Flashpoint: Book One of the Underground
LAFAYETTE, Indiana, Feb. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christian science fiction and cyberpunk are viewed with suspicion by many believers, as traditionally, these genres have been dominated by atheism. Christian readers who enjoy the action and futuristic concepts in sci-fi but not the anti-Christian worldview have had few or no viable alternatives. Until now. The release of "Flashpoint: Book One of the Underground" by author Frank Creed is leveling the playing field.
Published by The Writers Café Press, "Flashpoint" was the 2006 winner of best science fiction chapter book at the world's largest sci-fi/ fantasy online community, Elfwood.com and the 2007 Christian Fiction Review Impress award for the best book toured.
"If you're one of the many Christian science fiction fans who've despaired upon finding good sci-fi with a distinctly Christian worldview, weep no more. Frank Creed has delivered a novel that will appeal to teenagers and adults alike and that will please even the most ardent technophile." --Karen McSpadden, Christian Fiction Review. Award-winning author M.L. Tyndall calls Creed "one of a new generation of spiritual warriors" for daring to tread the uncharted waters of Christian sci-fi. Pastor Jonathan O'Hearn, Christian Church, Oklahoma states "Frank's writing is a colossal step towards delivering the Gospel to a new generation and an inspiration to future writers that Science Fiction and God are not mutually exclusive.
"Set in Chicago 2036: Flashpoint is the story of an alternative future where patriotism meets tyranny, the Patriot Act waxes Stalin-esque and the violence of terrorism has united the world. Fundamentalist terrorists are the One State's only threat: including Bible-believing Christians. When peacekeepers make a home-church bust in the Chicago Metroplex, only two people evade capture. The siblings turn to the 'Body of Christ Underground' where they adopt street-names, undergo spiritual and technological reformation, and slip between the cracks of Chicago. Their mission: to save believers before they're rehabbed and brainwashed, or worse, by the One State Neros.
'Calamity Kid and e-girl fearlessly walk the valley of death, because He's with them. But they'll need every molecule of their re-formed faith to face down peacekeepers, gangers, One-State Neros, and fallen- angels, in America's dark Post-Modern Humanist age.'
