If you found "The Shack" interesting, you will find "The Poultice" even more so Dr. Suttles offers a current Christian apologetic, an explanation of deeply held beliefs which come from a lifetime of cross cultural ministry and work in the field of appropriate technology. His perspective combines years of ministry from Haiti to French Guiana to Mexico to India and Romania with studies in cultural anthropology and industrial technology as well as theology. His heartfelt thoughts of his father, an old, Southern minister - builder are woven together in a lifetime fascination with the study of comparative religions and cultures. The resultant apologetic results in a unique, challenging series of answers to some of life's most difficult questions today. It challenges the church to re-examine its purpose for being and re-establish itself on a new covenant of grace and love. It poses a challenge to the political, educational, social, and physical sciences. "The Poultice" is a well thought out, revealing commentary on time and eternity to anyone who is searching for more understanding and a reason for our existence here on planet Earth. Dr. Suttles was born and raised in Elberton, Ga. His bi-vocational pastor-builder father instilled in him a love for technology and theology. A varied education in the fields of industrial technology, missiology, master of divinity and doctor of ministry prepared him for a life of cross cultural ministry planting churches and doing appropriate technology development work. He and his wife, Patsy, have worked around the world, from Haiti to French Guiana, to Mexico, India and Romania. He has taught on the college level and has been pastor of several churches. Currently he works for a construction management firm and enjoys his two children and two grandchildren in the Elberton area.
