Barre author Craig A. Comstock announces the release of ‘The Worst of Sinners: A Novel’
“Was the apostle Paul using hyperbole in calling himself the ‘worst of sinners” when writing to Timothy prior to his death? What does Paul tell us today about free will, repentance, grace, election, and forgiveness? How does God take away our hearts of stone and remove the veils from our eyes so that we can see the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ? Is there truly anyone beyond the reach of God’s amazing love? Is there anyone that God allows us to refuse to forgive? Can anyone who has turned their backs on Jesus be brought back to salvation?” These are some of the questions Craig A. Comstock explores in “The Worst of Sinners: A Novel” (published by WestBow Press, 2020).
This book presents a retelling of the story of Saul and his conversion outside the walls of Damascus. The tale asks readers this critical question, can one follow the royal law found in Scripture, ‘love your neighbor as yourself’ when your own heart is filled with anger, guilt and shame? In this book, you will follow Saul and his companions at the house on Straight Street during these three dramatic days that altered the course of all human history.
“We live in a very materialistic culture that is extremely polarized. In our resentments, fear, and isolation, we appear to have lost the ability to listen to those who have opinions and ideas that differ from our own,” Comstock said. “Whenever we turn on the news, we can see how many people have contracted Covid-19, and how many are dying. Fear of death can only be overcome through faith in Christ. Hope seems to be in limited supply these days for many people.
“The Worst of Sinners: A Novel” aims for people to see that throughout history, mankind has rebelled against God, but God has not and will not abandon them in their sin. “The Messiah has come, may we all see the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ,” Comstock added.
