The Gift

(To Protect and Serve Book 1)

by Anne Perreault

The Gift

God opens doors, but it’s up to us to walk through them.

Dakota Taylor is stuck in a rut. Her dead-end job as a manager of a pizza place is unchallenging, she gets dumped by her obnoxious boyfriend and feels completely unloved by her family. That all changes in an instant when God steps into her life.

On the way home from a late shift, Dakota finds herself in a terrifying situation. Thankfully, two Boston police officers out on patrol come to her rescue and see her home safely. Dakota is certain that their paths will never cross again. She couldn’t be more wrong.

Shane Donavan likes his job as a Boston police officer. He’s thrown for a loop when he’s assigned to train a rookie but soon begins to appreciate his new partner’s sharp intellect and wit, especially when Shane finds himself staring at the wrong end of the barrel.

As a friendship develops between Dakota and Shane, Dakota accepts his invitation to participate in a weekend scavenger hunt. Shane quickly discovers that stakes are higher than merely lounging by the pool or fishing by the lake.

Will God turn this opportunity into something that will change Dakota and Shane’s lives forever?





Faith in the Age of AI

Christianity through the Looking Glass of Artificial Intelligence

by Dan Scott

Faith in the Age of AI

Imagine having lived in the generation that discovered fire.

Current scientific and technological advances will reorder our lives as much.

Artificial Intelligence, decoding the human genome, links between mind and computer… All these things that were once science fiction are now quickly—and absolutely—becoming science fact.

Could machines become sentient?
Is “life” a computer simulation?
Does science really have a genetic blueprint for all human life?

Believers and unbelievers alike are easily unnerved by such questions. Interestingly though, early Christians, mathematicians, scientists, and philosophers have already addressed these kinds of issues. And they have much to say about our “curiouser and curiouser” new world.

In Faith in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, pastor, priest, scholar, and counselor Dan Scott invites you to learn what these hallowed ancient voices might have said about faith in the age of Artificial Intelligence.
