June 19, 2022

Rise, Warrior Poets
Defector's Manifesto, Ch. 10. He is not one man, but the true spirit of all men. And to build the eternal kingdom, we need true men to be true.
March 16, 2022
Let Them See Your Face
Defector's Manifesto, Ch. 9. Some nights I lie awake and wonder what my life could have been. Had the soldiers never come, had they never found the gun in the walls, what might I be doing right now?
March 15, 2022
The Reckoning
Defector's Manifesto, Ch. 8. The river circles the ages. Outside my windows I see the water rising out of the ground, swelling towards us now. The reckoning is coming.
March 14, 2022
Space Race
Defector's Manifesto, Ch. 7. To conquer the present, rulers must perpetuate fear and chaos at every level of society.
March 07, 2022

March 04, 2022

March 04, 2022

Victim's Crown
Defector's Manifesto, Ch. 2. We were formed to order the chaos we encounter, to build, to make something out of nothing and truthfully declare it is good. I believe God intentionally made man in His own image, placing the spark and order of creation in our hearts. Every individual carries that fire. Thus, our nature connects us to a story of eternity that will always supersede government systems, cultures, and the common expectations of how man ought to live. Man ought to live as if he were created by God, not as if he were created to serve the age in which he was born.

The Eternal I
Defector's Manifesto, Ch. 1. None can have value outside of God’s image; all have value because of God’s image. The great conflict of our time can only be won by building the future upon this truth. All men and women bear the image of the Maker. Circumstances and decisions obscure our origins and draw us away from the ancient fire, but we bear the image until the end. Men do not need to be convinced or swayed. They simply need to be reminded of what is already true about them.

Intro to Defector's Manifesto
COMING SOON. Over the next few weeks I'll share the podcasts for my newest book. This book is a roaring cry for liberty that opens with a scene of two men talking around a campfire. The world has fallen into the hands of tyrants. Defectors are on the run. But there is still a spark of hope that spreads from town to town. Welcome to Defector's Manifesto.
