Dr. Christian Sage Launches SAGE AGAINST THE MACHINEDr. Christian Sage Launches SAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
by BWW News Desk - Feb 8, 2016

Dr. Christian Sage and his team of archaeologists are at it again, this time discovering a tablet that confirms the biblical story of Jonah in the hostile territory of Iraq. However, they are up against former friend and colleague turned radical imam, Jabari Saal, who is empowered by demonic forces and is leading a worldwide campaign to restore the ancient religion of Cain en route to world dominion. 'It has been fun and adventurous to take the ancient biblical narratives of Cain and Jonah and integrate them into a modern geopolitical context,' said Brian Newberry. 'Sage Against the Machine, the sequel to The Battle of Pneumatika, follows Dr. Sage and his children on an epic political adventure that pulls the curtain back on the evil that lurks within unlikely leaders.' In Sage Against the Machine, Dr. Sage's grown children-Alex and Alicia Sage-are being pursued on both national and international fronts. In the United States, Alicia Sage has become a dangerous thorn in the president's side and a threat to his plan to reduce American dominance and radically bring about the New World Order. Now on the run abroad, Alex Sage travels from Italy to Egypt and Israel, encountering a barrage of opposition that includes CIA operatives, a remnant of giant demi-gods from ancient times, and the infamous Jabari Saal himself. Sage Against the Machine, the sequel to The Battle of Pneumatika, is not only a thrilling apocalyptic novel, but it also explores ancient biblical narratives, theology, and spirituality and places them within a thrilling tale of suspense in a modern political context. 'In my first book, the under-lying theme was asking the question 'why does evil exist,' explains Newberry. 'In Sage Against the Machine, we find our characters struggling to understand with whom they align themselves. Choosing evil over good isn't always the clear or easy choice. The combination of extensive research and creative storytelling hopefully provides an entertaining read while offering thought provoking considerations.' 'It has been such a pleasure working with Brian on his sequel to The Battle of Pneumatika,' said Lisa Umina, founder and publisher at Halo Publishing International. 'Brian has an ability to take well-known biblical stories like Noah in his first book and Jonah in this new adventure and create a world of angels and demons that are intriguing and entertaining. He introduces controversial theological topics without offering a right or wrong answer, which allows the reader to come to their own conclusions.' Spoiler alert: the story doesn't end here. Look for the next installment in the Pneumtika series coming soon. Sage Against the Machine is available at Amazon.com for $18.95. * Paperback: 500 pages * Publisher: Halo Publishing International (January 26, 2016) * Language: English * ISBN-10: 1612444253/ ISBN-13: 978-1612444253 * Product Dimensions: 6 x 1 x 9 inches About Brian Newberry: Brian Newberry graduated with high honors from Biola University, receiving a B.A. in Psychology and becoming inducted into the Alpha Sigma Lambda Society for scholastic achievement. He is currently pursuing an M.A. in Theology and Biblical Studies at Azusa Pacific Seminary. He is also a catechist at St. Pancratius Roman Catholic Church in Lakewood, CA. He lives with his wife, son, and daughter in Long Beach, CA.
