I have grown up and live in New Zealand - Aotearoa (the Land of the Long White Cloud), currently residing in Auckland, our largest city with a population around 2 million people. Around half of all New Zealanders live in Auckland. It is here that I can find the time to reflect on my faith and write.
It is the Bible and an intelligent and informed explanation of it's contents, that is the wind in the sails of the books I write. I am unashamedly evangelical or charismatic in my faith and my writings.
After finishing Theological College in New Zealand, I traveled to the Middle East to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, to glean a glimpse of the life he would have lived on this earth and soak in the ambiance of the world of Jesus and the glory of God's creations. This was for me a discovery of God and how important my Christian faith is for me, my family and my life.
I enjoy telling stories in my books, informing and educating you, the reader, on our journeys. The richness of the history of the biblical lands and the truth of the Bible has moved me to reach out in Discipleship Books Ministry, an ordinary person helping other ordinary people find their faith in Jesus Christ, our savior.
These books I have put on Amazon are the culmination of 20 years of research, discovery and worship in the Christian Church. In many ways, these books map my journey as a Christian coming to grips with the meaning of being a true follower of Christ, and how to be the best disciple of Jesus I can be.
I pray that these insights I reveal in my books can create the same positive enlightenment in you as they have in me.
The Incarnation of Jesus is the essence of the New Testament. God becoming a human being like us.
God's word to us, came in the form of person who was both God and human at the same time. One who people could love, listen to and touch.
Because Jesus came incarnate into our world Jesus could teach, love and touch and heal, real people.
This book looks at the different options God had. God could have written Jesus words on the clouds, for example, but God decided that sending Jesus as a baby in a manger was the most effective way for human beings to understand who God was and is.
The final chapter explores the implication of the incarnation for living a Christian life.
Jesus coming incarnate into our world which is a mixture of of love and hate. Honesty and dishonesty. Selfishness and sharing' is the most graphic example of what it means to be Christian.
A person, who like Jesus, is prepared to go incarnate into the lives of people in our extended family, the work-place, the community and the world.
Because Jesus came from heaven, incarnate into our world, we know so much more about what heaven is like, what God is like, what the angels are like and what is on God's heart.
