Joseph Torie

Biography

I write. It is important for me. I have little precious time left for most other things.
I have been writing for a few decades, first as a journalist, then as a freelance travel writer and finally, as a full fledge unknown writer. As the latter, I have supported myself doing odds jobs here and there, which I have enjoyed and from which I have learned lots.
I didn’t choose the writer's commercial path, although, I have considered it sometimes when my income was insufficient to cover my bare necessities: you know, the ideal that you can write what you want to say and support yourself at the same time. Maybe, it is still going to happen. I wouldn't mind.
However, I have found that not worrying about writing for profit keeps me uncompromised and allows me to say what I really think. I offer some of my books free to read. I hope these views will help you. They offer my take on things I have been interested in for decades and for which I have modeled and invested most of my life. I write about spiritual subjects, about Jesus and about intelligent design.
I am an old man and soon will leave this world. I have some other books on which I have worked for years, which may not be published yet here. You may find other articles, blog and stuff in my website.
My mom raised me a Catholic. My dad believed in the words of Jesus but was disappointed by some of the failings of the church and of many of their adherents to follow the simple clear-cut teachings of the Lord, which he tried to follow. In any case, both tried their best, within their human limitations, to love me and show me a path to follow. I didn’t follow. However, as I grew older my respect for their efforts grew exponentially. I partly dedicate these books to them and to their upbringing of generations of traditions mixed with faith and a desire to follow and do what’s right.
Above all, I feel compelled to write about the wonderful love of God for me, a sinner, and to His gracious offer of forgiveness in exchange for ONLY accepting His Grace and Love through Jesus, the Savior. I don't belong to any religious group, association or church. My wish is that you will somehow benefit from these words and that you will be encouraged in your own search for truth and meaning in this life and in the next. I trust some will.
Joe.
