Cross Current by C. Terry Cline, Jr.

Cross Current moves from the scientific to the spiritual, from the rational to the unexplainable. This is a story of fear, and the faith to overcome it.
Witnessing visions, a minister in a small southern town is seized by a mysterious disease. Joshua McDavid is a devout and powerful preacher, but there are unanswered questions in his past, and doubtful answers in his future. The faces he sees and the voices he hears are interpreted as hallucinatory, and he is sent to the finest clinic in the country for treatment.
But tests and medication cannot overcome McDavid's belief that his illness has religious significance. The woman who loves him sets off to investigate Joshua's past, to find if the disease might be divinely or genetically inspired.
Searching McDavid's genealogy she journey's through the American South, to Rome, and finally to Israel before answers begin revealing themselves. She follows his family back through seventeen generations and uncovers the horrible truth behind the series of generational suicides. But, as she discovers, even the solution to this puzzle may not save Joshua McDavid from himself or from the vicious infighting of the clinic staff.

About the Author

C. Terry Cline Jr. was born in Birmingham, Alabama “on a train going out,” he always said, because his family moved often during his youth. Terry looked at life as a big adventure and aspired to be a writer from an early age, despite the fact that he hated school. His relationship with traditional learning and his desire to escape authority to his natural environs was captured in Judith Richards's novel, Summer Lightning, set in Belle Glade, Florida.
Writing was an early interest, and he was selling articles on nature and short stories by age seventeen. As an adult, and creator of his own advertising and public relations business, Terry once trained a chimpanzee to bowl – a unique way to draw crowds to newly opened bowling alleys. He traveled the U.S. with Judy the “Chimpion” Bowler, appearing on every major TV outlet. The outgrowth of working with a chimp was a magazine, Land Alive, and an educational program on animals offered to schools.
At age 37, Terry sold his business to concentrate on writing novels. The first of his ten novels of psychological suspense sold after a three year effort. Cline was called a “master of suspense” by more than one reviewer. He finished his last work, The Cordoba Connection, a few months before suffering a stroke, which resulted in his death in 2013.
C. Terry Cline’s wife of thirty-four years, author Judith Richards, collaborated with him in the writing of all his works.
