Professor to Host Book Signing This WeekendSouthwestern Adventist University professor Glen Robinson will host a book signing this weekend at the Texas Adventist Book Center in Keene. The book signing is scheduled for Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The author of 13 books, Robinson specializes in Christian suspense novels. His two latest novels will be available for purchase at the event.
Robinson describes his book Infinity’s Reach, which launched on April 1, as the retelling of the classic allegory Pilgrim’s Progress. In contrast to the original, which was written in the 17th Century and describes the Christian life by telling of Pilgrim’s journey to the Celestial City, Infinity’s Reach tells of a teenager who wakes up in a dystopian America, challenged with the task of crossing a dangerous, war-torn landscape to join her father in Camp Zion.
“Most people today have only heard of Pilgrim’s Progress but haven’t read it,” says Robinson. “Putting the allegory into an exciting, dystopian context is intended to appeal to more young readers while sharing the original Christian message.”
This weekend also marks the launch of Robinson’s new Christian suspense trilogy. “The series started when I thought about the gods of the Old Testament and asked, why did men worship them and where did those gods go?” Robinson says.
The Champion is the first book in the series, and tells the story of a pastor who asks God to be used in a big way. An angel comes to him to tell Pastor Borden that God has agreed to honor his request. The young pastor discovers a war between good and evil that has been going on for thousands of years, a war that becomes very real to him and those around him.
In addition to his two new books, Robinson will be signing some of his other books that are available at Texas Adventist Book Center and other retailers, including his well-known end-time novel If Tomorrow Comes.
Texas Adventist Book Center is located at 201 S. Old Betsy Road in Keene.
