Coptic Martyr

The Coptic Martyr of Cairo

The latest international thriller from best-selling author Martin Roth

Four Americans in Egypt on an archaeological dig. In the blistering summer heat they are fighting amongst themselves. Then they unearth a body. It is an old priest who has been murdered.

The gruesome discovery sets in train a sequence of events that leads to a deadly Islamist attack on the ancient church where the Americans are working.

The leader of the expedition, Professor Rafa Harel, must decide whether to withdraw his fractious team or continue on a mission to unveil a controversial series of wall paintings, knowing that these images have the power to spark even greater violence.

Meanwhile, watching over all of them is a dreamy young Egyptian Christian named Amir. His only quest in life is to become a martyr...

More New Kids on the Blog

Some more interesting blogs I’ve recently discovered (most no longer online):

Notes in the Key of Life is subtitled “One Woman’s Random Thoughts on the Journey”, and is the online journal of Cindy Swanson, news director of an Illinois radio station and devoted family woman. It’s a lovely blog, positive and personal and very well-written.

I was fascinated to read there an interview with Jeri Massi, author of the book Valkyries. Apparently, Jeri placed the novel on her website and it was discovered there by a publisher. So there’s hope for budding novelists like me.

By the way, Jeri has her own provocative blog, Blog on the Lillypad, which she describes as: “A critique of Christianity, Christian fiction, Right wing Christian pretension (from an insider), everyday life, and big fat whopping adventures in time and space. Woo Hoo!”

Here’s an excerpt:

Just saw another reference on the FFF [Fighting Fundamentalist Forum] to my "wicked blog". Always nice to know that I frighten some of these grossly incompetent, angry, aggressive IFB-KJVO [Independent Fundamental Baptist – King James Version Only] preachers enough to cause them to peruse my blog. They're my best advertising. They get hot and bothered and say something about my blog, and then everybody trots over here to see the latest thing I've posted.

Lollardy is the long-established (that is, since early 2002) blog of Daniel Stoddart. In an email to me, he says, “I'm an Anglican land surveyor. The only other one of those I've heard of was George Washington.”

It’s thanks to Daniel’s blog that I learned of the liquor-filled chocolate Advent calendar.

Certus Veritas – “Commentary and Opinion on Christianity, Politics, and Religion in the Public Square” - has kindly linked to me, and I’m happy to return the favour. The blog is written by Eric, who does not give his surname or any biographical data. But in one posting he mentions that he’s a member of the Fellowship of Christian Magicians. Now that would be something interesting to blog about.
