Bob Ryan has always had a passion for reading and writing. The trips to the libraries - before the internet - forced him to read books he never would have read, had the ones he looked for been available. By reading multiple genres, including various historical events, he grew to love reading for the sake of reading with an eclectic taste in stories.
His novels focus on the future in either a science fiction or dystopian setting and, on occasion, both. His blogs at the Times of Israel, as well as the occasional article mostly dwell on past events, but sometimes touch on current events. This gives him a wider range of writing than his novels alone could provide.
Bob is an American, Christian Zionist who believes Israel has the right to exist as a Jewish nation, just as others have the right to exist as Christian, Islamic, any other religion, or no religion at all.
He knows writing is a gift from God and writes to honor God. His writing contains subtle Judeo-Christian messages, since he wants to reach the largest audience possible.
Israel’s rebirth is prophecy unfolding, which no Christian should ever deny. To deny Israel is to deny the will of God. Some tribes have already returned, but most remain in hidden exile until God calls them home.
Amos 9: 14-15
“I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them.”
