"As with all my writing projects, If Tomorrow Comes started when several thoughts came together over several years," says Glen. "Many Christians become complacent about the end time, thinking that events have to happen a certain way in order for Jesus to come. I wanted to approach the story in a way that hadn't been handled before. In addition, rather than dealing with events on a worldwide scale, I wanted to show it on a personal levelùhow it would affect a family."
