FOREST, Va., July 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Paul Nicholas, an amazing person who grew up in a small country church, a responsible husband, and a doting father to his three children, has completed his new book, "Seven Calls to Absalom": a purposeful narrative that combines fiction and the author's firsthand congregation experiences. The story unfolds the life of Absalom who grew up in a household that honors God and His kingdom. Not wanting to follow the footsteps of his father, Absalom turned his back from his faith and lived a life away from the presence of the Creator. Will the boy who has chosen to worship the material things in the world find his way back to the Lord?
Paul writes, "Luray, Virginia, is a beautiful town situated in Page Valley of the Shenandoah. It's home to Daniel and Annabelle Greenwood. For income, the couple own and manage a bed-and-breakfast business, handed down from Annabelle's father before the bed-and-breakfast industry was a thing.
"Daniel and Annabelle have four children. Three boys: Absalom, Noah, and Tommy. A little girl named Layla Belle who was in their lives for only a moment in time but made a huge impact for the Kingdom of God.
"Daniel also serves as minister to a small Presbyterian congregation that has roots in the basement of his home. One morning on Christmas day, the congregation experiences a miraculous healing from the Holy Spirit, which catapults growth and positive directions in serving the community of Luray for years to come.
"Absalom Greenwood catches a vision for serving the Lord early on in his life, following the patterns of his mom and dad. Serving in a ministry that's very entertaining, to say the least.
"At the age of eighteen, walking away from his faith, Absalom becomes a statistic, joining the 85% of his companions raised in Christian homes who never give the Bible or God a second thought. They work hard pursuing the American Dream and worshipping everything but the Lord.
"Many years later, when Annabelle is 77 years of age, she rises to her finest hour, calling out to her son, pleading for him to return to his faith. Will Absalom hear the call and make the decision to turn his life toward God?
"The story spans from the early 1960s all the way to 2009, with many interesting people to meet along the way. You may see yourself along the journey. So I ask that you examine your hearts and minds. Confirm your calling and election sure for Christ. He loves you!"
