If you take a look at the life of Jesus, you see that he called his disciples to follow him – on a physical journey, not just a spiritual one.
Hundreds of books talk about our faith walk as a journey. But few delve into the subject of how a physical journey can reinvent and revitalize our spiritual journey with God.
Kingdom Journeys is about the journeys we all take, presented in a series of “initiation steps” by disciples who are taking serious the call to leave everything and simply “go.”
This book is an exploration of an ancient spiritual discipline we must recover — if we’re going to truly follow Jesus.

Having been blessed with a rich, full life, I must with all due humility confess that very little moves me anymore. I’ve seen and experienced the self-sacrifice and beauty that only the deepest of loves can bestow. I have been poisoned and hardened by man’s inhumanity to man.
Having said that, imagine my soul-stirring surprise when my friend Danny Cole sent me, almost apologetically, the first chapter of what became this book, seeking my opinion.
The thing was, you see, Danny Cole had never before written anything in the way of books, short stories, poetry, etc. But he had something he needed to express and about halfway through his twenty-second year of sobriety he felt the time had come to express it.
Not that he isn’t a creative artist. Anyone who has ever seen the photographs of his loving tribute to his daughter Gloria, named Gloria Gardens, that he designed and constructed stone by stone in his back yard couldn’t help but realize that. Anyone who has ever seen his photography would also realize his artistic talent.
What follows here is true artistry as well… it is a story of depravity, deprivation and cruelty… a story of angels with razor wire halos. It is a story of guts, determination, learning the hard way, the law of the jungle and human kindness even in the vilest of circumstances.
It is the story of a life that never stood a chance…except for the guy that lived it: G. Daniel Cole and the merciful God that was watching over him.
Whether you are a troubled soul struggling with tragedies that appear insurmountable, or one privileged to say “there but for the grace of God go I”…. from start to finish this story will move you to the very depths of your Being. That every minute of it was lived by the man who put these words to paper only adds to its deep and eternal message.
With an abiding sense of privilege to have witnessed its birth, I now invite you to read Hell’s Highway….. a story that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Some years ago I wrote a series of stories. I wrote them without thinking about publishing them, much less to share this set of stories with so many people; I only experienced that with my closest friends and some relatives.
Little by little those stories were increasing, not only in number but also concerning the amount of personal feelings and creative and fancy options that were able to get out of my own heart. Then a Pastor from the Dominican Republic, who placed on me his confidence, prayers and support, encouraged me to continue writing them, with the fact that they could be good to help others.
My life was full of sadness. I could see people everywhere receiving apparently undeserved miracles, but my miracle seemed to be completely impossible, without understanding that a miracle was also happening to me. The sort of facts that I was waiting for, events of the past thought to be dead that could revive again in the present, never really happened, but outstanding things did, so I could change my life and see many other good things.
Then, one day I gathered all those stories into a book which I entitled “The Lighthouse of Asaph”, because I like lighthouses a lot, and the name of Asaph due to a man of the Bible who was sad and discouraged. That biblical name had been engraved on my mind when one night one of the young people of my church came to visit me accompanied by others. He wanted to encourage me spiritually and used an illustration based on Asaph. I used to visit lighthouses of Cuba and made reports for pleasure; and as the lighthouses are generally associated with the guide of Jesus for us, I made the decision to use that allegory.
Every year, when arriving the terrible and threatening hurricanes of the Caribbean, I lose sleep and the happiness, fearing that the strong winds could pull up the trees that my father planted almost forty years ago; some of them are already rootless, but there are still many in foot and this fact is one of the best memories that I have of him. Many times my mother and I were praying next to the door while the wind blew irresistibly outdoors. When I think of something like that, I also imagine that our faith can be considered as trees which are looked after by other people, new ones can be planted as renovated reasons and good actions and ideals to be fed, comparable with lovely kept seeds of those old demolished trees. A new way to rescue the faith from the mean of the pain that exists around us may be thought as well.
Many times my memories and thoughts transformed into dry leaves, then they were gathered as ashes, but one day, miraculously, all those ideals began to hold testimonies, varied texts and memories that could be good for others to begin again. It was not a simply personal game of learning how to use words but of reviving myself when using them.

You do not know a person until you know their story. We each have a story and it is filled with both factual details and personal details. I believe the amount we are willing to reveal to another is in direct proportion to the amount they are able to love us. You cannot love what you do not know.
When a group of people get together, one of the quickest and easiest ways to get to know one another is through the use of questions that prompt us to tell our story. That is the purpose of this book. The material is divided into three sections. New small groups might want to start near the front of the book with questions that are easier to answer.

Perhaps once in every generation a historic novel appears which is to powerful, so totally gripping, that it becomes universally acclaimed as a classic. The Mantle is destined to be such a book. The reader will be completely absorbed in this sweeping saga of one fearless man facing a decaying nation, a sadistic queen and a totally sensual religion.
In this brutal, yet magnificent, story—set in the stark landscape of ancient Israel—William Stephens vividly portrays the heroic adventures of Elijah. All alone this rough-hewn prophet confronts Queen Jezebel in her malicious scheme to supplant the worship of Jehovah with the sensuous fertility cult of Baal. All alone God’s servant, Elijah, turns the tide of Jewish history.
Elijah . . . Jezebel . . . Ahab—names charged with electric emotion! Here the electric charge is transformed into throbbing, explosive reality—names become flesh and blood people—as the reader lives with them in the terrible presence of frenzied, demonic priests and enslaved masochistic devotees of Baal.
The Mantle has been translated into five other languages. This book has been published also under the titles Elijah and Prophet of Fire.
