Tell us a little about yourself. I am married for more than 30 years, have three children and three grandchildren. I am a licensed physician, specialist in Ob/Gyn. I serve as a professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and am the Medical Director at A Woman's Choice Pregnancy Resource Center.
What was your motivation behind this project? I have been actively involved in Sanctity of Life issues since medical school, and with the new attention surrounding Ru 486, partial birth abortion, parental rights and father's rights, I was stirred to try to paint an engaging drama about this issue. I wanted to deal fairly with the issue of abortion, sketching some of the true to life situations that can make decisions very difficult. Along with my coauthor on several projects, Sandra Glahn, we felt we could give an accurate voice to the controversy and stimulate some deep thought and meaningful conversation.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Hopefully, our readers will marvel at the wonder of human life and catch a glimpse of grace, forgiveness and the incredible gift of eternal life. The "reality" of the storyline should bring healing to some that have suffered personally or in their immediate family with the aftermath of abortion. Plus, for the unbeliever, or the "Pro- choice" believer, we hope to generate thought about viability arguments, and what constitutes a "human being" worthy of dignity and respect.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I was influenced medically by some of my colleagues in Obstetrics and Gynecology, plus some of the most compassionate and dedicated nurses anywhere. In the spiritual dimension, I've been encouraged by many that serve in the Crisis Pregnancy Centers. My favorite authors would include Augustine, Bernard of Clairvaux, John of the Cross, Calvin and some fine present day devotional writers.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The passion of False Positive centers on the value of each individual human life, made in the image of God. Not only the tiny unborn, but the value of the lives of the mothers in crisis pregnancies, plus the counselors and doctors that pour their lives into these dear people.
