Bipolar WINTER – July 3, 2020
by Samuel David Steiner (Author)
Historian Aldo Lombardi is a recent graduate of the Pontifical Gregorian University summoned to appear before Pope Benedict. Allison Gillespie is an investigator whose assignment leads her to Aldo and a 500-year-old secret whose discovery may unravel the very fabric of the Christian faith. The pair must uncover the truth behind the secret and reveal what the leaders of the modern Seventh-day Adventist Church know that could destroy the Catholic Church. It’s a race against time to discover the truth before hundreds of millions of followers are thrown into chaos—and before a rogue sect unleashes a global cataclysm to fulfill its founder’s doomsday prophecy.

About Samuel David Steiner
was born on October 11, 1952, in Mobile, Alabama, U.S.A.
I was raised as a Seventh-day Adventist (SDA). My parents remained faithful to the church's teachings their whole life. My father, a church pastor who later became a church administrator, was a loving man devoted to his family. My gracious mother likewise loved her children deeply. Despite their membership in the Seventh-day Adventist Church, my parents cared for their children well and instilled in them the virtues of honesty and integrity. When I left the Seventh-day Adventist Church, I embraced my mother's Jewish roots and found my home in the ancient faith.
According to a church tradition, I was to follow in his father's footsteps and become a church administrator. I was to help further develop the massive medical arm of the church as a modern evangelistic tool.
I decided that I would not support a Sabbath (Saturday) keeping church that teaches its young people they could soon be forced into prison or even lose their lives for defying church teachings. According to the prophecies of the SDA Church, the United States government will soon pass laws forbidding any Christian from worshiping on Saturday. As unbelievable as this sounds, I struggled with the concept. Additional false teachings of the church ultimately prompted me to leave the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Bipolar Winter is a work of fiction, but much of the story is based on facts.
