Gone in a Flash (Women of Justice Story)
Christian Fiction > Suspense > Short Stories
Author: Lynette Eason
One of the most famous theologians of the twentieth century, Deitrich Bonhoeffer was hanged in a Nazi prison camp shortly before the end of World War II. Killed for his participation in a plot to assassinate Hitler, Bonhoffer has frequently been labeled a martyr of the Christian faith. And while he was not killed specifically for confessing Christ, it was his faith that led him to participate. Craig Slane argues persuasively that Bonhoeffer should be considered a martyr and that his martyrdom is similar to that of many other modern heroes of the faith who acted against injustice and died for it. This book is both a study of Bonhoeffer and a consideration of what martyrdom (“”witness to the death””) means today.

When a disgraced former Iranian military chief of staff engineers an insurgency that threatens to destroy the theocratic regime in Iran, a new era appears to be dawning in the Middle East. But one must be wary of old enemies . . .
On the run from the Pasdaran, the theocrat’s terror army, and unable to count on support from his friends in the regular army, Iranian rebel leader General Hesarak al-Kan Buzhazi desperately turns to his old nemesis, U.S. Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan, for help. Unwilling to commit American forces in an Iranian civil war, and with time running out, the U.S. president authorizes McLanahan to utilize a new, top-secret fleet of globe-crossing spaceplanes, the XR-A9 Black Stallions, led by test pilot and astronaut Captain Hunter Noble. Within hours, McLanahan’s Air Battle Force turns the tide, possibly changing the course of history in the Middle East for generations.
The advent of almost instantaneous global reach, along with the reactivation of America’s first military space station, Silver Tower, has rekindled fears of a space arms race, and the growing insurgency in Iran is threatening to erupt into a worldwide jihad. But McLanahan finds himself embroiled in even more bitter battles at the White House, between those who support his space-based military initiative and those who are working secretly to undermine it. When McLanahan is forced to concentrate on his political and personal battles back at home, it’s left to Hunter Noble and his team of young American space engineers to keep the fires of freedom in the Middle East from exploding completely out of control.
