New book on the way: “Untwisting Scriptures”

I’ve been hiding in a hole lately, working on the manuscript for this book. While I’ve been working on it, I’ve neglected many emails and most of my housekeeping.

But I’m excited to say it’s almost done! I’ll be addressing topics I’ve addressed in blog posts before, but completely reworked, simplified, and expanded. I had to take a hard look at teachings that had been given by respected speakers and writers.


It’s a short book so as not to overwhelm readers, with familiar topics including giving up your rights (and why you shouldn’t), bitterness and roots of bitterness (and what they really are), and taking up offenses (and why you should), addressing the Scriptures that each argument uses and showing what they really mean. Ultimately, I pray that it will be a book that will be one more means to help Christians live in the fullness of who they really are in Christ.

Untwisting Scriptures will be published by Justice Keepers Publishing, the publishing arm of Jeff Crippen’s A Cry for Justice ministry. I hope it will be the first book of several, to help Untwist more Scriptures for people who have experienced the Scripture Twistings.

But for now, the manuscript is in the hands of its pre-readers (some of whom have already given me extremely helpful feedback), and I’m off to try to convince my email correspondents that no I haven’t kicked the bucket.

And to go buy some Magic Scrubbers.
