Tell us a little about yourself. I'm Professor of Biblical Studies at Northwestern College, Saint Paul, Minnesota.
What was your motivation behind this project? My friend, Tom Schreiner, and I collaborated in writing our book to be a pastoral encouragement to Christians, that they might persevere in faithfulness to Jesus Christ. We hope that our book will also be instructive to pastors and teachers, that they may grasp more fully, accurately, and sufficiently the gospel's call to persevere in faithfulness to Christ Jesus, so that they may faithfully instruct others from Scripture.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Our concern is pastoral. Thus, our desire is that all who read our book will not only become better instructed from Scripture concerning the necessity of perseverance but also that all will persevere in loyalty to Christ and find the fullness of assurance the gospel holds out to us who believe.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My wife, Lois, has been a great source of encouragement to me throughout our marriage. Together, we have poured our lives into our two sons who encourage our hearts with their perseverance in loyalty to Jesus Christ. Michael Card's lyrics give musical expression to so many of my Christian beliefs. Thanks, Michael Card, for providing musical and lyrical inspiration as I wrote my portions of "The Race Set Before Us." May the Lord use our book to encourage many to hold fast to the gospel of Jesus Christ that they might endure the trials and afflictions of this age and attain unto the crown of life and of righteousness in the age to come.
