A New Discovery is Chapter 10 of Fine Line, the sequel to Woodcutter’s Revival. Both books are historical fiction and written by Jerry Slauter. The books are set at the beginning of the final phase of the Industrial Revolution.

Discovery was the town in the San Juan Mountains owned by Edward Thomas. Since Edward’s death, his brother Michael has been assisting Victoria Thomas Warren in running the mines. Michael and Steward found they had to travel back up to Discovery to take care of some business. Over time, Discovery has changed. Stewart also found A New Discovery in his personal life.

As Michael and Stewart talked in the Inn the night before heading back to Wellspring, they discussed the role of prophesy in the Old Testament, the New Testament and possibly in relation to the United States. The conversation began with Paul’s description of the mystery that had been kept hidden for ages in Ephesians 3:9-11. The excerpt is as follows:

Stewart clarified, “His mystery, kept hidden in God, was that through the church, God’s wisdom would be revealed to rulers and authorities, principalities and powers, of His eternal purpose. In other words, ‘Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

Michael got excited and agreed, “Exactly! Church is projecting a ripple of awareness and consciousness, yet lacking in a wave of action. Church aligns with government to pervert justice, entitle the wealthy and control and suppress the poor. Religion is acceptable to government as long as it is not revolutionary or radical – as long as the people answer to man rather than to God. This is the epitome of conservative thought – keeping religion and the church acceptable to the ruling class and the god of nationalism - true social gospel.”

Stewart observed, “The greatness of America is that it allows the churches to function. We should not expect the government to do the function of the churches, such as take care of the needy, defend the defenseless and speak for those with no voice.

Michael agreed and added, “The deception flourishes when we argue over what government should or should not do for people. We should be discovering what the church can do for the people and the influence it is to exert over the leadership of the nation.”

Stewart added, “So America could be in trouble. God is pouring out His Holy Spirit. He is sending prophets to this nation and the world. Through His church, He is revealing to world leaders that His kingdom is coming and we should prepare.”

Michael said, “That’s right!”

Woodcutter’s Revival was released in 2012. Fine Line is set to be released in 2014.
