A Medical Thriller

Follow Dr Faith Pernitelli, a fresh medical school graduate, as she starts her training in Ob-Gyn, motivated, excited, and eager to become an excellent obstetrician. Her marriage to a high-risk obstetrics specialist is in shambles, romantic advances come from a co-worker, and her landlord forces her to move. The COVID pandemic turns life upside down. Challenged by her patients' critical illnesses and deaths, the threat of the virus to herself and her colleagues, and her husband's turbulent struggle with fentanyl washes over her. Can she land on her feet? Who will survive and who will die?

      Man lives on a timeline in a Physical World where time governs all aspects of our lives.  We don’t determine when we are born or when we die, we can’t speed time up, slow it down, or reverse it.  Events in our lives happen in a fixed sequence, we can’t see the future, and we can only be one place at a time.

God has no timeline, is outside of time, and is not confined to time.          The Spiritual Realm has no clock or calendar.  God has always existed and will always exist.  God has no beginning and no end.  He is everywhere all the time.

      Take a Deep Dive into the scriptures to see why this is true, how the differences explain confusing passages of scripture, and see communication conduits between the Physical World with time and the Spiritual Realm without it. 

      This rigorous Bible study, with more than 400 scriptural footnotes, will open your eyes and bring you closer to God.  So grab your Bible and enjoy the read.
