First as a layman and then as an ordained minister I have mentored hundreds through thousands of original Bible teachings, seminars, classes, small groups, and one-on-one. My wife and I have also counseled singles, couples, and families. Gwen is the author of "First One to the Cross: A Wives' Guide to a Winning Marriage". Gwen and I also enjoy studying biblical archaeology, and have visited sites in eight different countries. We wanted to see the places of the Bible with our own eyes and learn the cultures and histories of each site.
I have had the privilege of teaching in Israel, Philippi, Thessaloniki, Corinth, Athens, and Egypt. We have traveled the route of the Exodus across the Red Sea (by boat) through Sinai and up to Mt Nebo in Jordan. Three times we have followed in the footsteps of Paul, by land and by sea - along the old Roman highways and by ship throughout the northern Mediterranean; even the course of Paul's final shipwreck.
I began my professional career as a CPA because of my knack for organizing information. Come to find out, many Christian theologians and prophecy scholars have backgrounds in law, accounting, and business. For Christians who believe that the Bible is God-breathed, the ability to gather information and draw correlations is crucial for rightly dividing the Word of God.
To be a good teacher, one must be a good story teller. Ultimately, unless principles can be explained in down-to-earth, real-life terms, the most brilliant insights cannot be conveyed to the writer's audience. Believe me when I say, "I can relate to people." Here is a list of my hobbies: Sailing, Golf, Skiing, Jewelry, Sculpture, Hiking, Tennis and Flying. And these are some of the trades I have learned and actually been paid for: Carpenter, Welder, Jeweler, Locksmith, Cook, Electrician, Metal Sculptor, Salesman, Psychiatric technician, Land Surveyor, Painter, Security Guard, and my three main careers (so far), CPA, Pastor, and Writer - no really, I'm serious!
I hope you will find my books to be engaging, insightful, and memorable.
