Small-town Pastor John Cross, bent on leading his flock to follow God's calling. He's not the sort of man one would expect to have a checkered past.
But the truth is that the man behind the pulpit preaching was once an assassin for the CIA. When John decided to follow Christ, he put that work behind him, determined to pay penance for all the lives he took. He vowed to never kill again.
Now someone wants the peaceful pastor to pay for his sins with his own life. And when a terrorist out for revenge walks into the church, John's secrets are laid bare. Confronted with his past, he must face his demons and discover whether a man can truly change. Can he keep his vow,even when the people he loves are in mortal danger? Will his congregation and the brave woman he's learning to care for be caught in he cross fire? In the end, his death may be the only sacrifice he has left to offer...

Tell us a little about yourself. I spent 10 years in local church ministry both as a Middle School Pastor (and yes, I actually enjoyed it) and as a Creative Director/Pastor. I left ministry as God called me to pursue creative storytelling outside the local church by joining the team at Igniter Media, one of the nation's premiere church ready-made media companies. I live in Texas currently and am married to a beautiful woman with whom I have two football-obsessed boys and one anxiety-laden rescue dog.
What was your motivation behind this project? I loved reading thrilling fiction but struggled to find something with the level of action I desired but framed inside a biblical worldview. Not satisfied with what I was reading, I decided to see if I could write my own stories that rivaled Mission:Impossible and James Bond but with theological truths women within.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope first and foremost that they find the story entertaining. Alongside that, I also hope they encouraged by the truth that God's forgiveness covers not a multitude but every single past, present, and future mistake we've made.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love the novels of Clive Cussler, James Rollins, and Matthew Reilly. I think Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity is one of the best thrillers ever written. I would also say the Mission:Impossible franchise is one of my favorites, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention that my childhood hero is the original MacGyver!
