About the Book

The Bible studies I chose to do in answer to the request of my first congregation out of seminary sought to present a serious, somewhat scholarly approach to the interested among my parishioners. In every case, I took a book to study, assuming that it was written to be read from the beginning, and to make sense to the reader in that format. I was most interested in finding what the author or compiler or editor, as the case may be, sought to convey. I have found the studies of value to me personally and felt that they were generally well received as I led them. Revisiting these studies now finds them again of value to me. I hope they prove to be so for you as well.

About the Author

I am a retired minister from the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) living in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. During the course of my ministry, I developed a variety of Bible Studies that, in turn, I led with a group. The impetus for the work came from a request during the first summer I was in my first church after seminary, 1976. I chose to do a study on 1 Peter, a book about which I knew almost nothing. That and succeeding studies proved to be exceedingly helpful in my growth in ministry and were reasonably well attended at the time. I now live quietly in retirement with my wife of forty-seven years, two dogs, and a variety of cats on a ridge in the country.
