Dr. Paul Perkins

Join The Adventure!

For an author writing is as necessary as breathing. They don't write for money or to court literary fame, but because they believe they have something to say. It matters not that anyone will read or listen, the words must be written, and if in the process someone is blessed -- all the more wonderful

Dr. Perkins has written for a long time, but only recently has sought to publish his work and venture into new genres. He believes in education, finally earning his doctorate at the age of 55. He believes that learning never ends, giving fodder to the imagination and breathing life into the characters on his page. His hope is to continue telling stories for a new generation of readers and aspiring authors.

Dr. Perkins' first novel is "Centurion: From glory to glory", but is not his first book. He has written "Legacy to my sons", "The Lost Shepherd", "The prayer of a transformed life", "The Cost", and a verity of Christian Youth Devotionals. 

Against the backdrop of a chaotic world three young men seek answers. The voice from the spinneret and the teaching of their Imams fill their minds with Jihad (struggle). But not all Jihad finds its way onto the evening news. The Blue door is a spiritual journey winding its way through the streets of a Middle Eastern souk and trying to find its place in the world. 

Yusuf, Omar, and Bassar find themselves caught up in a world of excitement and confusion, and each follow a different path. “Three Jihads,” the Imam said, “Wage the war in your heart, let it shape your culture, and when necessary let it wage against the kafir.” Yet, the Blue door calls them to step beyond what they know to follow a more difficult path, a path that will lead their Jihad to a whole new level.
