A Conservative Christian's Guidebook for Living in Secular Times: (Now With Added Humor!)
Michael R Shannon turns his talent for humor and analysis to the everyday problems faced by Christians who don't happen to have a doctorate in theology or live in a monastery.
All too often our pastor's Sunday sermons prepare us to go toe–to–toe with a Pharisee in Jerusalem circa 32 AD, but leave us totally unprepared to counter the Wiccan in the checkout line or evaluate daily news coverage thru a Christian worldview.
So it's no wonder many Christians lose their faith each Sunday as they exit the church parking lot. That’s where Michael R Shannon can help.
He’s not boring, he’s not wishy–washy and he’s not a theologian. Shannon is simply a conservative Christian that’s not afraid to confront a culture that actively works to undermine faith and the family.
Shannon blows the whistle on leftists that attempt to recruit Jesus into liberal politics, reporters that moonlight as do–it–yourself theologians and he's ready with helpful pointers for Christian leaders who grow faint–hearted during secular confrontations.
You'll never look at politics or current events the same way after reading this thought–provoking, funny and wise book.
Plus, it's all yours for less than the price of a gallon of gas! (Assuming you live in NY or CA and are forced by your auto manufacturer to buy premium gasoline. And you don't have a Costco membership.)
GFP Columnist and Indian author Rattan Mann started writing The Prime Minister more than twenty years ago, in Sweden. The writing process continued in India and Norway, and he finished the first draft in Lapland, among the great Lap people of the high north.
New drafts were continued in Greece and Romania, and final touches applied in the United States and Sri Lanka.
The Prime Minister is allegorical in method, and transfigures its setting and fictional world in ways that can be associated with Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Toni Morrison.
If attempting to label it, magical realism would perhaps be the closest fit, with its use of violence, institutional madness, rumours changing into objective facts, ghosts and proletarian, revolutionary utopias.
The basic premise of the novel, as described by one reader: The Spirit of Man survives in spite of the lies, wild exaggerations, and excesses of politicians, social engineers and military High Commands.
The Prime Minister was nominated for Brit Writer's Award for Best Novel 2012.

The GFP and our volunteers wish to extend our deepest condolences to the injured and the families of the victims, and our thoughts go to the first-responders, and to the people of Boston.
These types of acts are deplorable whoever commits them and there is an increasing list of those who will do harm to others for whatever cause they’re trying to get attention for.
It doesn’t matter who did this, because the damage is done. It won’t matter if it was a home-grown white-guy terrorist or a branch of Al-Qaeda.
Because you (the American people) will seek those responsible, you will seek men with blood on their hands no matter what colour or race those hands belong to.
Seek them far and wide. Find them. Then do what you need to.
Update: As everyone now knows two suspected bombers have been stopped. One is dead, the other in custody. Now it's up to the courts.
