plays, releases a new Christian fantasy novel, titled “Peter and the Snow White Dove.” Stephens’ inspiration and mission was to write a religious fantasy novel that can be enjoyed by all ages, whether by Christians or not-yet-Christians, giving occasional pause for thought.
Taking its cue from religious and biblical teachings, the novel’s main character is Peter, a young farmer who speaks to God (the Great King) but is not yet a true believer. The Great King is a kind ruler who loves all his creation and works for their good. Peter is sent on various adventures by the King, and is aided by the other main character, Snowy, a dove called who is synonymous with the Holy Spirit.
“Peter and the Snow White Dove” has a light touch, with humour, and can be understood by even small children if read to them. It has a compelling message that has always been relevant for the past two millennia. In all Peter and Snowy’s adventures, God’s presence is suggested. Christians will recognize it at once, non-believers will do so eventually. It is a pleasurable and amusing tale that never fails to share a few insightful thoughts on faith.

About the Author
John Stephens was born in Hereford, England, in 1926. He joined the Royal Air Force in 1943 when he was 17 years old and served as a wireless operator aircrew, continuing until the Korean War when he retrained and was commissioned as a pilot. At the age of 40 he married Flora, a German national, and they had two children. Sadly, Flora died of a brain tumour after nine years.
At the age of 43, he went to college for training as a teacher, a career in which he continued until retiring at the age of 65. Two years after the death of Flora he married Audrey, who had been a missionary nurse in Kenya. It was then that Stephens’ life was turned around. With Audrey’s encouragement, including attendance at a Billy Graham meeting at Aston Football Ground and attendance at many Christian conferences, he gave his life to the Lord. Audrey died of cancer in May 2000. Today Stephens is an author and an active member of an Anglican church.
