In his work “Mere Christianity“, Clive Staples (C.S.) Lewis stated that,
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before), you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.
If you have a look through my ‘About‘ section, you’ll discover that I’m a Christian, an author and a journeyman. I’ve recently completed and published my short historical autobiography, A Maze of Miracles & Madness, as a Kindle eBook.
Throughout my years of tertiary study, my task has been to analyse and interpret a vast body of literature. Consequently, my writing styles and mannerisms have been influenced, honed, and personified by the greatest historians of Ancient Greece and Rome, influential theologians of the Early, High and Late Middle Ages, and contemporary scholars.
We all rely on other peoples contributions to our lives for our well being in one way or another.Michelle Swan
Through the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit, I’ve journeyed back and forth through the different paths I’ve wandered, investigated, come across, or fallen down.
This venture of reminiscing has taught me about the ever-present love, grace and guidance of Jesus Christ throughout each of my decisions, victories, and even my missteps.
This time of pause under COVID-19 has provided me time to return and reevaluate my writings, devote myself to regular prayer, and further retrace God’s guidance through the maze of my life.
I love to write, so by intertwining my life stories with relevant historical narratives, I’ve sought to illustrate how at the opportune times, God has transfused different characters, events, victories and disasters into our lives to guide us back to Himself.
Hallelujah, הַלְלוּ יָהּ
