John 1:1-5, 14

The prologue to John’s gospel serves as an introduction to God, not as a person, not as a being, but as the Word: the truth. This is exactly what was emphasized in multiple Old Testament accounts, from Genesis to God revealing Himself as I AM to Moses. 80 more words

Epilogue: Prologue 

You know the how people say ‘seize the moment’. How some may respond that ‘the moments seize us’. We assume so much of the world and ourselves that we’ll find a way to live in the moments no matter what, we never think about what a moment is. 221 more words

Writing

Eva Blaskovic reblogged this on Beyond the Precipice and commented:

“I intended to drop the backstory into the book gradually, because I’d had it drummed into me that prologues were a BAD THING by lots of writing experts. I read this passage aloud at my writers’ group and it didn’t go down well…

“So, after trying my best to avoid a prologue because ‘experts’ told me it was wrong, I tried writing a prologue to ‘establish context and give background details,’ as it says in Wikipedia. In the opening prologue to A Way from Heart to Heart as it has now been published, I describe how five years before the actual story begins the heroine’s husband dies in Afghanistan. In the prologue, she is brought the news by the hero.

“The reader immediately has sympathy for them both through this prologue (at least I hope so!), it’s full of action, and it sets up the entire premise of the novel – that the heroine is terrified of further loss for her son.”
