About Me

I am an author and a Bible teacher.  The Bible is — by far — my favorite book. I read it regularly in the original languages (Greek and Hebrew) and several literal English translations, frequently in the German (usually the Elberfelder) and the Greek OT (the Septuagint), and occasionally in the Latin, the Syriac, and Delitzsch’s Hebrew NT. My areas of study include Bible languages, eschatology (prophecy), apologetics, ancient history (with a particular interest in ancient catastrophism), and electric universe cosmology. Currently my wife, Nita, and I live in Harvey, ND, where I share in the ministry of the Word at Harvey Gospel Chapel. We have four children and ten grandchildren.

My life experiences are varied. I have been, among other things, an Airborne Ranger, a carpenter, a truck driver, a farm hand, a factory worker, a sawmill hand, a car salesman, an insurance salesman, a daytrader, a Jiffy Lube tech, and a propane truck driver. I designed and built a square-timber log home. I climbed Mt. Rainier once and Montana’s rugged Granite Peak three times.

I am a man of simple pleasures. I enjoy backpacking, hiking, campfires, mountains, sunrises and sunsets, thunderstorms, starry skies, northern lights, coffee, dark chocolate, reading, friends, and good conversation. My favorite genres of music include the whisper of the wind in the pines, the call of Canadian geese, the cry of the loon, the bugle of a bull elk,  hymns, worship music, and classical music.

Life sayings:
“One short life to be a good soldier; One long eternity to be a fulfilled human being.”
“Eyes wide open, brain engaged, heart on fire.”
“Athanasius contra mundum.”
