Daniel and the Triune Quest Blog Tour and Giveaway

 Head on over to Wednesday’s Blog Tour site to see the secret word and read Christianity and Mythology: A Reprise

Those who were around for the release of my first book,  Daniel and the Sun Sword, will remember that I wrote about the subject of Christianity and Mythology then. I decided to expand on this topic for the release of the sequel in hopes to further explore the traces of Christianity sprinkled throughout worldwide mythologies.

Speculative Fiction begins by presuming the basics of a Christian worldview and then asking “What if?“. One of the central What if’s of Daniel and the Triune Quest, and the Sons and Daughters series as a whole, has to do with the origin of worldwide mythologies: What if every culture’s myths grew out of man’s fallen memory of the one true God, his plan for redemption, and the rebellion of dark angels? Wouldn’t there be traces of truth and the thread of redemption in those ancient stories?

Christian Fiction Review by Peter Younghusband

5.0 out of 5 stars (Amazon)
Better Than Its Predecessor. Takes This Series To The Next Level. You Won’t Be Disappointed.
on September 15, 2017

Every author and every reader anticipate that a sequel will be just as good or better than the previous….Well, I can say that this is a better story than its predecessor (Daniel and the Sun Sword)….

Lumbatis has shown more of the biblical aspects of who God is, the Trinity, and the Gospel message….

The account where Daniel meets Jesus is powerful but gentle and bypasses the head and ministers straight to the heart….

I know Lumbatis researched the mythology and culture….[and] translated this research into the plot and setting of the novel very well. It is great world building….Makes it very credible and real.

 Daniel and the Triune Quest is a blast—a breathtaking thrill ride!

A blast—a breathtaking thrill ride! Tantalizing prose, and…deliciously well-written. I fell head-over-heels for the witty, sarcastic dialogue. Daniel and Ben’s adventures are action-adventure spelled out, along with a hefty dose of drama, comedy, and memorable characters.

The action-packed narrative undoubtedly has the power to lure kids away from video games, and the spiritual messages are core, buoyed by dazzling anime-like visuals presented through…clear-cut learning arcs for the two boys.

Parents…should jump at this one and bookmark Nathan Lumbatis for future reference.

Wow! My husband and I couldn’t put this book down. It sure got our hearts pumping! Exciting, surprising, inspiring — but also arresting. It made me stop and think about the realities of God’s purpose for our lives, the very real “battles” we face, and His power & strength available to us in the midst of it all. Rich imagery. So good!

Let the tour commence!

Is There a Personal God?

Daniel and the Triune Quest takes place mostly in a rural Indian town steeped in Hinduism. If posed with the question of whether or not there is a personal god, interested and invested in the daily lives of his/her worshipers, and loving those followers with an unconditional love, a typical Hindu will likely answer with a resounding “No.”

Hinduism is like a complicated tangle of multiverses with good and evil being ambiguous, gods and goddesses having (at least) dual personalities, three versions for every myth, and a dreadful uncertainty at its core in the form of the karmic circle.

~  The secret word is “MUST” ~

Part of Daniel and Ben’s mission while in India is to share about their personal experiences with the Three–the Father, the Spirit, and the Son. Their testimony is foreign to their new Indian friends, but the Truth of a personal, loving God resonates within them.

Most people don’t have earth-shaking spiritual experiences like Daniel and Ben which shatters their spiritual doubt. But, the yearning in all of our hearts for a deeply personal relationship with God is evidence that there is an object of that yearning in existence. C.S. Lewis sums it up best when he says:

 

“Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water.”

To this we could add:

Mankind desires intimacy with Divinity: well, there is such a thing as a Personal God.

Thanksgiving

I’m thankful for many things in my life: Jesus, my family, friends, career, etc. But most of all (and more specifically) I’m thankful that instead of simply saving me from death and judgment, God also granted me the right to be a literal Son of God—a coheir with Christ.

“And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” Says the Lord Almighty.

What are you thankful for?

 Character Spotlight: The Enemy—What Did He Hope To Gain?

∞I would love this post to result in discussion, so please comment.∞

I’ve always been intrigued as to what the Enemy hoped to gain by rebelling against God. There are a stream of questions that pop into my mind when I consider this.

