Dear Mr. Borland,
I found a passage in your novel (In a Moment’s Time) very evocative of the story of Peter in front of the crowd in Acts 12:17, especially with regard to the elements of silence, of death and life, and of dream present in both texts: “It was like an ancient Roman forum, as they all sat watching the play and turned in unison to look at me. They clapped and they hooted and they laughed, as the empty faced performers apparently gave their lines, which I couldn’t hear but they heard it, and it caused the assembly to rock in their seats. I stood and watched this spectacle and suddenly all were silent as I walked up the steps. I walked to the center of the stage, looked at the empty faced chorus and then to the silent audience and spoke, “You are all wrong. I’m alive, but if I was dead, I wouldn’t be here, I would be with God. For God knows me, not you. You only know a person for a moment, a short time, not that person’s life…not me…not me…not me…” I raised myself up on my elbows, coming out of my dream. “My God, what was that all about?” See David Borland, In a Moment’s Time (Victoria, BC: FriesenPress, 2012), 235. I am wondering whether you, worked, consciously or not, with the overall picture of Acts 12.
