Seed is inspirational fiction like nothing you’ve ever experienced. No bonnets. No Bibles. Lots of bullets. Across the Vegas wastes, you’ll encounter futuristic warriors and supernatural romance, face-paced swordfights slashing through the cutting realism of a dystopian tomorrow, and tanks smashing demons when it’s time to get nasty – your protagonist’s favorite mode.
Where, then, is the religious refreshment, the spiritual awakening, all the wholesome gooeyness we’ve come to expect from this genre? Buried deep in the literary layers, where they belong. In your face isn’t where tired tropes should be found. In Seed, the Gospels are on display only if you know where to look.
Come along for the ride, if you dare something different. Let inspiration be gruesome and gory and beautiful. Accept a religious invitation that’s an action-packed blast. Find meaning percolating in the undertones and washing across classic structure instead of drowning the plot. It’s an adventure true seekers won’t soon forget.
Joshua David is a retired law enforcement officer with an undergrad in economics and graduate work in American colonial religion. When he should have been working toward academic publishing and serious professorships, he was instead tinkering with apologetics, particularly working to combine classical idealism with Christian theology.
Seed was born of these efforts, a release valve for the monotony of composing a proper philosophical treatise. Why spend all productive time on what is essentially a 300-page algebra equation when a character like Jess is already out in the wastes working miracles and could so much more easily espouse a truth many accept and few can reconcile?
Joshua David resides in Prescott, AZ with his wife and two young sons. If there is a sliver of time not occupied by family, friends, and fictional characters, he can be found on a gun range, a jiu-jitsu mat, or under a bench press loaded with just slightly more weight than his elbows appreciate.
