Harold Carper


Harold Carper is a United States Air Force veteran, husband, father, and systems administrator.

The son of ministers, he was brought up in the Assemblies of God. Once on his own, however, he asked too many questions to which there were no satisfactory answers in mainstream Christianity. After years of study and debate with armchair, Internet theologians from around the world, Harold’s searching led him to a new spiritual home among Messianic Jews and Hebraic Christians. He found the Messianic perspective more scripturally founded, more intellectually rigorous, and richer in tradition than any other, and has been a Torah-keeping Christian ever since.

Politically, Harold is a libertarian-leaning conservative or a conservative-leaning libertarian, though very likely neither group would claim him.

Finally, Harold Carper is a Texan, by choice if not by birth. His son is a native Texan, and Harold has done his best to adopt the customs, attitudes, and mannerisms of his adopted home within the moral constraints of liberty and God’s Law. There are more guns in his house than people, and still not enough.

Smashwords book reviews by Harold Carper

  • The Highwayman on Sep. 27, 2017

    Dead Like Me meets Ghost Rider. Good flow and great characters. Ended with a setup for an epic clash between good(?) and evil.
  • Epitaph on Nov. 01, 2017

    I was a little put off at first by a bit of dated astronomy and the banter between the characters (I HATED Gilmore Girls), but the banter was short lived and the dated astronomy served a useful purpose to the plot. Overall, I enjoyed Epitaph. I wish it had been significantly longer!
