With a "down to earth" writing style, and a very practical view of what an amazing life in Christ should look like, Tom will examine life in the kingdom of God, explore the ideas and questions above and much more, using the Bible, reason, logic, and truth. Simply, how can we become powerful followers of Christ now, using all the gifts God has given us, to become the children of God He's intended us to be, and to serve God on this earth in perhaps the greatest mission field in all of creation? All this with the greatest joy a life with God has to offer. And most important of all, to learn to love God with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength (Mark 12:30)!
Be ready to challenge and to be challenged. Be ready to see how God's word is to be used to give us great strength as His followers and to become everything we should be as His disciples, now!

About the Author
With the same thirst for truth, knowledge, and understanding, he took on the task of answering the �problems� he saw in Christianity before becoming a believer. What he found was not only were these �problems� answerable, but the answers were consistent with reality. The next problem he dealt with was the general apathy he saw within the Christian community itself. Realizing the great beauty and truth of life with God, this apathy and nominal attitude and general lack of understanding of the very faith Christians professed, was perplexing. His thought was, �Christians have it all! Why don�t they live with the joy and strength this faith gives?� This was the starting point of his writing �Be Like Christ: Exploring the Truth of Life in Christ�.
Tom�s heart is also for unbelievers in general and the Atheist community in particular. He�s seen both sides of the argument and understands where many of the difficulties lie.
Tom has taught Bible studies, Apologetics, Discipleship, and Evangelism at the local church level for over 10 years and served as the Director of Discipleship for his church. He has written detailed commentaries on John, 1st John, and Luke (not yet published).
