I have been a pastor and Bible teacher for more than thirty years. From experience I know that, for the most part, the church in America has lost its genuine spiritual life and mission: to make disciples. Church activity is a poor substitute, rather than face the hard truth: none of this flurry of activities seem to be making a difference. Living in Fayetteville, North Carolina, I have had the chance to observe the church multiculturaly. Magdalene and I founded the Bread of Life Bible Institute, a nontraditional Bible college where our mission is to equip the students to go back to their communities and churches to help make their church relevant to this culture and society. Books I have previously written include How Should We Then Live, Behold the Man, The Blood Runs through It, Drawn Away, and Give Me Jesus.
