Jeff Walton is a US Navy Vietnam veteran and retired US Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) special agent who spent over thirty-four years in law enforcement and national security work.
Final Departure is the result of Walton’s seven-year quest for answers about the Christian faith and the afterlife. In his Christian fiction work, Walton projects some of his career experiences and personal struggles on to the protagonist, Dan Lucas. Although the book is fiction, the heart of the story is an updated overview of Christian defense material.
Final Departure gives the reader a twisting tale of life, death, betrayal and love while presenting a no-nonsense examination of the Christian faith. The seasoned national security expert asks: Is the Bible really true? What proof is there that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth in human form? Why is faith receding in America? How has modern science actually helped make the case for a creator?
Walton realizes that faith is a deeply personal matter. His goal is to present the findings of subject matter experts in an entertaining, down-to-earth way that allows readers to judge for themselves. The book should be of special interest to anyone who is not sure if there is a God.