Like us, were the angels limited in their ability to understand God’s omnipotence?

Did the Enemy truly believe he could supplant God?

Did he believe there would be no penalty for rebelling?

Did he think he could hide his pride from God’s omniscience?

Is he much more powerful than I think, and trusted he could overthrow the Most High by combining his power with that of a host of lesser angels?

Or, did he hope that God would simply abandon this world so that he could become its god?

I am exploring this throughout the Sons and Daughters series as a whole. Of course, I DON’T PRETEND TO WRITE DOCTRINE, so please no backlash. What the Enemy thought is only briefly explored in scripture, and so we are left to engage in conjecture.

Personally, I think rebellion is only logical if the Enemy truly believes he had something to gain. But, I doubt he thought he could overthrow God. With no hope of victory in the sense of “ousting” God from his place in Heaven, that leads me toward the abandonment theory: “I’ll make mankind in my own image and God will move on, leaving me to rule the earth in his place.”

I guess the Enemy didn’t realize how invested in us God is.

What are your thoughts?

Literary Losers: DTQ Edition

Here’s a bit of ridiculousness for the kids.

That’s right, folks. It’s the next installment of Literary Losers, where I interview a villain from DTQ.  The audio malfunctioned during recording, but we made do as best as we could. Enjoy!


Why Do People Change?

Why do people change for the better? And how? What makes them stop, realize they’ve done something mean, selfish, or insensitive, and decide to do something different? Two things: personal loss, which stinks; and love, which is both wonderful and terrifying. Personal loss, whether something simple like being grounded, or something worse, like losing a job or a friend, can lead a person to recognize mistakes. It naturally makes a person evaluate whether or not they did something wrong to make their life so unpleasant. It is therefore for their benefit to change.

Love—love is a different story. It’s dreadful to see someone you truly love suffer. So, at times, you might change in small ways for their benefit… to make them feel better even when doing so is a problem for you. For example, you might change how you say, do, or think something so the feelings of the person you love are spared. But sometimes love is so strong that we might be willing to put someone or something ahead of ourselves entirely. You might give your time, material possessions, energy, comfort, even your life, for the sake of the one you love.

It was with these thoughts in mind that I sent Daniel and Ben on their next quest. How would they have changed roughly eight months after their initial life-altering adventure? What choices would Daniel’s devotion to the Father lead him to make, and how would this affect Ben’s own spiritual growth?  And what would their friendships with each other, Raylin, and Gabriela make them willing to do? Not to mention, what sort of poor choices would two teenage boys make that would naturally lead to some soul searching? They say you should get your heroes stuck up in trees and then throw stones at them. When both love for others and good old-fashioned teenage mistakes are in the mix, there were no shortages of trees, and I happened to find one really big stone.

I hope you enjoy the story and that it makes you reflect on the nature of the greatest Act of Love in history.

Praise for Sons and Daughters Series

Christian Fiction Review by Peter Younghusband

5.0 out of 5 stars (Amazon)
Better Than Its Predecessor. Takes This Series To The Next Level. You Won’t Be Disappointed.
on September 15, 2017

Every author and every reader anticipate that a sequel will be just as good or better than the previous….Well, I can say that this is a better story than its predecessor (Daniel and the Sun Sword)….

Lumbatis has shown more of the biblical aspects of who God is, the Trinity, and the Gospel message….

The account where Daniel meets Jesus is powerful but gentle and bypasses the head and ministers straight to the heart….

I know Lumbatis researched the mythology and culture….[and] translated this research into the plot and setting of the novel very well. It is great world building….Makes it very credible and real.

 5.0 out of 5 stars (Reader’s Favorite)

 Daniel and the Triune Quest is a blast—a breathtaking thrill ride!

A blast—a breathtaking thrill ride! Tantalizing prose, and…deliciously well-written. I fell head-over-heels for the witty, sarcastic dialogue. Daniel and Ben’s adventures are action-adventure spelled out, along with a hefty dose of drama, comedy, and memorable characters.

The action-packed narrative undoubtedly has the power to lure kids away from video games, and the spiritual messages are core, buoyed by dazzling anime-like visuals presented through…clear-cut learning arcs for the two boys.

