The 70th anniversary of Israel's miraculous victory in the Six-Day War coincides with the creation of the first truly super-intelligent machine, or SIM. The disappearance of millions of people - children and Christians, by coincidence - in a world-wide series of earthquakes has set off a chain of events familiar to Bible scholars...but the timing is all off. Does the first SIM have anything to do with this?
A Commission From God
Andrew Cross, head of Cross Worldwide Marketing, is struck in a car crash and hovers near death. While his life hangs in the balance, he is brought to Heaven to meet with the Trinity and many of the saints and angels, where he and his company are given a commission: find out why so few people are going to Heaven when they die, and help correct that.

A Step Sideways:
The Universe and God in 12 Dimensions
In our newest book, our protagonist has been chosen by God to serve as His Prophet to the world, to explain that the universe described by science and the universe described by God are one and the same. In order to do that, God takes him through twelve dimensions of reality to answer a wide range of humanity's questions - and not one of humanity's discoveries contradicts God's reality. Prepare to have your mind expanded! (No real math, I promise!)
Her Name Is Alison
Originally published by Smashworks in 2012, this beautiful love story is a tremendous tale of "what if?" wish fulfillment, and the potential tragedy of living too much in the past. This has been our most successful novel over the years - it's a short read that we think you'll love, too.

Five separate first-person tales of fantastic adventures that slowly tie together into one diabolical threat that could destroy all of history! An amazing stylistic tour de force which unites the tales of the Wise Men visiting the birth of Christ, a medieval community "far from Kansas", a stranger on his horse in the Old West, some meddling prehistorics and their dog, and a space-faring future not so "far, far away", where a teenaged "podling" learns that his uncle is far more than he seems.
A 17-day road trip for three college buddies turns into a coming-of-age story, which then turns into a mystery as they must figure out what happened on Day 11, and decide what being a Christian really means.
Gordon spent 29 years as a middle & high school band director, and this 2006 novel came from those years in the trenches. This massive story pits the advances of technology against the Christian ethics and investigative powers of a group of high school students who are determined to get to the bottom of a mysteriously rapid improvement in a rival band's performance. This book is dedicated to my father, who always wanted to write a musical on this topic with me.
Selected Essays / Selected Stories
Here are two brand new collections of insightful posts from Act II Ministries over the past eighteen months from the previous incarnation of our site. Selected Essays is a superb collection to help you lead a friend to Christ - it starts with the short introductory essays about the need for a savior, and for Jesus in particular, and moves through the necessities for salvation and for the already saved Christian to solidify his or her sanctification. Selected Stories is a companion book of separate essay posts - some equally convicting, but many more personal, from the life of a Christian who wasn't always one.
