About the Book:

Explore the Beatitudes and Woes of the Bible through the stories of thirteen Christian authors in this unique anthology.

Courage in the face of suffering, persecution, unexpected loss, self-sacrifice, joy in spite of circumstances, tears suppressed and expressed, love from the heart, kindness shown to friends and strangers, a monster slain, an alien plague, high adventure, a comedic hero finally taking a stand, a lost love found, and much more are featured in these tales.

Each story ends by quoting Jesus–from either one of the nine “blessed are” statements in Matthew chapter five or one of the four “woe to” sayings in Luke six.


About Rebekah’s story, The Path of Mercy:

Set in the world of The Undoing Chronicles.
Venture beyond the boundaries of the Kashtophim Empire, and come face to face with the Rishka.

Rillaph has lost nearly everything once before–her parents, her noble rank, her inheritance… her betrothed. Everything except her younger brother, Taphak. But now, the Order of the Mountain Gods wants them both. The Elevated One demands Rillaph as his concubine, and Taphak as a sacrifice to the gods.

Just as Rillaph’s noble status is restored in the worst possible way, she is reunited with her former betrothed, and finds an ally she never dared hope for. He helps her and Taphak seek refuge with the Rishka. The Rishka are renowned smugglers, because their very survival hinges on their ability to hide themselves. But just when when she thinks they might be safe, Rillaph finds herself forced into the position of betrayer.

Who will she save? The Rishka, or the man she loved?
