What makes Gerry confident He is qualified to write on this theme?
He has extensively reflected upon, read the works of others, and for many years wrestled with and studied the Scriptures on this theme. He has found solid Biblical evidence for his conclusion of hope. He has agonized for most of his life over hell and understands the contradictions it brings upon the Christian faith.
Gerry asked himself and God, “Who am I to write such a book?” Then he recalled 1Co. 1:26-29, “God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise…that no flesh should glory in his presence.” KJV This along with Mt. 10:27 and 11:25 spurred him on.
Gerry has been involved in missions since 1986. He has served as a missionary in Mexico, the Philippines, and Senegal, West Africa, with Youth With A Mission (YWAM), The Luke Society, and Philippine Health Care Ministries. Since 2001, he has directed Dental Training For Missions in Brownsville Texas. Gerry trains missionaries in primary dental care. He and his wife, Denise, (of 30 years), have three daughters and two granddaughters.
“Knowing Gerry as a close friend, I can say that he has wrestled with God and his conscience over the issues presented in this book. Hope Beyond Hell is the result of many years of introspection, Bible study, and prayer. Gerry’s enthusiasm for what he has discovered is evident on every page. To read this book is to know the author.”
