The Celtic Cross

The Celtic Cross series

The Celtic Cross series is a sweeping saga of Scotland and Ireland. In Part I, Scotland: The Struggle for a Nation, Mary and Gareth’s quest to solve Scotland’s oldest riddle takes them through 4 turbulent epochs:
Epoch 1 The Keeper of the Stone, Of Saints and Chieftains, St. Columba comes to Iona in the Sixth Century;
Epoch 2 The Forger of a Nation, Of Kings and Kingdoms, finds Kenneth mac Alpin uniting the Scots and Picts in the Ninth Century;
in Epoch 3 The Refiner of the Realm, Of Queens and Clerics, Queen Margaret brings civility and manners to the nation in the Eleventh Century;
and in Epoch 4 The Vanquishers of Tyranny, Of Priests and Patriots, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce complete freedom’s work in the Fourteenth Century.

The Celtic Cross Series Part II, Ireland: The Pursuit of Peace, takes Mary and Gareth to a troubles-torn Ireland. In 6 epochs they experience the pain and the grandeur of: the settlement of Northern Ireland, the Cromwellian war, the Battle of the Boyne, the union of parliaments, the great famine, and the birth of Northern Ireland.

Epoch 1 The Keeper of the Stone, Of Saints and Chieftains

1993: Three modern young people listen as the Scottish storyteller spins his tales of adventure, romance, and intrigue. While candles flicker and a Celtic harp sings its accompaniment, the question grips them: Can they find the answer to Scotland’s oldest secret?

563: Young Corban, tending his father’s sheep—stupid creatures that they are—on the back of the island, has no idea how much his life is about to change when he sees the holy men arrive on the beach below him. Columba has led his little band of monks from Ireland, seeking expiation from his great sin. Can he find peace on the beautiful Iona—or must more souls die yet?

The quest is begun: Join Mary, Gareth and Brad as they set forth on an adventure that interrelates past and present and that ultimately teaches them life-changing truths.

Glastonbury: The Novel of Christian England

Glastonbury: The Novel of Christian England

An epic search for the Holy Grail

Witness 1,500 years of Christianity in the face of war and chaos. The last Glastonbury monk delves through myth, legend, and recorded history on an heroic quest for truth and meaning while Glastonbury Abbey stands sentinel, a beacon of hope and light for those seeking meaning for today.

Journey through Celtic, Roman, Arthurian, Anglo-Saxon, Norman and Tudor times.

Like Ken Follett? You'll love Glastonbury!

"An almost perfect blend of history, mythology, and excellent storytelling."

"I am looking forward to going back to the beginning of the book and rereading the entire thing again."

"If I ever need to 'lose' myself to this world in a book, I break out Glastonbury...the solid, believable characters, the times they lived in, the troubles, heartache and triumphs they experience along the it."

"An epic book that overcomes the reader with tears of joy and of despair."

"What a work! Every reader can be enveloped in the sheer scope and quality, every historian be constantly nodding at the precise detail and accuracy, and every Christian can rejoice in the fullness of scripture. For me it is simply beyond descriptive praise. I would urge all who value truth to treat themselves to a feast."
