A new book from Christian author Chip Brogden rapidly achieved #1 Best Seller status on Amazon.com this week, simultaneously landing on the Amazon Best Seller list in the United Kingdom.
“Heart of Fire: A Story of Light, Life and Love” is a departure from Brogden’s usual writing genre and his first book for the Christian fiction market.
In what he calls a “parabolic novel,” Brogden tells the story of a second-century Egyptian grave robber who becomes a Christian and is personally mentored by John, the last living member of the original twelve disciples of Jesus.
“Heart of Fire is more than a novel or a book of spiritual teachings,” Brogden said. “I wrote this book to be a Biblically and historically accurate account of life as a Christian in the first and second century. It is a work of fiction but the book is based on real people, actual events, and timeless truths that are as applicable today as they were then.“
Heart of Fire was ranked #1 in Christian Classics and Allegories, #3 in Christian Historical Fiction, and #9 in Christian Fiction in the Amazon Kindle store when the book was released on September 9, 2014. On the same day, the book ranked #6 in Christian Historical Fiction in the Amazon.co.uk Kindle store.
Heart of Fire follows the spiritual journey of Wafik, the grave-robber-turned-Christian, as John teaches him (and the reader) the three essential truths of Light, Life and Love. Before his death, John entrusts Wafik with a treasure far greater than silver or gold, and gives the former thief a new purpose to fulfill – one that will change the course of Christianity for the next 2,000 years.
“There is a twist at the end,” Brogden promises. “It will give you a new appreciation for what the early Christians went through, and the vibrancy of their faith.”
Although the book is written from a Christian and Biblical perspective, Brogden explains that any seeker of spiritual truth will appreciate the simplicity of its message. “I wanted to tell a story,” Brogden said. “Not just for religious people, not just for Christians, but for all truth-seekers, whether they attend church or not.”
Chip Brogden is an international best-selling author of 14 books including Embrace the Cross, The Church in the Wilderness, and The Irresistible Kingdom. Brogden is the founder of TheSchoolOfChrist.Org, where his writings and teachings are distributed to more than 135 nations.
