Local author holding book signing

Grand Forks author Larry Lovelaw is holding his first autographing of his book These Radical Children of Abraham, on Nov. 23 at Thimble Bookstore during midnight madness.

It’s an intriguing title and the front cover looks almost spooky, says Lovelaw.

Lovelaw explains the blood-red moon behind the scimitar represents Islam, the Menorah represents Judaism and the sword emanating from the Servant candle represents Christianity.

Lovelaw says it’s more about setting the record straight and bringing logic to bear on present day religious strife.

After factually examining the historical, spiritual and architectural roots of the beliefs of these three groups, showing the one common denominator, Larry goes on to proclaim liberty to the captives by asking the readers to examine the facts presented and to think for themselves.

His premise is that the real problem lies with multitudinous unseen enemies that pull strings behind the scenes, create much deception and cause all the fighting whether between nations, cultures, brothers or spouses.

It seems that he came to this conclusion after a supernatural confrontation with what he calls a manifested spirit of darkness that had caused the death of his son.

The foreword details how, after making a wrathful but rather foolhardy challenge to the murderer of his son, he was actually attacked by a manifested paranormal phenomenon. When, as Larry claims, by the grace of God, that spiritual entity was destroyed, he began to understand what was actually causing all the problems of the people of the world.

Over a period of years, many notes and numerous experiences, the book ‘These Radical Children of Abraham’ came together and was presented in a short form on a website.

Later Larry made some additions and submitted a manuscript to a publisher who immediately accepted it.

Larry praises God for that one encouragement, saying that everything else was a real struggle.

That struggle helped him bring the book together because he had to personally overcome before he could tell others how to overcome in like manner.

In the final third of the book, he delineates the way to keep oneself safe in the terrible days that are about to hit all mankind.
