In The Shadow of Lions by Ginger Garrett

MASTER, AWARD-WINNING HISTORICAL NOVELIST QUESTIONS: WAS ANNE BOLEYN A DEVOUT, MISUNDERSTOOD MARTYR? (COLORADO SPRINGS, CO) Ginger Garrett is a recognized expert in ancient women’s history, having received much critical acclaim for Chosen: The Lost Diaries of Queen Esther and Dark Hour. Yet Garrett has now turned her attention from biblical women to that ill-reputed, oft-hated woman of history, Anne Boleyn. And the story Garrett weaves is anything but the story you’d expect. What if Anne was simply a frightened girl sent to make amends for her family’s soiled name? What if her refusal to succumb to the king’s sexual advances wasn’t borne of manipulation for the crown but of obedience to the demands of her faith? Remember, Anne was an enemy to the religious establishment of her time, espousing the virtue of reading the scriptures for oneself rather than paying the priests of the Catholic church for Biblical counsel and absolution. Was her staunch belief in the personal relat

Walk The Talk: Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been toying with the idea of a "walk the talk" blog for quite a while. And when MyFriendAmysBlog.com began her Saturday Christian Fiction Carnival where she asks a question and those who want to participate blog their answers and then visit each other's sites to comment, I thought it would be a great form of online fellowship to do the "walk the talk" idea that way. As Christians, we're supposed to set an example for each other as well as non-believers. We're supposed to uplift and encourage, and I believe that sharing our stories will do just that! So, let's "Walk the Talk." Post your answer to the following question on your blog and insert your information in the window below. Then visit others who have posted an answer and comment on their posts. I pray that this activity will be an encouragement to all of us. The Question: Although it sounds cliche, what are you thankful for this year? My Answer: This was a challenging

Unity in the Body of Christ

It has always bothered me that Christians spend so much time defending their denominations to each other that we’re missing out on the great commission that Jesus bestowed upon us to spread the good news throughout the world. Shouldn’t we put greater emphasis on what binds us together? You know, Jesus! Can’t we all just get along? So when I was approached by Thomas Williams to help him promote unity in the worldwide body of Christ after I reviewed his book “Knowing Right From Wrong” for his blog tour in October, I had to say, “Absolutely.” He sent me a couple of his other books and asked me to review them, so here are those reviews. “Greater Than You Think” by Thomas D. Williams, LC, ThD systematically and intellectually refutes several objections to the Christian faith, God and organized religion voiced by well-known atheists. These 27 questions are comprehensively grouped by topic: Religion; Religion and Society; Faith – Science – Reason; Christianity; and Atheism. The quest
