The author was a design engineer for IBM during the sixties and seventies. He was involved with advanced technology pointing to new products, printers, copiers, imaging, and ways of placing information on paper. In 1965, he was transferred to the new Boulder plant, located in Niwot, Colorado. Niwot was named for an Indian chief and translates to ‘left handed.’
It was here that his life changed forever.
One cold January morning, a minister of the Gospel visited. Pastor James Maxwell introduced him, his wife, and son into receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior. They were born-again. He was thirty-eight years old and his so-called intellectual, engineering background made him very skeptical. Diligent study soon convinced him the Bible was the inerrant truth. Continued work-study lead him to understand God’s wonderful word more, and he took early retirement from IBM to attend Reformed Seminary in Clinton, MS. In 1987 he graduated with a Master of Divinity from the Reformed Seminary. He went on to minister in the Presbyterian Church in America for over twenty-seven years in Sardis, Mississippi.
