About the author: 

John Pontius was born on May 12, 1952 in Moscow, Idaho to wonderful parents, Robert V. and Ann Pontius. He passed on peacefully in his home on December 10, 2012, after a lifetime of service to the Lord Jesus Christ. John had the sweet and humbling gift of writing with the pen of angels. The Lord gave him an ability uniquely his to express the gospel of Jesus Christ in a simple yet magnificently beautiful way. Throughout his life, he has touched many thousands of lives through his published books and firesides. John’s passions also included music, playing piano and organ masterfully since a young boy, oil painting, woodworking, conducting choral and orchestra (his favorite being the Mat-Su Alaska Community Messiah, which he did for many years), Christmas, and anything that captivated his mechanical and technical genius.

MY THOUGHTS:

WE THREE KINGS by John John Pontius is an interesting Christian Fiction/Latter Day Saints/History. A compelling, thought-provoking tale of the story of the Three Kings from the Latter Day Saints point of view. Well written, with interesting and engaging characters. The storyline, in my opinion was plausible. Light reading and one which could be read over again. I enjoyed the relationship between the characters on their journey to see the signs of the Savior’s birth. A different but interesting take on the story of the Three Wise Men. Not just a Christmas- time story. It will have you searching out your Bible to see if the details match. As I said earlier, very thought-provoking.

GUEST POST

Author J.R. Holbrook wanted to remind readers everywhere of some of the changes during the early 20th century, taking them back to see the lives of past generations. “Next O&W Train from Tennessee” is the result, a work of introspection and retrospection, a remembrance of the past for the generation of today, and tomorrow.

Holbrook chronicles the past and how things once were, he reminisces on the good that was, but his nostalgia is tempered with the realization that change is so much better, for with it comes progress and improvement, which makes being a witness to these transformations all the more important. His story follows the lives of those who would come to see and witness society come into its own, as well as their family and their children, making this work a multi-generational saga, a story of passing the torch to future generations, while looking back at yesteryear with appreciation.

“It is important to today, because it shows us that good things do take place if society just follows a path that it should,” Holbrook explains.

“Next O&W Train from Tennessee” has won a 2012 USA Best Book Award, a 2013 San Francisco Book Award honorable mention, and will be in the New England book festival awards coming in January 2014.

About the Book:

 

WHERE WERE YOU THE DAY KENNEDY WAS SAVED?

On the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination comes a new edition of the extraordinary time-travel thriller first published in 2003, now extensively revised and re-edited, and with a new Afterword from the authors.

On November 22, 1963, just hours after President Kennedy’s assassination, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as President aboard Air Force One using JFK’s own Bible. Immediately afterward, the Bible disappeared. It has never been recovered. Today, its value would be beyond price.

In the year 2000, actress Cady Cuyler is recruited to return to 1963 for this Bible—while also discovering why her father disappeared in the same city, on the same tragic day. Finding frightening links between them will lead Cady to a far more perilous mission: to somehow prevent the President’s murder, with one unlikely ally: an ex-Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald.

 

Forward to Camelot: 50th Anniversary Edition brings together an unlikely trio: a gallant president, the young patriot who risks his own life to save him, and the woman who knows their future, who is desperate to save them both.

 

History CAN be altered …
