About the Book

Listen carefully. Do you hear it? Ever so low; so low you can hardly perceive the sound. But if you have ears to hear, a small smile will soon invade your frown. As the trumpet sounds, just a little bit louder, the smile grows commensurately, and you wait with anxious joy for that day; the day when the angels of God blow a thousand trumpets announcing the second coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus of Nazareth – The Christ. This book is devoted to telling the story of the role played by trumpets as revealed in sacred Scripture. And as that story unfolds, our endeavor will be to recognize and emphasize those occasions when trumpets are significantly associated with important biblical themes and truths, particularly if these themes and truths tend to lead us to a fuller understanding and appreciation of our God – Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

About the Author

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the author is eighty-three years of age as of this writing. Frank is a veteran of the Korean War, having served fourteen months there as a member of the Army Security Agency. In 1975, after a career lasting twenty years, Frank retired as a lieutenant from the New York City Police Department. He first put pen to paper late in life when his daughter Catherine and her husband Tom presented him with a computer on his seventieth birthday. Softly Now the Trumpet is his fifth book. The first two books were autobiographical; the next two were about Jesus, as is this one. Frank says that if he lives long enough to write another book, it too will be about Jesus. “There is no better, more interesting person or subject matter to spend words on than Jesus, the humble son of a humble carpenter. Jesus is the perfect man to emulate, and the perfect God to worship.”
