About the Author
At age eight, the author underwent a Shekinah light of God experience deeply implanting a love for Christ in his heart. Although this love never left, the experience faded in the rush of college followed by the excitement of the life of a tailhook pilot. Later, after the Navy, he trained as a physicist (MS) growing further from his early exposure to God. Then marriage and children, eight in all, distanced this childhood experience. The busyness of the large family mixed with a career in the emerging field of computers focused the author on American life with all its challenges.
This changed abruptly when he stumbled upon the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1973. The transformation was profound and staggering. A decade later, in spiritual warfare he discovered that God had gifted him with a real-time, anointing commune. The author has utilized this gift to write twelve books and multiple articles, mostly dealing with contemporary and future interactions between church and culture, most unpublished. The key teaching received from this commune is that the kingdom of God is approaching first as a Post-Millennium implementation. It is essential that the church be renewed for this task, divorcing itself from its present informal Pact of Cooperation with neo-paganism. Freed and united, the Christian church is to lead the way. The very existence of an advance human civilization is unknowingly dependent upon this Christian church renewal. To this end, the author is dedicated however humble his contributions might prove.
