About the author (2011)

Colin Baker lives in Australia's Northern Territory in the remote Aboriginal Homeland Community of Gawa. Gawa is a name well loved. It's origins are Macassan. It means 'Land of the King'. His experience at Gawa has been one of pioneering and gate-keeping, perseverance, patience and overcoming. He is committed to the glory of God as is reflected in his vision to facilitate an embracing of the Gospel of the Glory by God's people. His mandate is pictured in Ezekiel chapter one when viewed in the light of the fact that 'movement in the Spiritual Realm is by vision'. ...And that the Lord's Community is the vehicle that transports the throne and the One seated upon it into all the Earth.
