Lynn Fowler cannot remember a time when she did not write. Her father, who was a poet and freelance writer, instilled in her a love for the written word, and from her earliest years she was putting thoughts on paper.
After a difficult childhood and an early marriage, Lynn became caught up in spiritualism, from which she was dramatically saved in December 1974. The day she was saved the Lord called her to preach, and within six weeks she had started studying at Sydney Missionary and Bible College. Her full salvation testimony can be found at her web site, http://lynnbfowler.com/testimony
From that point on most of Lynn's writing was focused on Christian life, and she had a number of articles and poems published in Christian magazines in Australia, and a few overseas. In 1990 her children's book, A Crazy Alphabet, was published in Australia and the USA, and was nominated for the Children's Book of the Year Award in Australia. She has published two other Christian books: My Little Chats With God, a collection of Bible meditations; and Called To Battle, a manual of spiritual warfare.
First ordained in 1983, Lynn briefly laid down her credentials in the mid-90s due to personal circumstances. She was re-ordained in 1998. Over the years she has been involved in various pioneering situations and itinerant ministry, and since 1989 had made numerous short-term missions trips.
Lynn holds two diplomas and a Bachelor of Theology degree, and in 2013 was awarded an honorary Doctorate in Ministry from St Andrews Theological College and Seminary, India, in recognition of 38 years of ministry.
With a passion to see people “set on fire” for Jesus Christ and for His Kingdom, Lynn likes to refer to herself as a “spiritual pyromaniac.”
Lynn has two adult sons and five grandchildren. She lives alone in a tiny country town in Victoria, Australia.
God is calling His people to a kind of Christianity that is vastly different from what we see in most of the church today. This book challenges us to build relationships with God, each other and the world that are real in their source, radical in their implementation and revolutionary in their outcome.
