WHY READ GOD’S WORD?   As an eighteen-year-old student at Liberty University in August of 1989, I made a commitment to Jesus to read my Bible ten chapters a day until I had read it a hundred times.   What I learned is, there are eleven hundred and eighty-nine chapters in the Bible. Nine hundred and twenty-nine in the Old Testament and two hundred and sixty chapters in the New Testament. That means you will spend three-fourths of your time… Read more

WHY DID YOU PUBLISH THE 23 BOOK?   The story that frames the background of the 23 book began officially in 2001. God awoke me and asked me to do something that if I would have known at the time what it was going to cost me, I may have joined Jonah in running the opposite direction.
