J.B. Simmons is the author of five novels and countless legal briefs. His newest book tells the story of the church that George Washington served over two centuries ago. The Unbound trilogy fast forwards to 2066, and the Gloaming books speak to timeless philosophy. What's the common thread? Books that tackle hard questions and turn them into page-turners. Smart stories, big ideas.
National radio host and author Hugh Hewitt on Unbound: “This is going to be huge. . . . The Da Vinci Code meets The Hunger Games meets Left Behind. . . . An imagining epic.”
How a church lost everything and gained what matters most.
In 1763, George Washington visited The Falls Church and declared its building "rotten and unfit for repair." A fine brick colonial church was soon built on the spot. It witnessed key moments of American history, but by 1979 the church had become a sleepy place. A young pastor and a renewed focus on Jesus changed that. Within a decade, the church was building a new sanctuary to host thousands on its historic property.
But the faith that fueled this growth ran into conflict with a mainline denomination. Division and costly litigation ensued. The church lost the priceless land that Washington had once graced. Was it worth the cost? What would happen after such a loss?
Washington's church awakened, and not in ways anyone could have predicted.
