Samuel Tummala hails from the great nation of India. He has been married for 8 years now and is the proud father of two beautiful girls. He accepted Christ as his personal savior in 1998 and calls his spiritual journey, ‘interesting’. After the completion of his formal studies in theology, he realized that just a functional knowledge of the Bible was not going to be sufficient if Christ was to be effectively presented in the marketplace. There was a need for not just a technical but also the historical and traditional understanding of the Bible. He realized that this was the only way to fully understand, interpret and appreciate the Bible truly, as it was meant to be. This became the impetus for all his future efforts to learn more from the Bible.
