Yes, after 40 years, I am selling my beloved 1971 Plymouth Duster.

Apologetics and Theology

My active Christian walk began during the Jesus Revolution of the early 70's, which led to being a pulpit preacher for a year in Socorro, a year as the rural Socorro county jail chaplain, helping start a Christian coffeehouse on the New Mexico Tech campus, and playing the role of Jesus in amateur skits.

Since 1977, I developed adult Bible studies for local United Methodist, Assembly of God, and Southern Baptist churches. I joined in 1977 and became General Secretary for the Bible Study Groups at LLNL (1979-2006, 28 years in a one-year role). Since 2005, I lead the local AWANA high school program serving area churches.

My written material is influenced by many theologically traditional (more so than less so) apologists who defend traditional Judeo-Christian faith. Apologist logic has helped many honest skeptics. My journey transcends typical boundaries and focus on core traditional faith. As John Wesley said, “If your heart is as my heart, lend me your hand.”