Parents…should jump at this one and bookmark Nathan Lumbatis for future reference.

Wow! My husband and I couldn’t put this book down. It sure got our hearts pumping! Exciting, surprising, inspiring — but also arresting. It made me stop and think about the realities of God’s purpose for our lives, the very real “battles” we face, and His power & strength available to us in the midst of it all. Rich imagery. So good!

DTQ Release Party is Here!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the release party today. Just in the way of preparation, I’m re-posting the Literary Losers video from the Daniel and the Sun Sword release event. It’ll get everyone warmed up for the next installment today around 2:00.


Character Spotlight: Daniel

In Daniel and the Triune Quest, Daniel’s pride and lack of empathy causes problems in his relationship with Ben. As in any relationship, healing that breach requires a great deal of humility and communication.

Have pride and self-centeredness wreaked havoc on your relationships?

Is God calling you to apologize in humility to those you’ve hurt so that the relationship can be healed?

 Only two days left until the DTQ release party. Hope to see you all there! In the meantime, here’s a quick word from Hurricane Nate:


Character Spotlight: Ben

In Daniel and the Triune Quest, Ben finds that bitterness and anger isolate him from his friends when he needs them the most. It’s only when he is willing to let go of his resentments that he is able to receive help and fulfill his destiny.

 

Have you allowed resentment to isolate you from God and others?

Are you willing to forgive so you can grow closer to God and accomplish His purpose in your life?

Character Spotlight: Shakti

In Daniel and the Triune Quest, a new villain takes the stage. Shakti, the self-styled goddess of pestilence, is on a mission from the Enemy, and one thing she’s good at is using fear to manipulate people into her control.

What happens when fear controls us?

We automatically forget the promises of our Heavenly Father and intense confusion sets in. And confusion ripens us for deception. Daniel and Ben aren’t defenseless, however, and learn how to turn their eyes away from the Enemy and his plans, and to focus on God and his power even in the midst of terror. Once fixed on this, fear and deception melt away, and the way of salvation is clear.

Does the Enemy frequently use fear against you?

How can you fix your attention on God and his promises?

Daniel and the Sun Sword Review

Peter Younghusband regularly reviews Christian books at the Christian Fiction Review. Since D&SS debuted, I’ve wanted him to do a review, but he was too swamped. Finally, he was able to not only review it, but also Daniel and the Triune Quest! His DTQ review will be posted hopefully in conjunction with the book’s release. But, while you’re waiting, find a brief excerpt from his review below, as well as a link to the whole post.

Additionally, D&SS peaked on Amazon (probably thanks to Peter), and was in the Top 100 for one of its categories!

The Guru’s Review: 

The author asked me to review this novel in 2015 when it was about to be released but I was unable to due to a long list of author requested reviews. I have been able to now as he requested a review of the next novel in the series about to be released over the next few weeks.

Now that I have read this debut novel, I realise what I have missed. This is a wild ride for a debut novel in this genre. Lumbatis writes as one who is a seasoned novelist. It is very hard to distinguish that this is his debut. On all the infrastructure that makes up a novel, a tick can be applied. The pace never slows down, the action never stops, the characters are well developed. Worldbuilding provides a solid foundation upon which everything rests. This is developed well and believable. The supernatural elements are based firmly in Biblical foundations. They are also rooted in the mythology of the geographical location and culture depicted. This is not surprising seeing that Lumbatis is writing from a Christian/Biblical worldview.

In relation to the supernatural elements, I loved Lumbatis’s take on the Gospel message. The same for those of angels and demons and their various forms and names. Using poetic licence that includes artifacts that are supernaturally empowered by God to assist in defeating the power’s of darkness, does not detract from the Gospel message or compromise its tenets. To me, this shows Lumbatis’s motive to adhere to his faith and belief in the Bible and its doctrines.

DTQ Updates

We are still waiting for the proof copy from the printer to ensure everything is formatted correctly. Once we get that, then a solid release date will be posted!

The book trailer, however, is finished. I’ll be posting that as soon as the book is available for pre-order!

Here are a few screenshots to whet your appetite.
