Finding the Power to Believe: a study in Philippians by David Bergsland
This is the first in a series of Bible studies for the new believer, young Christian getting serious, or group looking to get serious about the Lord. The study assumes that scripture is inspired by God and that it can teach us how to live a powerful, victorious life in Jesus. Everything is referenced and the core meaning of the scriptures is revealed. Have a wonderful time exploring Philippians.
As a hippie in the late 1960s, and a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a BFA in Printmaking, he wears the title of Jesus Freak proudly. David has been an artist and designer since 1967 (as far as he can recall that far in the distant past). He actually started his design career working for an occult publisher in St. Paul. He spent several wasted years as an ego-maniacal heathen fine artist until he found his true calling as a creative called by God to produce beauty for the kingdom. That has not been a straight or easy path. Through the years he has tried many media, produced thousands of pieces (most that were pure trash) and taught hundreds of students practical graphic design & digital publishing in 2-year colleges. In recent years he has pulled out of the public arena entirely. Though not a hermit, he is certainly a recluse, living in a small 2-story, brick home that is over a hundred twenty five years old on a tree-lined street in Mankato, Minnesota. Mainly he writes now, of his experiences and beliefs. Increasingly, he writes fiction.
