Tell us a little about yourself. I've loved going to camps most of my life. As a kid I went to Westminister Woods, Calvin Crest, Mt. Hermon, Woodleaf and others. As a Young Life leader and youth pastor I've taken kids to some of those camps along with Forest Home, Shamineau and Hume Lake. So it was nice to be able to send Bill and Nick off to camp.
What was your motivation behind this project? There is much controversy about this world came to be. I thought it was important to bring kids back to Genesis 1 & 2 for a reminder that the important thing is that God is the one who made the world and us.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Grow in appreciation of God as Creator. (This is also the first Bill book where a character decides to follow Jesus. With the Spirit's leading, perhaps some young readers will make the same choice.)
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? It was fun to dedicate this book to my parents, who sent me off to camp many times, and always took me back.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Some of my favorite books arguing for God as Creator: C. S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity", Lee Stobel's "The Case for a Creator", Phillip Johnson's "Darwin on Trial", Michael Behe's "The Black Box" among others.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Camp is cool. If you find one that honors Jesus, your experience will be even cooler.
