Mark Toop, Lloyd author of What Happens at the Rapture.

Christian bibliophiles can rejoice on July 16 as four local authors are setting up a simultaneous book signing at Verses book store.
“I think it just makes for a better opportunity to have multiple conversations at once to see different points of view,” said McKenzie Spies, assistant manager at Verses.
The authors who are taking part include Jenny Rumancik, who will be signing copies of her biography, I Met Jesus at the Gym, Mark Toop will be onsite with What Happens at the Rapture, Charles Balenga will autograph copies of Africa, It’s Time and Kelsey Greye will be there with her book, A Bitter Root.
According to its description, Rumancik’s I Met Jesus at the Gym is a biography, detailing her healing processes from childhood and adult traumas and her path to self-discovery after leaving the Hutterite colony where she was born.
It’s also a story about how she found Jesus, having her faith tested, and how she stood up to those tests in the end. 
Toop’s work, What Happens at the Rapture, is about how opinions regarding death, the afterlife and the rapture vary, and it looks deep into the word of God to see what is actually said within the scriptures.
Africa, It’s Time, by Balenga looks at the level of poverty in the said continent and how Balenga sees it as unacceptable.
According to its description, it’s Balenga’s hope that his book pushes readers out of their comfort zones and into action for the suffering Africans.
Greye’s A Bitter Root is about a woman, Grace Flynn, who wants a quiet life, mixing up herbal remedies to help residents in 1840s London.
Then through circumstance, Flynn meets a detective and they ultimately work together to find London’s most dangerous crime lord.
“We really only do this event a couple times a year, so it makes for a bigger splash and bigger opportunity to meet new people,” Spies said, about having four authors on hand at once.
For those who want to get copies of their books signed and have conversation with the authors, the signing takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. at #12-1804 50 Ave.
