The Bored & the Cross

The Bored and the Cross is Gregory Matthews’s tale of triumph and tragedy, of loss and gain, of mistakes made and ones corrected.

Gregory, born of tragedy, is raised by a single father. He grew to be a rebellious teen, swearing he’ll never be like his dad, bent by a girlfriend’s pry of running off to Bible College. It results in him getting bored with it all and she a broken heart.

Gregory will decide to leave religion behind for what he thinks will be brighter skies in “The Big Apple.” He will in turn become what he despises, brokering what he hates.

He marries, for the wrong reasons, and that, too, ends in ruin. His wife will say, “Leave!” and he’s faced with the prospect of nowhere to go. It’s a life-altering experience. Something as simple as a walk around the block, to clear his head, will turn into a soul-cleansing voyage – a nine month trek from New York to LA for Gregory.

The journey has a flare of suspense and intrigue, for Gregory’s framed by a crooked Sheriff for a murder he didn’t commit and becomes a hunted man. The FBI want him, but the Sheriff is hell-bent on seeing Gregory dead.

War of the Heart

War of the Heart follows the amazing journey of a young, adventurous American, Jonathan Freed. Growing up in the Deep South under the hardships of the Great Depression, Jonathan experiences his share of turmoil and hard living, but across the sea, the sinister brew of Nazism lurks – threatening to embroil him and others in a dark conflict. Like many of the era, Jonathan hears the call of military service. His career spans two wars and eventually rewards him the distinction of being the youngest chief chaplain of the U.S. Army.

Join him on his thrilling account of the grim realities of war and combat and follow as he endeavors to walk with Christ. While on his journey, Jonathan begins to understand that man’s heart is an ally of the spirit, and the mind sides with that of the flesh. Both opponents are in constant conflict with each other; it’s a War of the Heart that none can escape.

Hear the Call

Hear the Call is the echoing cry of God’s heart. He whispers its spiritual message to many, but few recognize its significance or place of importance.

Nathaniel Irwin will, in time, come to understand His voice and the truth behind Christ’s words, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36)

The story begins in 1868 and originates in England. A trio of families long for a properous life in America, and with the combination of life savings, then set sail. That chance of a lifetime soon turns into a venturous nightmare. The seaward trip is a costly one for a third of the party won’t survive. Immigrants they are, and they are literally dumped off in Charleston on the East Coast. Although their provisions are now scarce, the Irwins and Cavendishs hear the humors of fortunes to be made in California and muster the courage to forge on. When their elderly horse dies near the town of Burnt Plain in Illinois all seems lost, but it’s just the beginning. Through the kind act of a stranger, they settle there. The children soon grow and that next generation seeks escape from their surroundings. Both families have one son and both seek a more rewarding life. Their plan is to migrate to Chicago, make a fortune with Locomotives. They do just that and become quite wealthy in the process.

Horatio Cavendish is in love with nothing more than his money and doesn’t marry, but Elias Irwin does. The business is eventually pasted on to the third generation and Elias’s son Jessup. Jessup expands the business and it develops into a Fortune 100 company. Upon Jessup’s retirement the fourth generation of Irwin grabs the helm. The main character is Jessup’s son, Nathaniel. He’s unlike any of his relatives; he’s an intellectual genius and builds the corporation to even loftier status. But … there’s something missing in Nathaniel life. He comes to realize he’s actually poor. He’s not married, nor has he had anything more than wealth. His struggle is indeed internal, and he will eventually forego it all for seclusion of a place called Lost Lake. A year spent there will quite literally change Nathaniel. In time, he will decide it’s best to go back home. It’s his assumption that the wealth is gone, but God is the provider.

In the end, Nathaniel gains far more – the ability to feed a staving world. God blesses a faithful heart always, but we must Hear the Call – that divine invitation.
