Time travel takes us back to the year 1974 when Scott Webb was fifteen. His parents subscribed to National Geographic magazine, which included an article about the wonders of Alaska. His imagination was awakened and he began to dream of visiting Alaska, although he lived in northern Illinois and had no means to get there. Shortly thereafter his mother returned from a church meeting bringing a flier about a youth ministry operation called Teen Missions, which included a team to Alaska. He applied and was accepted.
At the training, he heard sermons from Bob Bland, the director for Teen Mission about the glories of missionary life. This concept was added to his imagination and the following summer he went to the island of Dominica to do more missionary work. At age 18, he added to his evangelical resume the smuggling of Russian Bibles into the former U.S.S.R. He attended Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, but graduated from Wheaton College, Chicago, with a degree in philosophy in February, 1981.
Fast forward to 1995, where Scott was in the position of Magazine Marketing Director for The Upper Room, a devotional publisher based in Nashville, Tennessee. He served on an executive committee which was to prepare the organization for the digital age. The director of the organization envisioned the future of magazines as distributed on CD-ROM disk, while Scott presented the coming Internet as the place to invest, thereby professionally alienating him from the rest of the management team. His superior warned him that his job was at stake, which indeed it was.
A new overseer of marketing was brought in from the Christianity Today organization based in Wheaton, Illinois. Shocking to Scott was the methods used to discredit his record within the organization, thereby triggering a series of events leading to Scott’s resignation and his awakening to Vampire influence within the ranks of the heart of inspirational Christianity. Scott’s further investigations into what went wrong for him, and has gone wrong for many others, led him to the creation of Jesus The Vampire Slayer, his fourth book.
Since 2001, Scott Wright Webb has also authored:
A Curse, My Blessing, an autobiographical account of his evangelical journey and a subsequent awakening.
Inside Poop, writings from his experience as a colon hygienist exploring the causes behind an epidemic of illness in America beginning about 1960
You Unplugged, a brief health sequel about the reasons behind widespread constipation and how to avoid it.
Video footage taken from his life is available at YouTube.com/shag9y. He currently resides in Tennessee where he has taken up gardening, chicken raising, and other hillbilly interests including, but not limited to, hanging out on the front porch drinking moonshine and home-crafted fermented beverages, all in moderation, of course.

- Passing Through: An Ex-Fundamentalist's Pursuit of Personal Spirituality
on Sep. 13, 2011
This is a "thinking person's story." Hart's voice is reminiscent of Holden Caulfield, composed of complex thoughts one might think in the process of maturing to adulthood. What is the reader "Passing Through" with the author? It feels like we peer into the mind of an honest man as he confronts a highly repressive environment. He stands before Irony, because Christianity is intended to liberate the spirit, not tie it in knots. Unless one has also experienced the dishonesty of an extreme Christian subculture, the many details could be confounding. The story goes down easy, however, because of the way it flows like a diary, as mentioned earlier, journaled by an honest man, evolved and uncompromised. Hart has documented what it requires to be faithful to the spirit of Christ, that is, one seeking transformation today, not just conformity.
