Gathering Over Jerusalem - a book about the end times, 2003. Available at Amazon.com - Click here: Amazon.com   When is Jesus coming back? For over 2,000 years we have heard people shouting on the street corner that Jesus is coming soon. Is it possible that something has changed and he might actually come back soon? I start off by explaining how we are indeed in the last times and that Jesus will return, in the Second Coming, in our lifetime! Exciting. And if that is true, it will inform everything you do and the decisions you will make. It will also make you more aware of current events leading up to the end times, because then you will know how they will affect your personally.

 
 
 

My 2007 doctoral dissertation, Leadership Paradigms in Chaplaincy, speaks about the leadership challenges facing a group of people whose primary purpose is to be loving, open, forgiving, compassionate, and a healing presence to others in tough situations. The personality type drawn to healing ministry seldom makes a good transition to leader of the hospital or hospice Spiritual Care Department. These aspiring leaders often lack the business skills and business people skills and training necessary to lead effectively. The book is divided into three sections: The history of chaplaincy from a leadership perspective, general chaplaincy leadership issues, then relevant issues and the work of chaplains as related to leadership.

The Stars are My Friends - A guide to stargazing   In 1985 I wrote a book on astronomy, specifically, stargazing. It is a very simple guide for learning to identify the constellations and stars with stories about how the constellations and stars got their names. At that time we lived in the Mojave Desert, 30 miles north of Barstow. It was a stargazer's paradise; and on a moonless night, the stars were so clear and bright, you could even see your shadow! I am rewriting it now, but from a Christian perspective. I hope to finish the new guide soon. Book cover art of "Lawrence of Arabia."
