About the author (1999)

Thomas Kinkade was born in Sacramento, California in 1958. He spent one summer on a sketching tour with a college friend and afterwards produced the instructional book, The Artist's Guide to Sketching. The book's success landed the two artists at Ralph Bakshi Studios to create background art for the animation feature, Fire and Ice. After the film, Kinkade began earning a living as a painter and is now one of America's most collected living artists. He has also written numerous books including Lightposts for Living and the Cape Light series.

Dr. Calvin Miller, professor of preaching and pastoral studies at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, received his D. M. from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and has served on the editorial boards of such publications as "Leadership Magazine" and "Preaching Magazine". An accomplished author of more than forty books -- including the popular Singer trilogy, "The Unchained Soul", and "The Book of Jesus" -- Calvin Miller brings awe-inspiring artistry to the craft of writing.
