Tell us a little about yourself. I am a sinner saved by the grace of Jesus Christ! I am blessed to be the husband of my high school sweetheart (Karen), and together we have four grown children and more than a dozen grandchildren. I serve as a vice-president at an amazing Christian ministry known as Answers in Genesis, where I work primarily with the teams that create the award-winning "Answers" magazine and distribute the "Answers with Ken Ham" daily radio broadcast, as well as overseeing the marketing of many books and visual media resources. To keep things fun and everyone laughing, I enjoy standing on my head at times and places that tend to be totally unexpected! ...Whoever said Christians are supposed to be stodgy and boring!
What was your motivation behind this project? For most of my adult life I've wished I knew more about how all the main people and events of the Bible--the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation--fit together. I had attended church all my life and knew the New Testament well, plus I had the first chapters of Genesis down well too, but I was frustrated that I'd never really been taught about how all the rest of the Bible connected the beginning, to the New Testament and the future return of Christ. Although I'd read the Bible and Christian books to my children, and though I'd been a Sunday school teacher, deacon and small group leader in my church, there were big gaps in my understanding, and that inhibited my willingness and ability to truly lead my family spiritually. At my 50th birthday, with my first grandchild now born, I finally realized it was time to make a very serious Bible study my #1 priority for my evening and weekend time. That led to lots of great things, including this book!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My hope is that parents will see how easy it is to get the big picture of Scripture, and by reading this chronological overview of the Bible, they will be inspired to more readily talk with one-another and with their family about the things that God has done. Because God sent his only son, Jesus, to die for our sins and restore the broken relationship that separates us from eternity in Heaven with Him. When we see how all the pieces of the big-Bible-jigsaw-puzzle fit together, life makes sense and the hope and peace we seek for our present situations are so much easier for us to benefit from.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Although I had been going to church for many years, and prayed daily, my relationship with my Savior Jesus was more head than heart. I have grown so very much deeper in my heartfelt love for God and Jesus through this amazing project. And frankly my already good relationship with my lifelong sweetheart, my wife, has gone to a new level--spiritually, emotionally, and more. The implications of having a solid handle on the big picture of the Bible and being assured by the many faith-facts that confirm the Bible is true,, are life-changing. I'm even closer to my children, their spouses, and all our grandchildren. I'm not a new believer, but I am a new man. Ask my wife!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Huge influences have been my own parents in so many ways throughout my life, plus the pastor of the church where my wife and I grew up, and the ministry of my friend and co-laborer Ken Ham (of the Creation Museum, the Ark Encounter, and Answers in Genesis). My parents introduced me Christianity. Ken and others have helped me to get the big picture that makes the Bible so much more applicable to everyday life--especially in the present anti-Christian culture that we live.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I love the way the two artists associated with this project were able to create illustrations that are appreciated by adults as well teens. Even little kids love them. This book goes where others that are too stodgy cannot. It reaches multiple ages and groups within society in the way that "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" have done on secular TV. Read, relax, and enjoy being carried through the timeline of the Bible in a way you've probably never experience from sermons and lectures!
