COLCHESTER, England (PRWEB) March 26, 2015
Through his work as a biblical scholar, F. John Hurr has spent countless hours exploring the impact both good and evil has on humanity. Now transposing his knowledge and wisdom into fiction, Hurr’s debut novel, “LIGHT OF THE DAMNED” (published by Xlibris UK), questions the existence of this unseen spiritual realm, as it tears apart an unassuming small village on the British coast.
In “LIGHT OF THE DAMNED,” this once genial and delightful place turns to one rife with murder, violence, kidnapping and drunkenness. Despite the clean appearance of whitewashed villas and neat Victorian hotels on the esplanade, the quaintness of Saturday deckchair concerts and the traditional Punch and Judy shows on the old wooden pier, pure wickedness abounds. Unseen by the town's people, a dire struggle is being fought between the forces of good and evil — a struggle which will soon impact every one of the inhabitants, including the angels and demons.
Bill Myers best-selling author of ‘Eli’ and ‘The Face of God’ wrote…
“A great book! An imaginative and well-written story of suspense and intrigue set in the land of the Red Dragon. Hurr gives us the most convincing spiritual warfare between angels and demons since Frank Peretti’s classic This Present Darkness. This book is perfect for those who want to descend into the spiritual and supernatural world of warring angels and demons. The author’s imaginative and graphic style of writing brings his characters to life so convincingly. So much so, that we should all give serious thought to the existence of an unseen spiritual realm. If you thought you knew all about the realm of angels and demons and the supernatural, then think again. Hurr’s book uniquely transports the reader into a totally convincing world where ordinary people, angels and demons enter into violent, life and death battles as evil forces attempt to usurp God’s kingdom on Earth.”
“LIGHT OF THE DAMNED” uniquely transports the reader into a totally convincing world where ordinary people, angels and demons enter into violent, life and death battles as evil forces attempt to usurp God’s kingdom on Earth. Using his own inimitable style and personal experiences, Hurr imaginatively portrays the true nature of spiritual warfare through suspense, intrigue and drama encountered in the lives of the main characters. The story presents a challenge to his readers for them to review their beliefs in the existence of an unseen spiritual realm.
