was an ordained minister, Bible teacher, editor and author. In his life he led 2 to 3 guided tours and pilgrimages annually, including 25 to Israel, to Jordan, Egypt, Greece, Italy and Turkey. On his tours, he saw children’s books based on the Old Testament but not the New Testament so he saw a need for these books and began writing these authentic, historically-accurate Gospel stories for children.
