Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Southeastern Kentucky. To be more specific, I grew up in a small town called Corbin. For me, the location of my raising was not as significant a factor as was my heredity. I am a fourth generation Pentecostal on both sides of my family. My grandfather on my dad's side, George Edward Prewitt, was a preacher in the Church of God Mountain Assembly, and on my mother's side, my great grandfather, Daniel Thomas was full fledged Pentecostal preacher in the year 1896. This heritage has, without question, influenced the way I see the world. Even though my theological studies have brought questions to the basic foundation, they have only brought me to increasingly hold to the basic beliefs of early Pentecostals.
What do you read for pleasure?
My wife and I usually read biographies (especially autobiographies if we can get our hands on them) of ministers, missionaries, and revivalists. These readings have made a significant impact on the way we think about ministry, evangelism, and even the way we live our lives. Not to mention, they are often thrilling with such powerful testimonies of the power of God.

It has been said that the Church spends more time bickering over doctrine than winning souls, yet without sound doctrine, the Apostle Paul tells us that the body of Christ will be “tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” How important is the doctrine of the Inspiration of Scripture?
The key to revival in the modern church is the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.
