The X-Men Gospel

June 15, 2014 // 20 Comments

In all literature, there may be only five or six truly Great Stories but these few stories are told again and again, a thousand different ways.

I wrote my latest book by accident. It’s called The Hyper-Grace Gospel and it’s out today. You can find it on Amazon. My new book has an interesting back-story.

Before he was saved, Paul was a Pharisee (Php 3:5), and like any Pharisee he would’ve prayed the prayer seen on the left (source: Encyclopedia Talmudit, Vol.4, Jerusalem 1956, p.371).

Like me, you probably have friends and family who’ve grown up in the church but who have since wandered away.
