LIVERMORE, Ca. (RUSHPRNEWS) March 4, 2008 — Journal of the Angelic: Odyssey of the Divine by Mark Raborn is now available nationwide. Hailed as an epic story of great love and unimaginable loss, Journal of the Angelic (WingSpan Press, $13.95, ISBN: 978-1-59594-164-0) is an extraordinarily imaginative, compelling, and mesmerizing tale. 

According to Raborn, “When I think of an angel, I think of a being infinitely more intelligent than us; and a being that knows God infinitely better. So, if angels are so much more intelligent than us, and know God so much better, why did so many betray the God of the universe and follow Lucifer in rebellion?  Also, if God is all knowing, omnipresent, and intolerant of sin, and I believe He is, how did sin befall the kingdom, and flourish, in His presence?”  

These are some of the questions that inspired Raborn to write Journal of the Angelic, a work narrated by an angel, Karmus, who is looking back, across the depths of antiquity, and relating events and experiences from his great past. From his own creation and maturation among the holy brethren, through the fall of Lucifer, the temptations of the saints, the wars in Heaven, the subsequent judgment by God Almighty and the Adamic dispensation, Karmus chronicles the unfolding of the human condition and how each of us was involved from the very beginning.  

Journal of the Angelic, though a work of speculative fiction, reinforces the command in Colossians 3:1-2, which reads, “Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things.”  C.S. Lewis said, “It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.”  Raborn bases the premise of his book on Scripture, but has creatively used his anointed imagination to give one a beautiful glimpse into the heavenly realm, both in the heretofore and in the hereafter. 

Journal of the Angelic has garnered lavish praise, including: “a majestic literary endeavor that brings a piece of Heaven to Earth” — Reader Views; “the language flowed beautifully and the level of description was amazing…a really great read” —Frontstreet Reviews; and “a great book for lovers of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien fans” – Richard R. Blake (for Amazon). 

Journal of the Angelic: Odyssey of the Divine is available wherever better books are sold. Mark A. Raborn is a conservative Christian believer with a unique passion for God and the study of His work. An accomplished musician who has traveled and recorded with numerous musical and theatre groups since the 1970s, Raborn is also a sought-after speaker.  Mark Raborn lives with his wife Lisa in Louisiana.
