"This book is a" non-denominational "telling of a walk with a miracle worker."

Presenting concepts designed to increase faith, "The Interview" takes place during a midwinter's walk at Shawnee Mission Park in Kansas. Overflowing with understandable biblical concepts, the clear message of this independently-rated 5-Star title is that what we do is far more important than our religious preference.

What the readers have said: "I am on page 56 of your manuscript - I can hardly bear to put it down and go to bed It is an incredible gift that you have given me to read this account. I believe that it will go on to be one of our times' great literary works. ..." ..". while I was pondering on some of the concepts of this book, I heard a voice say "this book is for those who want more out of their relationship from God than they currently do." "Through applying the lessons taught in this wonderful book, each day I have a closer and more pure relationship with God. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone desiring to know God better "

From the book: "For those who can be persuaded that neither amoebas nor people spontaneously generate, the fair-minded amongst us must concede that, in our beginning at least, there was only man and God. Organized religion came along later.

Today there still are those who do not trust in any other source besides God. By relying exclusively upon deity for both their instruction and their prosperity, they become just like the ones who wrote, or who inspired others to write, the records that so many of us contently worship. Because of their desire for a closer relationship with the author of our existence, these people come to know more about our creator than the rest of us.

I am not talking about those who have so corrupted the records left by God's inspired souls to the point where we can debate about how many angels dance on the head of a pin... or evolution. I am talking about the very authors of our belief systems. Inspired beings who feel comfortable proclaiming "the way" only after they have found it for themselves. Guides whose efforts are accompanied by the miracles that so many records tell us about. Like the wonders God grants them, the evidence that such blessed folk, or saints, have ever been working to help us all get to know God better predates the advent of Christianity.

Whether teaching quietly from lonely cubicles at work or noisily on crowded street corners, the miracle workers of today both understand and walk the path to perfection. They show it to others by their very actions: without money and without price. Indeed, fully understanding that God is in charge of their lives, true saints seldom even think about their reward. They seem not even able to worry about filling their very bellies as they travel along God's inspired ways.

Basing their actions upon a personal relationship with our superior being, these true believers are the ones who can offer the most compelling witnesses to the way God works; Citizens whose words are accompanied by miracles; Agents that so many religious texts, both popular and obscure, tell us about. People whose very passage through our lonely orb inspires the lives of us all.

Unless they have been told to hide from us, God's elect are seldom found living upon a mountaintop. By discovering how to live with themselves and others, they become Heaven's messengers. This is why the Almighty has decreed that His examples must live and work right along side of us.

Because saints have mastered a personal relationship with our common creator, they each invariably tell you that the work of our maker is to refine our raw human matter into a more perfect, content, human being.

Believe it or not, I have met one of these people. A truly inspired being: a miracle worker.

It was on an unusually cold December night ..."
