Xulon Press presents a Christian fictional story that keeps readers on the edge of the seat until the very end of the story.
ARLINGTON, Texas, June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Author Abraham Oluwafemi Adebo provides a thought-provoking Christian fictional story in Divine Wings: A Novel on the Rapture of the Church ($21.99, paperback, 9781662880865; $9.99, e-book, 9781662880872).
Adebo's fiction traces the journey of an American pastor and scion of East Africa's legendary evangelists, Pastor Johnson McIver Shelby Jr., whose prodigious intellect pitted him against any conservative reading of the Bible. He disparaged the traditional Christian teaching of the veracity of the Bible as the Word of God and the reality of heaven or the rapture of the Church, leading most of his followers on the path of perdition. Unfortunately, when the rapture did come, the true believers were taken to heaven on divine wings. Tragically, Pastor Johnson Jr. and many of his followers were left stranded on earth under the ruinous rule of the Antichrist. Will Pastor Johnson Jr. having realized his error valiantly save his soul and the others he had led astray, or will it be too late?
When asked what inspired the author to write this book, Adebo said, "My inspiration came from preaching a series of messages on the End Time about three years ago. During this period, I listened to a message on Christian radio by Dr. David Jeremiah, who used a story telling method for his sermon delivery. I learned from Dr. Jeremiah's approach that it was possible to reach a lot more people through story telling than conventional preaching style as this will command more attention and followers among Christians, mostly the young ones. Hence, the idea of this book."
