I am 69, a widower, and this is my first book. The most important reason for this being my first book is that it took 40 years to digest grace thoroughly enough to write on it. This 'digestion'
process involves both careful and thorough biblical study with learning to apply what is learned to one's daily life. I think I have a much clearer idea of what James 3:1 means;
"Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we shall incur a stricter judgment."
In any event, I was born in California in 1943. I was married for 40 years, and have a grown son. I have pastored and taught most of my adult life. One of the things I have repeatedly observed in the Christian community is a lack of an adequate understanding of the bible, particularly with regard to grace.
Writing on grace has been my life's greatest priviledge and blessing. I hope this will help fill in some of the potholes we all encounter on life's road to eternity.
Basic Grace is for the spiritually hungry who seek a closer walk with Jesus, for the weak and wounded victims of legalism, unrealistic spiritual expectations, and the guilt that follows us silently and constantly. This happens because too few are teaching you the truth of grace. Now there is help for those who thirst for truth. Basic Grace is written to be understood by every Christian and used!
