Anthony J. Cleveland, Associate Professor of Psychology at Jackson College, has released his first book. Roots of Faith, written in the genre of Christian historical fiction, grew from the authors own desire to learn about his ancestors and the potential role they played in the development of the Christian religion in America. Cleveland has brought to life the stories of four ancestral families. He writes … “the journey begins in ancient pagan Celtic Britain and ends on the bloody civil war battlefields of northern Georgia.” In the preface Cleveland explains, “The nature of historical fiction is to write and record what is known then fill in the gaps of knowledge with a narrative that hopefully helps the reader understand the world through the perceptions of the characters, both real and fictitious. I have attempted to weave history and myth, fact and fiction together to create an imaginative yet informative book about the importance of faith in the lives of not only mine but all of our ancestors.”
The author spent over 25 years working in the private sector before starting his own journey of faith. After enrolling at Michigan Theological Seminary (now Moody Theological Seminary – Michigan) he earned a degree in Counseling Psychology. While practicing as a clinician, he discovered a passion for the classroom and is now a tenured member of the Behavior Science department of Jackson College, Jackson, Michigan. In 2012, he received the prestigious Outstanding Faculty Award from the institution.
Mr. Cleveland’s work, Roots of Faith, is now available at Amazon. For book updates, follow the author on Facebook @ RootsofFaithbyAJC.
