About

 I am now ready to write my second book, GP – God’s Promise 

Just as my first book, Contradict – They Can’t All Be True, was a response to the popular call for religious pluralism found in the Coexist bumper sticker, with GP – God’s Promise, I will also address another popular image of modern culture – the rainbow. The image of the rainbow has become so closely tied to homosexual practices that many Christians shy away from the use of rainbow imagery or colors to avoid promoting behavior that Scripture states to be sinful. This avoidance does not have to be the case, and it should not be the case.  The Bible prominently features a rainbow as a sign of a promise that God made with all living creatures after he destroyed the world via a flood. The biblical narrative of Noah and the rainbow extends beyond Genesis to the end of this age in some fascinating ways that are not often mentioned or even realized in most Christian circles. In GP – God’s Promise I will piece together this complete narrative found in God’s Word. I will also build a winsome and respectful response that the Church can use to answer the many questions and objections that arise against the Bible and the character of God because of the world's opinions concerning his will for his creation and his design of sexuality and marriage. 

Kickstarter funds will cover: my time writing and researching, paying for an editor, costs in finding an agent or publisher, or costs of self-publishing, website hosting fees, and overhead costs of stickers, books, and advertising.  

My first book, Contradict – They Can’t All Be True, was published in January, 2014. It has been well received across denominational lines with over 2,000 copies sold. 

Reviews for Contradict – They Can’t All Be True:

This is a solid book apologetically, theologically, and practically. I pray it will open the eyes of many believers to the importance of evangelizing in a pluralistic age.” Matt Manry, The Gospel Coalition

“Overall, this is an excellent book with many fascinating insights, new ways of looking at things, cogent arguments, and profound ideas presented in a style that anyone can understand (and not just academics looking to impress each other), and written by an author who clearly has a deep sense of integrity, humility, and wisdom! I look forward to reading it a second time, as there's a lot packed in here and much to learn!”Joe Bongiorno, Owner and Operator at The Royal Publisher of Oz

“This book is a display of the genius of the Holy Spirit flowing through one of His vessels. What powerful logic! What persuasive wisdom! What undeniable truth is shared pointing to the LORD Jesus Christ as "the way, the truth and the life" (John 14:6). I highly recommend this book. It is highly engaging and written with respect to those of opposing views. It is not in the genre of "confrontational apologetics" but "loving appeal" to all to accept the Savior of the world.”Mike Shreve, CEO and Founder at Deeper Revelation Books

Risks and challenges

I have a following of 6,000+ people on my Facebook page for my first book. My Youtube channel, blog, and podcast all have a decent, but still very small following in the eyes of book publishers. In today's market, publishers in the Christian non-fiction market demand that their author's have a large platform to ensure they have a guaranteed number of book sells. Though my first book has been well received, its small 2,000 copy sells coupled with my small platform will make finding a publisher difficult. Because of these reasons, be aware that I will likely end up going a self-publishing route with this book.
