Lou Poumakis is a retired electrical engineer. He practiced this profession until his retirement in 2002 but has been a serious student of God’s word since his conversion in 1974. He was ordained as elder in the Christian Reformed Church and later as minister in the Federation of Reformed Churches. Early on, he was attracted to the work of R. J. Rushdoony at Chalcedon Foundation where he discovered Postmillennialism and Christian Reconstruction. These doctrines reflected a truly Biblical Christian faith that possessed a dynamic that contrasted favorably with the passive outlook that predominated in what he had seen elsewhere. Faith on Earth? is primarily based on in- formation garnered from this source. Before writing Faith on Earth?, he published several articles relating God’s word to current events. He and his wife Joan, who have been married since 1955, now live in Florida. They have been blessed with two children, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
Lou Poumakis's book begins with Christ’s question, “When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Lk. 18:8). Faith is a big term. It means understanding that God is our great Father, Lord, and Redeemer. Faith defers to God in all things. Lou does an excellent job of stimulating our thinking of the world on Christ’s terms.
