ENUMCLAW, Wash., Feb. 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- Americans are fascinated by spiritual matters, as evidenced by reactions to recent works such as 'The Passion of the Christ', 'The DaVinci Code', 'Left Behind', and 'The Purpose Driven Life.' And statistics concur; according to The Hartford Institute for Religion Research, there are an estimated 335,000 religious congregations in the United States.
Diane M. Dizon’s new book, 'Bright Morning Star' [2006, Pleasant Word], chronicles the final three years of Jesus Christ and reaches out to the millions of readers seeking spiritual truth. She writes, "'Bright Morning Star' is a presentation of the divine biblical revelation of Christ that communicates the glory of Jesus in a style both powerful and reverent.”
Dizon acknowledges the need for answers sought by moviegoers and readers alike. The curiosity is there, she says; it just needs a little inspiration. Dizon hopes her novel lights a fire in Christians and sparks interest in others to follow God’s truth, even at the expense of personal sacrifice. Her passion to displace spiritual apathy began five years ago.
When Diane Dizon challenged readers of the Guam Newspaper in 2001 with a piece titled, 'Where is the Fire?', fellow islanders felt the heat and offered overwhelming––if not surprising––support. In her article, Dizon contended churchgoers in Guam lacked spiritual fervor, opting instead for the comforts of rituals and manmade doctrine; and the people agreed.
Fueled by their encouragement, Dizon resolved to hit the keyboard again, in hopes of fully igniting a lurking passion for Jesus Christ. 'I want the reader to be inspired to a greater appreciation for the necessity of Jesus.'
Ms. Dizon is a member of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. She was the secretary for the Vicar General of the Diocese of Fresno and secretary for several of the parishes within the Diocese from 1983-1990. Currently the manager of Kihei Clinic and Wailea Medical Services, Ms. Dizon and her husband, Peter, reside on Maui, Hawaii.
