Meet the Author

Originally from the UK, Duncan Heaster is pastor of a large church in Riga, Latvia. Having written over 20 books and having edited "Gospel News" magazine for over 20 years, Duncan says that he sees his writing and preaching as merely sowing seed- God's seed, insofar as his writing is a presentation of God's word, the Bible. He feels unable to change anyone by his own argument or words- but is rather simply presenting to them the direct teaching of the Bible, stripped of all human theology and tradition. This has led him to reject popular Christian doctrines such as the trinity, immortal soul, a personal devil, hell as a place of eternal fire. But in their place he presents the real Christ, as Son of God, son of man, Lord and Saviour; who has opened the way to resurrection from the dead in God's Kingdom. Duncan Heaster is married to Cindy and they have a young family. They are well known in the Christadelphian movement, and operate Carelinks Ministries.

    Not the Basics I read; from Genesis to Revelation

    Know your Bible, by reading and studying - the Bible. "Bible Basics" was very interesting, but had some teaching that does not correlate to basic Bible teachings. Not just what I have learned from years of church attendance, but from what I have learned from the Bible in the many years I have read and studied the sacred writings myself. Know your Bible for yourself.

    So, what is wrong with nook sex?

    It is not like real life sex. You have to be a lot more careful in real life.
