The Alabaster Cross

To Read an Excerpt from "The Alabaster Cross" Click here

Trapped in a world of anger, 29-year-old Bryan Whittaker cannot move on with his life until he takes a journey into his past...a dangerous journey that will lead him into the heart of the Amazon Rain Forest.  Instead of the revenge he seeks Bryan finds Diana and through her love he is able to make peace with his past and find redemption.

When his missionary father disappeared, while on a mission of mercy to a remote tribe deep in the interior of the Amazon Rain Forest, seven-year-old Bryan's life changed forever. He lost not only his father but also his faith.  He could not trust a God who seemingly turned a deaf ear to a small boy's desperate prayers.

Consumed with a grief she could not share, Bryan's mother left him to grieve alone a burden too heavy for any child to bear.  As a consequence his grief turned into anger and he began a twenty-two year odyssey of broken relationships.  His toxic rage destroyed his faith, made him a terrible son to his mother, estranged him from his sister and ruined his marriage.  It wounded him, turned him into an emotional cripple, unable to express any emotion except anger.

Recently divorced, his mother newly buried, and at odds with his sister, Bryan is at a crossroads in his life.  Bitter, resentful, unable to hold a job and most of all unable to love or be loved he takes his share of the small inheritance from his mother's modest estate and heads for the Amazon Basin in a desperate attempt to discover what happened to his father.

The Alabaster Cross is a deeply human story about the complexities of love between a man and a woman, parents and children, a brother and a sister, and ultimately the transforming power of divine love.

If you've ever struggled to restore a broken relationship you will identify with Bryan's journey as he strives to make peace with his past.

"In The Alabaster Cross, Richard Exley has written a compelling and exciting story of mystery, adventure and romance. A young man's passionate pursuit to discover the truth about his father's disappearance in the Amazon also leads him on a fascinating spiritual journey as he faces his own confusion, bitterness and grief. This is a beautifully written story of faith, perseverance, forgiveness and redemption. I was not only captivated by the adventure, I was also impacted in my own spiritual journey. It takes a great book to accomplish both of those." (E. Brewer, Grapevine, TX)

Man of Valor

This is your chance to prove YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES

In a society where it has become socially acceptable to hide who we really are, author Richard Exley, addresses the daunting pressures all men face challenging them to confront those issues with conviction and strength of character.

A compelling presentation, without theological posturing, Exley speaks about the uncomfortable and often unspoken issues of manhood addressing everything from financial pressures, integrity, health, juggling the demands of family and career and the real price of infidelity.

As a man created in the image of God, you are destined for greatness. You were created to conquer. You may feel it is too late, that you've been robbed of your destiny. Efforts to prove your masculinity, whatever form they may have takenathletic exploits, financial success, sexual escapades, or even feats of courage may have all proven futile. Think again.  While your inner enemies can never be defeated with the carnal weapons of physical prowess or business acumen they are no match for the Truth.  God's truth will defeat these enemies and set you free to fulfill your destiny. 

Set in a devotional format, the chapters are short, hard-hitting, and straight to the point utilizing action steps designed to help you integrate these principles into your own daily life.

But enough of that let's get started your destiny is calling.

Man of Valor
White Stone Books, 2005

"I have a library of several hundred books. In it, I've reserved a special section for only a few special books that have become a staple in my life. I read those few books over and over again, even take them with me when I travel. Man of Valor is one of them. My copy is bent and warped from all the use. If you are a man and are serious about your walk with God get this book!" (Perry M, Greenwell Springs, LA)

Witness the Passion

This exquisite and compelling book by best-selling author, Richard Exley, helps readers meet the Savior in a marvelously fresh way. "You will see Jesus as you've never seen Him before through the eyes of those who were there."

Readers will see Jesus through the eyes of His mother, Mary. His friend, Simon Peter. His betrayer, Judas. His judge, Pontius Pilate. His executioner, a Roman Centurion. His fellow criminal, a repentant thief.

More importantly, readers will see themselves in all of these portraits—meeting Jesus, experiencing His life, witnessing first-hand His crucifixion, His death, His burial, and His glorious resurrection.

Luminous, vivid, and tender, this is Exley’s most insightful and inspiring book ever!

"Richard Exley has insightfully provided a glimpse into what it may have been like to Witness the Passion from the viewpoints of several key players. This book is a great way for people old and young to reconnect with their faith or simply deepen their interest. As a college student studying the New Testament, I was able to visualize the Passion Narratives and have a deeper understanding after reading this book. I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Exley where he presented me a copy of this book and without any words of persuasion, he helped me find my faith that had waned in prior years. I highly recommend this book to all readers." (A. Precella)

Through each moving vignette, you will be forever transformed  by these candid and personal accounts of individuals who met Jesus face-to-face If you are ill, may you encounter the Healer.  If you are being held back by fear or even in bondage to addiction, may you encounter the One who came to liberate every one of us.

Straight From the Heart for Dad

Straight From the Heart for Dad
By Richard Exley

“I'm fifty-five years old now, and I realize that there are many things I may never accomplish. For instance, I may never write a book that sells a million copies. I may never serve as pastor of a church of several thousand members, and I will probably never be elected to an important position in my denomination.

There was a time when all of that was important to me. Not any more. I still want to be the very best I can be in everything I do, but I am no longer driven by temporal symbols of success. Achievements of that nature, while gratifying, pale in comparison with the true achievements of life – the shaping of the faith and character of my family.

I'm convinced that when we stand before God, at the final judgment, He will not ask us about our honors and the awards we have won. He will not ask us about the degrees we have earned, or the wealth we have amassed. Rather He will ask, ‘Where are the children I entrusted to you?’

In light of that, the greatest reward a man can ever hope to receive this side of eternity, is to see his children cherishing the faith which he entrusted to them. And to watch with thanksgiving as they make the family's spiritual traditions their own and a vital part of their children's lives.”

· If you want to relive the memories of your father…this book is for you.

· If you want to laugh and cry and re-experience life’s most treasured moments…this book is for you.

· If you want practical principles wrapped in a heart warming story…this book is for you.

· If you want to be the kind of Dad your children will never forget …this book is for you.
