In the Last Days—Free on Kindle, Again

On August 27, 2016, you can download the Kindle version of In the Last Days: A Brief Guide to Christ's Second Coming for Latter-day Saints, free. It's always free for Prime and Kindle Unlimited members, and through Amazon's Matchbook program, but on the last Saturday of this month, it will be free to anyone.

This is a basic guide for newcomers to the topic who want to look at a wide variety of scriptural passages that cast light on the Last Days, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the Millennium, and the end of the world. Students of the Second Coming won't find anything sensational, highly speculative, or particularly new or groundbreaking in this book, but rather a simple, scriptural foundation for the doctrine surrounding this sacred season.

More elementary than exhaustive, the guide walks through many of the major events surrounding the Second Coming of Christ, mainly through the Standard Works of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price—but also through some archaeological, historical, and statistical sources. (It's a compilation of posts from my blog "Put on the Armor of Light," written between September 2014 and November 2015.)

Song of Falling Leaves Free on Amazon Kindle

The Young Adult fantasy novel Song of Falling Leaves is available for free on Amazon Kindle from Tuesday, April 12, 2016 through Saturday, April 16, 2016.

What's Song of Falling Leaves about? 

Fourteen-year-old Andi McCall lives in a high-rise apartment in downtown Chicago with her an ambitious, overworked father and a distant, addicted mother. While her mom is in rehab one summer, Andi leads a dull life until her mother's drug dealer nearly takes it from her. With a little convincing from her friend Ben, Andi decides to spend the rest of the summer on her grandfather's ranch outside Elko, Nevada.

The evening she arrives on the ranch, Andi meets a incredible Quarter Horse named King's Jubilation. Orphaned as a colt, the horse has grown into a unbreakable stallion, but after a life-threatening illness, Jubi learns to accept Andi's gentle hand and the pair are soon more than friends. Together with Jubi Andi discovers that she is more gifted than she ever dreamed, with a secret past beyond her imagination.

The novel is the first book in a four-part series that follows Orlando "Andi" McCall's emergence as The Wanderer, a Benevolent who protects the earth from utter destruction during the Last Season. The second book in the series, The Last Winter, is in progress and is due to be published in the near future.

You can also buy a paperback copy of the novel on Amazon or save 20 percent off the paperback price with the code SC29X26E on CreateSpace

This Easter Download Behold the Man on Kindle for Free

In honor of the Easter season, Behold the Man: A Biblical Narrative of the Last Days of Jesus Christ will be free for anyone to download on Kindle from March 1 through March 5, 2016. I started writing this book three decades ago as I began a study of the events surrounding the last week of the mortal life of Jesus Christ, as found in the New Testament. The Passion of Christ is the story of the greatest tragedy and triumph in history. I have never found anything to compare with it.

In the spring of in 1986, I started to put together in my own mind the enormous puzzle of the accounts of the Passion of Christ as told in the gospel accounts of the New Testament. The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John each provide unique details about the events leading to Jesus’ death. My goal in writing this book was to: (1) identify the unique details from each of the gospels relating to the Passion; (2) to unify that material; and (3) to present it in an easy-to-read, narrative or story format.

The source for this book is the King James Version (1611) of the New Testament. While this book is completely based on scripture, I have updated the punctuation and paragraphing, altered some capitalization and pronouns, and added single and double quotation marks where appropriate. I have also added conjunctive or transitional words, without setting them off with brackets, and deleted some words, to help the flow of the narrative.

This 140-page book is also available in paperback for $6.33.

I hope reading this book—a labor of love that took me 23 years to complete—will help you draw closer to Christ during this Easter season.

The Law of Attraction and the Scriptures — Free on Kindle

From February 1 through February 5, 2016, anyone can download the Kindle version of The Law of Attraction and the Scriptures, Second Edition for free. To Prime and Kindle Unlimited members, it's been free since the new edition was first published in December 2015 (also free via Amazon's Matchbook program). But during the first five days of February, anyone can get the Kindle version for free. (You can also purchase this book in paperback from Amazon.)

If you've been wondering if the law of attraction is real, or if the ideas presented by secular teachers of this law have any relevance or foundation in the scriptures, this book is for you. The book takes a simple view of the law of attraction (also called the law of the harvest or the Royal Law), relying on the standard works accepted by Latter-day Saints—The Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price—to illuminate its meaning.

In the Last Days—Free on Kindle

From January 23, 2016 to January 27, 2016, you can download the Kindle version of In the Last Days: A Brief Guide to Christ's Second Coming for Latter-day Saints for free. It's been free since its publication in November 2015 to Prime and Kindle Unlimited members, plus through Amazon Matchbook program. But during five days in late January, it will be free to anyone. Free, by the way, is a very good price.

This book examines a variety of scriptural passages that cast light on the Last Days, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the Millennium, and the end of the world. It retells events surrounding the Second Coming of Christ, mainly through the Standard Works of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price—but also through archaeological, historical, and statistical sources. It's a compilation of posts from my blog "Put on the Armor of Light," written between September 2014 and November 2015.

The Law of Attraction and the Scriptures, Second Edition

Is the law of attraction real? If you have been wondering if the ideas presented by secular teachers of this law have any relevance to or a foundation in the scriptures, The Law of Attraction and the Scriptures, Second Edition is for you. This updated edition explores the law of attraction—also called the law of the harvest or the Royal Law—as revealed in the standard works of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price. The book discusses the background of the modern concept of the law of attraction, including:

• Newton's Third Law of Motion (the Law of Reciprocal Actions)
• Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation
• The zero-point field
• The role of positive thoughts and beliefs in our lives
• What the universe really is
• Why nothing is impossible with God
• How Jesus expressed affirmations
• The power of gratitude
• True wealth

By the way, I take a conservative approach. I willingly accept any principle that can be clearly supported by scripture. If it is not supported there, I don't support in my writings.

During January 2016, you can purchase the Kindle edition for $2.99 (free on Kindle Unlimited or for members of Amazon Prime). A paperback version is also available.
