In John’s first book, A World Without Kings tells the fictional story of a young man’s journey to become a man and to find his heart. Over the past twenty years, there has been a growing interest among men in exploring the ‘deep waters’ of their own hearts as evidenced by the popularity of authors such as John Eldredge and Stu Weber. While these and similar books summon men to embrace their masculine identity and to reject a passivity that began with Adam, A World Without Kings presents this challenge in the language of the heart, a story. This book will speak to those men who’ve begun their own journey of the heart and usher them into a deeper level as they seek to live an authentic life. Though completed, this book is currently in editing.
