A Note from Nicholas

So glad you’re here! If you are someone who knows Jesus, if you need some encouragement, or if you struggle with your very own existence, I wrote this book for you!


  • Cappas hit a home run! Reads like a modern Screwtape Letters.

    Brent Slade FCA Baseball Director
  • An awesome piece of literature that depicts what it is like to engage in spiritual warfare in college. I could really relate to the main character Davis in his struggles, and I could learn from his examples!

    Sam Zoldack Samford University student
  • Maybe the most dangerous place today for Christian faith is the college campus. Insightfully, Nicholas Cappas develops his story right there in the middle of it all. In the spirit of Lewis's The Screwtape Letters we find the battle for Davis Lewis Chandler, a college freshman. We do well to realize that we are not fighting flesh and blood (Eph 6:12). Thanks Nicholas, for a very effective reminder.

    Marlin Detweiler President of Award-Winning Veritas Press, Classical Christian Education
  • A dynamic, fast paced story with spiritual encouragement in its fabric. Great read. Cappas blew it out of the water.

    Chris Middleton Biola University student, former student body president of Wesley Academy
  • Definitely recommend this for any senior high kid about to head to college.

    Daniel O'Quinn (Big D) Atlanta KLIFE Director
  • Inspired by the literary genius of CS Lewis, Cappas skillfully takes The Screwtape Letters and turns it on its head. Captivating to the heart & mind, Heaven Breaks In masterfully affirms God's wisdom and presence victorious over life's challenges.

    Jana Harmon Teaching Fellow, CS Lewis Institute of Atlanta
  • Cappas weaves the truth of Scripture beautifully into the life and story of his protagonist Davis. A powerful aid to help us see our world through a biblical lense.

    Caroline White RUF Campus Ministry
  • Intriguing story, fascinating characters. This book’s bound for Hollywood.

    Chris Milhous Former CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Atlanta
  • "In today's over secularized world the spiritual dynamics of the Christian life have been all but lost. Like The Screwtape Letters did 75 years ago, Heaven Breaks In opens the heart and the mind to the true spiritual battle that we all face."

    Jason Dees, PhD Senior Pastor of Christ Covenant Buckhead, SBC
  • Cappas awakens our imagination to the reality of spiritual warfare. Heaven Breaks In reminds us that our battle is not against flesh and blood, and he who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world.

    Robby Higginbottom College Minister, Park Cities Presbyterian Church, PCA
  • A stirring reminder of the warfare we face. Cappas has the piercing insight of a first-rate scriptwriter. Christian storytelling just reached new heights!

    Anna Julise Cook Professional Actor
  • Heaven Breaks In pulls the curtain back on the reality of life as a college freshman. As the story unfolds you will be drawn in, find the book hard to put down, and discover spiritual insights that might just change the way you view and live life.

Hello there!

Here’s my story …

I first felt the call to write while studying Divinity at Baylor University. I’d take classes at the seminary & also in literature and theater. Two different worlds, but I always wanted them closer together.

After Baylor I went to Wake Forest to study an MA in English. Interesting, that I had the same two world’s experience … why weren’t there more Christian voices among the artists of culture?

God kept opening doors. I lived in England for 3 years earning a Master of Letters at the University of Birmingham. Our university owned the Shakespeare Institute and it was an easy train ride south to London’s theater district. Here’s a picture of me drinking lemonade on a sunny day, no gray clouds overhead.

The Holy Spirit continues to guide my steps. I live in Atlanta, GA and write for a living while serving in student ministry and bible studies for professionals.

It’s my deepest desire to create art that will glorify God; art that not only entertains, but inspires people to be better; art that can reflect how far, wide and deep the love of God is in Christ Jesus!
