A Fresh Look at Eternity
Wouldn’t it be nice if someone took the stories and lessons of the Bible and turned them into modern fiction? C.S. Lewis was a master at it. Many have followed in his footsteps and, like Frank Peretti, produced some quality literature. But is there anyone writing good fiction from a Hebraic perspective?
Well, yes! Meet Cam Sharpe and Julie Bryson, authors of Eternity’s Account. In 2008, they published Stones of Fire, the first installment in this retelling of the story of creation. There are now four volumes in the series, and they’re not done yet! As they explain on their website, they have good reason to keep writing:
The goal of this series is to challenge you to re-evaluate how you see the world. While this series is fiction it contains many truths. Acts 17:11 basically says that each one of us is responsible for learning the Word of God for ourselves. There are many books out there that are leading readers, especially children, in the wrong direction; full of untruths about the spiritual reality that exists within God’s universe. Our ambition for this book series is that it will spark a curiosity and ignite a lifetime of seeking out HIS treasures in the Word.
In addition to writing fiction, Cam and Julie and their husbands are among the leaders of The Shepherd’s Rest, a fellowship based at the Christian retreat center Cam’s family has owned and operated in Sulphur, Louisiana, for many years. You can find their weekly video Torah commentary on YouTube at The Shepherd’s Rest Dock Talk, and you can find Cam and Julie on The Remnant Road on our next show!
The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn, Mike Clayton, Barry Phillips, and Hanoch Young is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show. You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.
