"I prefer the NASB since taking two years of Greek in seminary. I have found it to be the most literal translation of the original language. All translations do veer off from literally translating word for word, because sometimes this will not convey…"
"Question 4: I really like the Song of the Meadowlark cover. The colors are so vivid and make me think there will be a powerful story inside. I also like that the setting, both time and place, can be discerned. "

"My impressions of Las Vegas are from afar, having never visited. What I "know" is what I have seen in the movies. It strikes me as a "pretend" kind of place. Hotel owners have tried to make it a fantasy world, and escape from…"
"Q1: My mentor Marilyn told me this spring: I never teach Scripture until I have allowed it to sift through me for six months. With her remark, I realized much of my studying of the Bible had been with teaching it in mind. I was studying for others.…"

"I retreat a few steps from the world: onto my own back porch. It's a place where I can't hear the phone or anything else happening inside-- just the quiet of wind in the trees and birds singing. It's the place where I can be still--…"
"I live in Maryland, where summers are hot and often unbearable. I often think about those who lived here during the time period of your book. No air conditioning, and wrapped in layer upon layer of clothing. How did they survive the heat?? It must…"
"I do reread books, mostly novels. I tend to hang on to favorite authors. As for non-fiction, if they are valuable in their content, I keep them for future reference. Those books that I won't reuse usually end up in the Goodwill pile. Maybe…"
"I would love to contribute non fiction articles, with biblical content.
I have a book coming out with Thomas Nelson on the conversations Jesus had with women (in February). I could write one or a series of articles on this topic. Any interest? I…"

I LOVE Book club. I’m passionate about getting the word out about Christian authors and their books to book clubs.
