I Need Your Help…

August 15, 2012

I love to see many expressions of this teaching in the body of Christ. The more the better!

And I would like to see my part in this contribution reach a far greater audience.

I need your help to accomplish this.

As you know, my book Death of the Modern SuperHero : How Grace Breaks our Rules has been out for over one year. The early results have been wonderful.
