As a college professor of investment courses and an investment advisor for 45 years, I slowly began to develop an appreciation for precious metals—and especially gold.
During this same period of time, my spiritual maturity was likewise increasing. Eventually these two areas of special interest in my life began to merge, with each reinforcing the other. About 20 years ago I wanted to write this book, but the Holy Spirit had other plans. The idea of writing this book bobbled up again about five years ago. The Holy Spirit again said “No.” Recently I was shocked to hear a pastor’s message about the elderly Moses and God’s directive: “Go Forward!” (Exodus 14:15-16). This book is the product, as a result of that sermon.
