About Scott Webb

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.

While reading Scott Webb's book, "Asparagus is Forever," I found myself writing down some of his very wise quotes to keep. I especially loved his quotation "The only thing that makes progress is honesty." The book is full of advice that is wise and funny!
