Tell us a little about yourself. I teach systematic theology at Columbia International University Seminary and School of Missions (we have very large sweatshirts) in Columbia, SC. This is my sixth book. My wife and I will celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary this June. We have two adult children. I am a serious tennis and table tennis player.
What was your motivation behind this project? The Christian's dual enemies -- sin and its diabolical forerunner temptation -- can be resisted and overcome. The Bible, God's Word, provides specific strategies to help the believer live the victorious Christian life.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Jesus paid for our sins on the cross and all who receive Him as Savior are completely forgiven. But there is still a battle on hand. Practical advice and illustrations from the book will assist the Christian in spiritual growth.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I became more aware of the subtlety of temptation and the ruining effects of sin. We have three enemies: the world, the flesh, and the devil. I find that often my own worst enemy is . . . me.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? C.S. Lewis is a great encouragement to me, especially in a work like "The Screwtape Letters." I've also found Philip Yancey quite helpful in my own Christian growth. My wife Linda is my greatest support.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: My passion is to make Christian theology practical and understandable. I often tell my seminary students: "Theology is not boring. Theologians are boring." I try not to bore God's people with God's Word -- or with my words.
