Bill Etem

Biography

You say it sort of like Billy Tem. B.A. in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota. Living in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Single. Getting up there in years, born 1.2.60. Ex high school math teacher, ex lot of things. Lived in Los Angeles for a few years, same with Colorado. Lived in Mexico, in Oaxaca mostly, for 20 months after leaving LA. Oaxaca is in the tropics but high up in the mountains, and cool breezes keep you comfortable. Spent 4 months wandering round Europe right after college but lately it's just been all work in Minneapolis, holding done various jobs while writing and researching my books.

My novels Amanda's War, Warrior Girls, Single Moms, and Queen of Shadows are only slightly religious. Skool Dayz is a little more religious than those, but it's not preachy or all that didactic. All of my other books are very religious.

I tend to think either Rock Island or Constitutional History of the Western World is my best book. The former has the advantage that it is something that can be read in a few hours. The latter has 10 times more info in it but it also takes 10 times longer to read. If you find Rock Island tough to read you might try Guilty Pleasures or The Girl on Fire: Katniss Everdeen and The Christian Symbolism in the Hunger Games. These two books are pretty easy reading. But they don't cover some of my main points. It's been a long time since I read all of Protestantism and all of The Cult. I suppose some people would prefer these 2 abridgments of Constitutional History of the Western World over Rock Island.

We follow the adventures of young Al Kowasko. He has some triumphs as well as some bleak frustrating times, some maddening challenges to deal with during his life prior to 1st grade. Certainly not a work of Naturalism or Realism, but not completely Absurdist fiction either. Why have kids study lots of math and physics?

After a look at the symbolism in the four films in 'The Hunger Games' series we move on to paraphrases of Roman Catholicism and Islam and eventually we arrive at Ezekiel 36. 24-28, which is a prophesy having two parts.

Rock Island
Price: Free! Words: 45,090. Language: English. Published: March 12, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Christian » General
The hate in the Kavanaugh / Ford / Swetnick fight largely centers on religion. If God will cast into hell those who don't lift a finger to stop abortionists from killing the unborn, then you want to push for pro-life laws. The hardcore pro-choicers hate that God and say pro-lifers are Nazis who deserve to be strangled with coathangers, so, naturally there's lots of rage over the abortion laws.
Single Moms

Single Moms is the sequel to Warrior Girls. The latter novel introduced readers to a company of warrior women - Seraphinaria, Mirabrasantes et. al.

A church resembles an airline in that a church tells people: profess and obey what we teach and we will get your soul to heaven, and an airline says: fly our planes and we'll get you safely to your destination. What exactly does Christianity teach? Roman Catholics say: obey Rome and Rome will get you to heaven. Protestant Fundamentalists say Rome teaches heresy and leads people to perdition.
Protestantism
Price: Free! Words: 73,900. Language: English. Published: June 17, 2014. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion and Spirituality » Biblical Commentary / General
Twain has a funny line in 'Life on the Mississippi' about the Catholic explorers Desoto, Joliet etc. traveling with lots of priests to `teach hell to the savages.' The non-threatening John 3.16 is one way to introduce Christianity to Non-Christians. Eventually you have to explain that John 3.16, John 15.6, Matthew 25.31-46, Matthew 5, Luke 16.19-31, 2 Thess 1.8, Revelation 20.12-15 are all true.

(4.00 from 1 review)
The Jews reject Jesus, saying He is a false Messiah. Those of us who are Christians say Jesus is God - note John 1. 1-14, Romans 9.5, Colossians 2. 8-10, 1 Tim 3. 16, Psalm 2, Isaiah 9.6, Zechariah 12.10, Psalm 22 etc. If John 1.1-14 is trustworthy then you would have to assume John 15. 6 is trustworthy - those who do not abide in Christ are like sticks which are thrown into the flames.
