they are back in the future they once knew, even closer to the end of the world than before. But Lasten-who they knew before as an old man-is now a young man and the land of Nid is populated as it had been in his youth … and led by a madman who believes his society is dying and, so, must be put out of its misery. In the course of trying to save the future-and discover why they have been summoned out of their own time-Marianne and Edward discover a whole new culture and race of men most people believed was only a legend until the Garretts burst through with irrefutable evidence that the legends are true. The world will never be same, but can it survive the change long enough to make it to the end of time itself?
All the Time in Our World
Two nervous west Texas teenagers on their first date are suddenly engulfed in a horrific thunderstorm and take shelter in an old barn. When the storm subsides, the barn is gone … and so is everything else, except their bicycles. They ride their bikes on a mysteriously well-maintained road in an otherwise barren land to an ancient castle whose single resident claims to already know them. Edward and Marianne have been whisked thousands of years into the future and their only hope of returning to their own world and time is to follow a mysterious traveler named Marcus and a hulking warrior named Daniel into a battle for the soul of all mankind. Over almost a year’s time and more than a thousand miles of travel, Edward and Marianne are trained “physically and mentally” to put together and lead the army that will fight the battle for the beginning of the end of the world. As Edward is taught to be a general and a sword-fighter and Marianne learns to use a bow and lead as well, they begin to learn that their greatest asset just may be each other.

The Woman Caught
Alexander “Opie” Gates was in New York City, helping a friend, when he met her. She was fun, attractive, and had a horrifying background. When she started attending the mission where Opie was helping out, he felt pretty good about his ability to emulate Jesus’s dealings with “the woman caught in adultery” and forgive her.
But then he began to fall for her. Suddenly, he wasn’t just trying to forgive some person on the periphery of his life, he was trying to forgive someone he wanted to fall in love with of sins he would have once thought unimaginable.
What would Jesus do? That’s easy to answer. What will Opie do? He’s not so sure about that.
