Markus is an English lord and Templar fearing God and hiding from his past. The Hospitaller, Sir Charle, and the woman of Markus’s heart, Lady Mairín, desire to end his ruinous descent into despair. A letter from a slain brother-knight is perceived as the calling for Markus to return to the Land of Christ, and his failures. There he expects to discover whether God will set his conscience free from the weight of his burdens and restore him, or if he must offer his life to attain his absolution…

Stitched Crosses: Crusade is a tale of faith in doubt and turmoil. Set in the waning days of the 12th century, Christendom has embarked to rescue Outremer from Saladin’s Muslim armies. These historical events, combined with exciting medieval action, popular romantic legend, and the sense of the Divine, serve as the canvas to this tale of a knight wrestling with his spirit.

What People are saying about Crusade

“I enjoyed Stitched Crosses: Crusade thoroughly and was edified as well.”

Pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne IN
Author of God With Us and Thy Kingdom Kingdom Come (Emmanuel Press), Departmental Editor at Gottesdienst: The Journal of Lutheran Liturgy, regular contributor on Issues, Etc.

“A young Lutheran author whose writing is accessible to anyone from mature pre-teen to adult. And he’s a Worldview Everlasting viewer…so you know it’s going to have good theology!”

Executive Director and Producer, Worldview Everlasting

“This story has a way, in fact many ways, of giving the reader a glimpse of the one, great true story: the Gospel. The reader is drawn into a world of historical narrative, with knights, honor, adventure, and redemption, in order to shed light on the great redemption and restoration to life in Christ.”

Pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Huntington Beach, CA
Contributor at 1517: The Legacy Project

“The author’s fiction is stitched flawlessly into the fabric of church history with the thread of Arthurian myth. The read propelled me back in time, expanding my imagination while enriching my Christian beliefs through it’s powerful delivery of the Gospel.”

Pastor of St Mark’s Lutheran Church, Ferndale CA
Author of The Gift and the Defender

“Fantastical elements are present just enough to lend pop, and the exploration of Christian doubt and guilt is well worth the read. Love and honor are certainly involved, but this book addresses issues including the role of God’s Word and what is faith in a probing but non-preachy way.”

Deaconess at The Cranach Institute
Author of Blessed: God’s Gift of Love (Concordia Publishing House)

“From start to finish, I was thoroughly impressed with the storyline and attention to detail. It is apparent that the author has a passion for this time in history, a distinct talent for storytelling and character development, all backed by a firm foundation in God’s Word.”
