Dr. Mike Williamsonhas been my friend and colleague for more than fifty years. We were roommates in college and then served for a decade as professors at the University of Southern California. What I appreciate most about Mike is his lifelong commitment to Jesus Christ. I have never seen him compromise his faith in any regard. Now, Mike has turned his talents to writing poetry that is based entirely on Scripture. I wish him well in this endeavor. It is a pleasure to call Mike Williamson my friend.
