Heaven Falls

“Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?”–Thomas Daggett, The Prophecy (1995)

Michael the Warrior.  Lucifer the Fallen.

Gabriel the Watcher.  Raphael the Healer.

For eons, these princes of Heaven have done the Father’s will, His way.  From the war between the angels to the second coming of Christ, the Heaven Falls series is their stories in their words.

 From the Beginning.  Until the End.

  1. Hey Chris, I really enjoyed the book “Road To Hell”. Obviously it was just a novel, but there are many points you make that could be valid possibilities. I love how you captured the emotions of Satan. The scene where Satan makes God cry just really gets to me. It makes me want to be a better person and try to avoid causing the Father sadness. I understand that everything in the book was novelty and can’t be considered fact, but I did have one problem with the book. At the end when describing the creation of Earth you say 65 million years . . . Where did that come from? The Bible clearly states 7 days. I understand that people argue over what “days” refers to. But I’m pretty sure when Jesus rose three days later, it was really three days. It just seems like a conflicting view to me. Why did you choose to say 65 million years rather than the traditional Genesis 1:1 version, but with elaborated imagery for novelty purposes? Would like to hear your thoughts! Again, LOVED the book. Very thought provoking. I would love to see you do a book about the Garden of Eden, maybe Job, and Revelation, too.

    • Thank you so much for reading, Cody! I’m glad you enjoyed the book. I’m even happier you decided to hit me here with the question. It’s a good one.

      The ideas of creationism and evolution are often at odds–we have a book that says the world was created in 6 days and a body of science that suggests our planet is billions of years old. What I was trying to do was consider “days” more like milestones rather than 24 hour periods. That God would use something like evolution as the mechanism for his creation. This book covers the first 6 days of creation–when Lucifer is with the Father in darkness and sees light for the first, when he sees the Father’s face, that is Day 1. When Lucifer makes the Father cry, the waters are produced, it is Day 2. Sela forges Heaven and the Sisters come and bring it to life – Day 3. Emmanuel is made – Day 4. Day 5 is the darkest: the war comes, Heaven falls apart, everything the angels made is broken. The Father intervenes to make Earth and Man on His own. But God does things on his own time–I was trying to capture that.

      Come Hell or Highwater, the next book in the series, covers the time from the Garden of Eden to the Great Flood. Scheduled to be released at the end of the year.

      Thanks again!

      • Thank you so much for your reply Chris! That is an interesting concept. I didn’t even recognize that you used the days in that way. I, personally have a strong background in science. I am working my way for a Bachelor’s in Biological Science, and have already obtained an Associate in Science. My personal beliefs and the more I learn about science actually strengthens my belief in 6 day creation, and not macro-evolution. The more I learn in the fields of science, the more that becomes exposed about their fallacies and assumptions as well. I understand everyone has a different viewpoint, however, and I thank you for sharing yours. I hope that the book can attract an audience of non-believers for its intriguing story and lead more to Christ.

        I am looking forward to the new book! Two of my guy friends and myself were reading Road to Hell together, and I’m sure they will be looking forward to the next book in the series as well. Take care, and God bless.

      • I really appreciate your interest and your perspective. I’m thinking of starting a FB page for this series where we can discuss the themes of the book and I can keep you up to date on the latest news on the series. You interested?

  2. I hate to sound rude, but I really don’t understand this blog. You wrote a book with Christian themes, that personally made me want to connect to God, learn more about Him, and follow His ways more closely. Yet this blog website is full of profanity, and blog postings that stray far away from the Bibles teachings. I just don’t get it.

    • It’s not rude at all, Lee, and I appreciate your candor. More than that, I appreciate you reading the book–that it encouraged you to deepen your faith in God is something I’m terribly happy about. I couldn’t hope for more than that.

      That said, as an author, I am more than The Road to Hell and the Heaven Falls series. I explore the light that exists in the darker side of things. What you’re seeing on this blog is the darker side of me–the wicked side–the same side that wrote Lucifer, the side that explores the villains that stick with us, the side that has such a profane sense of humor.

      Again, I appreciate your reading of my novel and I am very happy you enjoyed it.

      • I agree, Chris. There are demons we face every day. We all have things we struggle with. But The LORD can help us overcome our wicked ways and our perverted actions and profanity. He has certainly helped me more than you could know. I am just concerned that a new believer would read your book and find this blog and be conflicted. A new believer who has not rooted himself completely in God might see the profanity and somewhat worldly (and admittedly funny) postings and they might cause him to stumble. As Christians I believe we should be a light in the midst of darkness. Rather than accepting the dark as part of us, we should always try to banish it. These are not my thoughts, but the Fathers, and I hope not to offend. But it was laid on my heart to say these things.

      • You know, Lee, I think your point is valid. Really valid. I am going to look into providing a more congruous experience for those readers of the Heaven Falls series. If I begin a Facebook group for this series, would you be willing to debate and discuss your ideas with me in that forum?

        And again, thank you so much for being willing to share your thoughts and perspective. It means a lot.

  3. I think the idea of starting a facebook page is a wonderful idea. Thank you for hearing me out and listening to my thoughts and opinions. There many things which the Bible is vague about, and that leaves a lot open for discussion. I don’t think we as humans are intended to know all of it, but I think it makes God happy to see us to wonder in amazement at His works, and ponder what He means by the things he mentioned in the Good Book. Such as topics of Hell, Satan, Tribulation, and Afterlife. A facebook page would be a great place to share our own ideas, and reflections on your novels. And who knows, maybe some of that discussion could inspire you more for another book in the Heaven Falls series, or another completely different book entirely.

    Also, I have been posting on here as both Cody and Lee, from slightly different perspectives. Thank you so much for being understanding, responsive, and pleasant to talk to. Please, email me with any information you have on the new facebook page. Hopefully these efforts can bring more lost souls to Christ.

    • You’re very welcome and, again, I appreciate your candor and willingness to share our opinions. I’m working on some ideas to better engage readers like you–I absolutely want to hear your thoughts on the book and the greater themes it explores. You should see something new in the next couple of weeks.

      Thanks again–i really appreciate it.

  4. I am sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved dog. I believe God granted humanity with friendly pets for companionship and a reminder of His unconditional love. Kind of interesting how God spelled backwards is dog? Because it is a reflection of His loyalty, companionship, and love. I hope your family is handling it okay too.

    Can’t wait to see the FB page and upcoming changes and modifications for the PR for Heaven Falls.

    • Thanks so much for the kind words. It was a rough weekend–as you can imagine. But I’m back at it. I’m pulling together some content for the FB page–questions, images, ideas. It should be up around August 11.

      And thank you again. Seriously.
