BeschreibungEighty years after a smallpox pandemic decimated the global population, Jacen Chester finds himself the sole survivor of his tiny community, just outside the ruins of Philadelphia. Out of the ashes of the old civilization he determines to build a new one.
The young man encounters Hakim, a wanderer with a mysterious past, who begins to teach him the arts of self-defense, leadership, and the history of the recent global disaster. Together they gather a small group of people committed to Jacen's vision of the future.
The endeavor is threatened from within by Jacen's and Hakim's own sharp disagreements, and from without by ruthless groups having a decidedly different view of the future. The two men must grapple with philosophical differences regarding violence and religious tolerance in a world where the margin of survival doesn't permit mistakes. When catastrophe strikes the growing community, Jacen's leadership is put to the test.
PortraitChris Cobb's resume reads like a patchwork quilt. He's driven a forklift, worked as a technician doing board-level repair on digital circuitry, been a programmer-analyst, a data-center shift operator, taught high school science and mathematics, and been an Information Technology Director at a graduate school. Most of his career he's been a pastor.
He lives with his wife, Doris, in western Ohio, and is presently the teaching pastor at Bible Fellowship Church in Greenville, OH. They have three adult children, and two fine sons-in-law and daughter-in-law, all of whom are actively engaged in the arts at some level.
Chris received Jesus Christ as his Savior in 1974, and seeks to incorporate a biblically faithful worldview into everything he does, including his writing.
