Thanks, but I never intended to be an author, it just sort of came about from listening to Dr. Walter Martin saying that if one is going to deal with a cultist, one needs to define terms first because cultists always have their own private language (different meanings stuffed into ordinary words). And the next step that resulted in the first version of my book (34 pages) was written as my own guide for teaching 2x2ism in a cult study within a church Sunday Service. Later I sent that booklet to a 2x2 ministry in Spokan asking that they evaluate it, and they shipped it off immediately to the people wh soon called me wanting to publish it - at the time of that call I had already begun a re-write because a Worker in trouble read that booklet for three days straight, and when he was asked to meet with me at my church, he replied, “No. I’m already too confused.” And so I figured that if someone so desperately needing the real 2x2 history info was “confused” after three days with my booklet, it needed far more than it had – it ended up at something like 450 pages of manuscript that was eventually pared down to its present 36-something pages through a whole year of much needed editing. The book is, like most books, a work of far more than an author. Mine had a group of Christians who proofread and made suggestions, without which group the book would never have been published – I actually turned the manuscripts over to the publisher asking the publisher to go ahead but to not put my name on it due to some former 2x2 edit suggestions that aimed at stripping me right out of it – one last straw suggestion from a former 2x2 suggested deletion of the Worker’s claim to be “the Word made flesh” because that editor claimed to have never heard a Worker say such a thing. That was right before the eyes in the manuscript in the form of a quotation of a Worker making that very claim, and so it pushed me over the edge of frustration to have a ‘editor’ who obviously had trouble reading. It was the group of Christians who encouraged me to publish as author, showing me that in fact my section of theology did tend to separate the three persons of the one God too much. So now that these things are said for the first time publicly, you may know that my book is not just my book – it belongs to a whole lot of people, including a very patient publisher. I only wrote it.
I do remember that wedding in Ontario, but the newspaper report of it is inaccurate - it says that the couple homeymooned in Northern Ontario. The couple wanted me to travel with them to Quebec with one of the bride's maids, a lovely girl who was from Quebec and traveling home with the couple doing the transporting of her. It was the first time I ever heard of a best man going on the honeymoon --
