Tell us a little about yourself. I am a retired professor of English and former journalist, editor, New Age cult member, small group leader, and elder. I am presently a Bible teacher and Christian author. I have written two books concerned with spirituality and am working on a third. I live with my wife, Virginia, in Tucson, Arizona.
What was your motivation behind this project? My motivation for this project was my acute awareness of spiritual deception and the need for spiritual discernment among many Christians.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope they will develop spiritual discernment skills that will enable them to recognize and correct demonic deception and seeds of apostasy presently infiltrating the church. This will remove confusion about controversial teachings and practices, clarify what the Bible says about these things, and provide useful concepts and examples for teaching and preaching.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I was a New Age cult member for ten years. This exposure to false teachings, scripture twisting and New Age counterfeits, gave me unique insight and expertise in these areas. I have been influenced and inspired most strongly by Dave Hunt, Hank Hanegraaff, John Ankerberg, Ron Carlson, David Wilkerson, and David Jeremiah.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The Spiritual Discernment Guide is easy to understand and use, written in a clear, engaging style with many personal anecdotes and specific examples. It is based on my own real-life experience plus many years of Bible study, research and prayer. It is scripturally based, supported by relevant verses, applied with practical insight. And it is inspirational, presenting an impassioned challenge to boldly stand against deviant doctrines and spiritually dangerous teachings.
