About the Book

In her 1996 Essentials Collection, Dionne Warwick asks, “What’s it all about, Alfie?” Indeed, that is a key question. It’s the cry of a lost soul wondering how life, after chasing excesses that leave his soul in shambles, could have any meaning at all. More than just the title of a song written and made famous almost 60 years ago, the lyrics ask relevant questions haunting the hearts of the lost and searching among us still today.

Perspectives From the Choir Loft is a sometimes humorous, sometimes serious devotional book that isn’t afraid to ask why. Why do Christians act the way they do? Why is the Bible still relevant today? And, why are moose never mentioned in the Bible? Relevant questions all.

John Lennox, a Christian apologist, recently observed that the Church often does not do well with bringing people to Christ because it does not adequately answer their questions. Perspectives From the Choir Loft is a book designed to encourage thinking about and responding to pertinent questions in a way that breaks away from the usual tried and true approach. So, if you’re willing to spend a few moments thinking about new ways to respond to questions you thought you knew the answers to, then maybe you should consider gaining some new Perspectives From the Choir Loft!

About the Author

Convinced that life’s meaning extends primarily from a real and active relationship with Jesus Christ, Mark Wilken approaches his days as potential training grounds for learning how to be a blessing to others in this life. A 1982 (BS – Accounting) and 1983 (MBA) graduate of Oral Roberts University, Mark spent the first 30 plus years of his professional career in a variety of positions with a Fortune 500 company. After being diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s Disease in January 2011, he decided to retire early and pursue other adventures.
Throughout his life, Mark has learned that giving into the lives of others is one of the most meaningful endeavors one can pursue. Experience has taught him that even during seasons when life seems only to serve up curve balls, that ultimately, the love and faithfulness of God shines through. Perspectives From the Choir Loft is intended to reflect the heart of a Christian individual navigating through the uncharted and sometimes stormy seas of everyday life.
Currently residing in the Northeast Oklahoma, Mark and his wife, Leigh, have two children, a daughter-in-law and son-in-law, and two grandchildren.
