LIKE AN EAGLE
Biography/Nonfiction

Like An Eagle is a biographical account of my ten years in Mongolia with Eagle Television. Eagle TV was Mongolia’s first independent TV station after the fall of communism and the only local Christian TV station on the Asian continent, from the border of Eastern Europe to the Sea of Japan.

Eagle TV began as a unique partnership between a group of Mongolian democrats and a group of South Dakota Christian businessmen. My story picks up in 2002 when I was installed as Managing Director of the company.

Like An Eagle tells the dramatic story of how Mongolian powerbrokers and religious parties attempted to damage and shut down the TV station, and the trials we endured while we openly shared Christ through a unique ministry founded to share the Gospel of Jesus and advocate for freedom of speech, press, and conscience.

In "Like An Eagle" you'll learn how Eagle TV changed Mongolia, and how it changed my life.

In response to the growing threat to their beliefs, factions of the Royalist Social Movement, from the violent to the reformist, seek to restore the principles and former glory of the Great Generation.

High above Terra, connected to the planet by a system of tethers stretching from the surface to sixty-four thousand kilometers in space, the space station City of Heaven is home to more than a million citizens. 

Enter the Ar'chay Order, a radical sect of Royalism determined to force the world to bend its knee, with Ar'chaists assuming the Regency. In a single act they sever the tethers, killing nearly all the inhabitants and sending the city on a collision with Terra where millions more will surely die.

FAITH & FREEDOM
