Writing Career and Other Interests
A deeply religious individual, Christopher is convinced that it was through God's providence that he survived a near-fatal motor vehicle accident in Guyana in 1978 (God In Our Midst, 2003, Xlibris Corp. pgs. 19-23). Apart from a number of minor injuries, he suffered a broken leg and an almost severed right hand. An account of the 1978 accident and the mention of other "miracles" in his life are contained in Persaud's 2003 book, God In Our Midst (Xlibris Corporation, USA). Persaud's other books include Famous People Speak About Jesus (Xlibris Corporation, 2004); Transformed Lives (Xlibris Corporation, 2005) and Evolution: Beyond the Realm of Real Science (Xulon Press, USA, 2007); The Da Vinci Code Revisited: A Conclusive Refutation of the Widespread, Sinister Lie (Xlibris Corporation, 2010).
Among Christopher's literary accomplishments is being selected Grand Prize Winner in the 2008 national Christian Choice Book Awards contest for his work Evolution: Beyond the Realm of Real Science (Xulon Press, USA, 2007), the latter book being named the 2008 Christian Choice Book of the Year. . . . .

The Grand Prize Winner and two runners up are selected from the winners of the various categories. Each year's Grand Prize Winner is honored nationally in print and on the radio and is featured in a radio advertisement on more than 100 Christian radio stations nationwide. In 2010, Christopher again won a national award for his writing. His book The Da Vinci Code Revisited: A Conclusive Refutation of the Widespread, Sinister Lie (Xlibris Corporation, 2010) won first prize in the Theology category of the 2010 Christian Choice Book Awards. Like his previous award, Persaud's win was noted nationally on the Internet and in press releases in various newspapers around the country. . . . . . In addition to his theological research and documentation, Persaud makes occasional apologetics presentations and delivers speeches at religious institutions.
