Sin, Salvation and Shadowmancer
The bestseller Shadowmancer stormed the literary world, rocketing to top sales. Who could have predicted that a country vicar would have such a hit on his hands? But that's only one chapter in the amazing, faith-sustained life of G. P. Taylor. Kicked out of school for trying to set fire to a teacher's desk, Graham Taylor's future looked bleak. He became a roadie for a punk-rock band and launched into a life of nightclubs and drugs. It appeared he would live hard and die young ... but God had a different plot in mind. In one awe-filled moment, Taylor heard God telling him to go home to Yorkshire. There he found a job and his future wife waiting, just as God had promised. Before his ordination, though, Taylor panicked, joining the police force instead. Like Jonah, he had to learn that hiding from the Lord's will is impossible. How did Taylor become a vicar in a part of England filled with tales of smugglers and storms at sea? How did he write Shadowmancer and his other runaway bestsellers to counteract the growing occult presence in so much of today's fiction? How did he find hope and healing when a near-fatal heart condition almost ended it all? This story is filled with unpredictable twists and revelations. And like Taylor's Christ-inspired novels, it's a tale you won't be able to put down.
