Light in the Darkness 1

I’m concerned. Very concerned. Dark clouds are rapidly approaching Western civilization, and we’re standing on the verge of one of the greatest storms in modern history. We’re facing acts of terror that we thought had been left in the Dark Ages. We’re witnessing immorality march down Main Street and proclaim its purity, while the masses […]

The Safe Place

A few weeks ago, I returned from a major outreach event in India. God had blessed and many people from non-Christian backgrounds came to Christ. The experience gave me courage to write about penetrating the darkness in my e-book, God’s Glory in the Darkness. I encouraged Christians not to fear the darkness, but penetrate it. […]

Prayer in the Darkness 1

As pictures of gruesome beheadings continue to make their way on to the Internet and in our television sets, one can’t help but wonder if there is any hope for modern civilization. Who would have dreamed that the world would see such barbarianism in the 21st century? The darkness seems to be growing exponentially. Once […]

Light in the Darkness

Prior to September 11, 2001, most Americans had never considered that people in other parts of the world would commandeer commercial jets into American buildings, killing thousands of innocent people. On August 19, 2014, Americans received another shock that sent ripples throughout the world. American journalist, James Foley had been brutally murdered and decapitated. His […]

Preaching in the Devil’s Playground

When I wrote Twice a Slave, I didn’t realize how relevant much of the story would be to what is transpiring in our world at this moment. In the novel, I wrote about Joseph going into what had been dubbed The Devil’s Playground. People were fearful of the area because it was inhabited by “outlaws, […]

Crossing Rivers

I’ve often wondered what Moses thought when he gazed at the Red Sea or what Joshua felt when he looked at the Jordan River. What was the Apostle Paul sensing when he saw the Mediterranean Sea? It may have been the same feeling that Joseph Willis had when he peered at the Mississippi River. Major […]

The Cane Ridge Revival – Part 2

During the late 1700s, many people wondered if the new nation would survive. The United States went down a road that had never been travelled. It was a grand experiment of politics, freedom, and faith. Many historians believe that the First Great [Spiritual] Awakening produced the desire for freedom, brought unity to the people, and […]

The Cane Ridge Revival – Part 1

What does 1798 have in common with 2014? More than you might think – at least in America. Many Christians bemoan the situation we face today, but it’s not too unlike the circumstances of the church shortly after we established our nation and declared our freedom. Two friends, Bill Elliff and Byron Paulus, have just […]

The Reverend Devil

I included one of the most despicable characters in American history in my book, Twice a Slave. I’d never heard of him until I did research on my family history. His father was a minister, and his mother a prostitute. He despised his father, and learned thievery from his mother. While she was doing business […]
