What if your best and worst dream came to life?

Beyond what is humanly possible, Christian starts to change. He starts to have powers little boys dream of while reading comic books. Christian doesn’t realize he has those very powers for a reason. He’s being called to do something truly remarkable and out of this world. While he’s struggling with his very powers, his mind is raging with questions, never answered. In reality, he is not alone in this world. Strangers start coming to his aid, all trying to lead him to his true calling. Can Christian stand his ground and walk through the fires of Hell? Which side will he take?

As Christian stared in shock at the bullet spinning slowly before his eyes he remembered words he had read before. “…And in those days men shall seek to take their lives, but death shall flee from them.”
 

Excerpt
ďI have good within and yet I have evil within as well. Iím like
a Yin-Yang, white and black and Iím split in the center. The white
represents the good within me. The black represents the evil
within me. Inside my very soul a battle rages. Who wins? Will the
good inside me overcome the evil? Or like my dreams will the evil win?Ē


Professional Reviews

Angela A. | Gather review of Christian's Calling
Stephanie Gibbs knows how to tell a spellbinding story. As her novel Christianís Calling (2009, PublishAmerica) opens, 38-year-old John Christian is stuck in a traffic jam, and reflecting on his tribulations. His most recent girlfriend absconded with most of his worldly possessions, but her theft and betrayal are only the most recent in Johnís lifetime of grief and disappointment. When he witnesses a man beating his girlfriend in an adjacent car, John is enraged and knows he has to do something about it.
In the process, John discovers an unnerving truth about himself: heís much, much stronger than he ever imagined, almost like a comic book superhero. John is frightened by his newfound powers. He is subsequently torn between good and evil impulses, as he narrates in the following excerpt:
ďI have good within and yet I have evil within as well. Iím like
a Yin-Yang, white and black and Iím split in the center. The white
represents the good within me. The black represents the evil
within me. Inside my very soul a battle rages. Who wins? Will the
good inside me overcome the evil? Or like my dreams will the evil win?Ē
Gibbs blends heart-pounding action with Johnís introspection. Through the novel, she hints at Christian imagery of the end of the world. Is John losing his mind? Or could he possibly be marked for an important purpose in the world? Gibbs keeps the reader guessing as Johnís soul is in turmoil, torn between the Savior he accepted as a child and the devil.
