Tell us a little about yourself. I live in Tampa, Florida. I was raised by godly parents, but was drawn away by the allures of the world. But, praise be to God, for the Spirit turned my pleasure into misery and convicted me with a holy calling. By Gods amazing grace, my appetite for the knowledge of the holy felt insatiable. But, he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecc. 1:18). As I gazed into the perfect law of liberty (James 1:25), my eyes were further opened to my flawed estate and the desperate condition of the Church and this world. Now, I want to help as an ambassador to bring reconciliation.
What was your motivation behind this project? I perceived that the Church (as a network of many denominations) has drifted far from our biblical roots. Human traditions have distracted us; hollow ceremonies have dulled our minds; bureaucracy has weighed us down; unbelief has stolen our power; sin has undermined our reputation with hypocrisy; and, laziness has lulled us to sleep. Lets face it! Weve lost many from Generation X. And now, Generation Y is predominately disconnected. When I began BTS, I longed to see change. I still look for radical change. But, how will revival come? Power comes from the Holy Spirit working through the Holy Word of God. We must condemn our biblical literacy and make transformation our goal. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2). If the average Christian will get back into the Bible with a tender conscience, change will come. If parents will resume their role in the daily discipleship of their children, hope is justified.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Its my prayer that each person or family using Balancing the Sword will develop a comprehensive working knowledge of each biblical book. I also hope that your newly accumulated knowledge of the Holy One will lead to dynamic transformation so that you may better reflect the purity and wisdom of Christ.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? It took about 11 years to write Balancing the Sword. The work was done in layers. Each year of study brought new conviction. Accumulating the cross references unquestionably shed the greatest light upon my own understanding. Ive been also deeply stirred by the many quotations that I gathered about the Bibles greatness from more than two hundred famous historical figures.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? St. Augustine, Martin Luther, Matthew Henry, Charles H. Spurgeon, and many other colossal figures have blessed my life immensely.
