The Pebble and the Tower
Xulon Press, 2007 - 284 pages
Follow the pebble's pilgrimage during its adventurous travels from Labrador's North Atlantic shore to reach the elusive tower, which certainly holds the answer to every question it possesses! Despite the cynical Buhrstone's belief that all stones should stay where they are, the pebble refuses to accept that as truth. The pebble faces ridiculing judgment from its peers and despite its own inability to move independently, finds itself launched on its way! Follow the pebble as it experiences difficulties, sorrow, pain, danger, and a myriad of emotional highs and lows as it struggles to find the truth. This novel takes us on an allegorical journey through life, and will bring us all to our knees before a righteous and just Creator. This book is sure to help the reader find answers to many of life's questions, and the peace they desire, and the truth of God's Love shown through all creation. About The Author David J. Scott is an up and coming author dedicated to the advancement of the cause of Christ. He struggled through life, veered outside of God's will, and has stated that because of the dedication of his parents and their willingness to pray for him on a daily basis he has always turned back to God and rediscovered the path God has chosen for him. He is a committed Christian, husband, and father. In school, he majored in English, and when asked why he chose to write this book, he answered, "I want to help others see the value in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to draw people to the saving grace of the cross and into a deeper relationship with God. Every experience we encounter, be it good, bad, even every day activities will mold and shape us and definitely influences our life choices."

Page 12 - And the Lord said, Behold there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon, a rock : and it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a cleft of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by : and I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts; but my face shall not be seen.
Page 238 - PRAISE ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens : praise him in the heights. Praise ye him, all his angels : praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon : praise him, all ye stars of light.
Page 277 - That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Page 238 - Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps; fire, and hail; snow, and vapours ; stormy wind fulfilling his word ; mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars; beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl ; kings of the earth, and all people ; princes, and all judges of the earth; both young men, and maidens; old men, and children; let them praise the name of the Lord ; for his name alone is excellent ; his glory is above the earth and the heaven.
Page 213 - For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Page 105 - Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord.
Page 137 - GOD speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; then He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, that He may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
Page 267 - But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light...
Page 248 - The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
