A fresh rethink and a new book

IMG_5023A lot has changed for me in my reflections and writing recently. My last blogging post was at the end of 2017. In the last twelve months I have been silent on this site, for a reason. I have been quietly writing a book in the last four years, and have found a publisher to partner with me in going to press. The publisher is Authentic media in Milton Keynes, and my book is on the End Times called ‘The Forerunner Cry’.

This has taken all my head space and creativity; I never knew the detail involved in a major publishing contract, in the editing stages, and in the sorting out of the background admin! It has been an exciting and daunting process, and this will become the public face of what I have been praying and thinking about for years.

I am convinced that we are living in extraordinary times, times spoken in the bible as ‘End Times’. Jesus and the apostles spoke prophetically about the generation that would be alive in the closing years before Jesus returns. My book is attempting to teach and encourage Christians to live well amidst ‘glory and shaking’ – amazing blessing and spiritual life and also great world turbulence and troubles.

Therefore this website is changing too. It is becoming both the landing page for interest in my book, and also some more focused and regular blogs about the End Times and christian discipleship in these days. I hope you will enjoy the changes and engage with my upcoming blogs. If there is any way I can stimulate and equip the church and ordinary christians in thinking clearly about the signs of the times, then I will be happy.

Thanks for reading.

God bless, William.

    Sounds amazing William …. Would love to hear about your thoughts at the Beacon sometime too .

  2. Hi William, after reading ‘about’ your book, and scouting around on Kindle for a good book on end-times, I decided to download yours, and read most of it Fri evening and yesterday and this morning. I think I will go back and read parts of it again. Unlike most books on End-times, you are non-dogmatic, but you are also passionate, you apply it practically, and it has encouraged me to keep going and intensify prayer. We have a prayer room in our house, but it has lapsed – I feel I want to get it going again! I may put a review onto Amazon as I want to encourage others to read it too. Thank you for all your hard work and I pray that lots of people will read it. I imbibed premillennial end-times in my youth, however I had been leaning towards what is known as a post-trib rapture in my recent reading. You don’t give extensive reading lists in your book, but I’m quite grateful actually that you don’t closely unpick it, as it does have the effect of making us forget who God is, and what his overarching purposes are. Well done, please be encouraged!
