    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a second-generation Christian fortunate enough to have grown up in a Christian home with great parents. I have been a writer and editor with Victory In Grace Ministries for 8 years. I've been happily married to Angela for almost 5 years and we have a beautiful, little daughter, Grace, who is the light of our lives. Writing is my first passion, but it is closely followed by preaching and teaching the Bible. I'm a huge fan of the Cubs and Bears and love to play golf. I also dabble in politics from time to time.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  As a second-generation Christian, I've seen so many young people walk away from the church. Various polls have shown that between 75-88% of evangelical teens abandon their faith. This bothers me and I think one of the reasons is that teens just don't see the reality of the Christian faith. My goal with this book is to help teens understand that God, in His Word, speaks to them, in their situation, in their world. The Bible is full of stories of young people--40 in fact--whose life dramas are not much different than teen today.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  To help Christian teens understand that there really were guys and girls like them in the Bible and that the stories God included in His Word can provide them answers to some of their really tough questions.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I read a wide variety of Christian authors, some from today and some from hundreds of years ago. I really like all of the stuff Joshua Harris has written. I think he is open and honest and biblical in approaching some of the difficult issues that face young people. I also enjoy wise men like Warren Wiersbe and Charles Ryrie. I think Mark Buchanan and Phil Yancey are phenomenal wordsmiths, even if I don't always agree with their conclusions. Randy Alcorn's, Heaven is a great book. And of course, my pastor, Dr. James A. Scudder has been my primary spiritual influence.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  The Bible is not just a book full of stories of old men and woman. There are many young people who faced enormous challenges, temptations, and struggles. God put these stories in the Bible for a reason, so every generation of young people could learn and grow. God cares about every young person and doesn't want any of them to suffer the consequences of going their own way.
