About the author (1996)

About the Author: David B. Biebel, DMin, is a minister, editor, health educator, and author or coauthor of eighteen other books including the CBA Gold Medallion award winning "New Light on Depression" and several others that have received special recognition including "If God is So Good, Why Do I Hurt So Bad?" and "Simple Health." His most recent series of health-related books includes "52 Ways to Feel Great Today." He holds a Doctor of Ministry degree in Personal Wholeness, with distinction, from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. From the author: You know, it seems like yesterday, yet it seems like forever, since Jonathan died in 1978. God, I miss him, still. He was three. I was thirty, then. Now I'm more than twice that. If I live to be ninety, I'll still say the same. God, I miss him, still. I miss his laughter. I miss his beautiful face. I miss his hugs and his love. Everything about him, I miss more than I can say. The last time I visited his grave, I told him that it wouldn't be long ... until we are together, again, forever. That is ... of course, if God and His Word can be trusted. If not, it's all been one long chasing after the wind and an exercise in ultimate futility, as the writer of Ecclesiastes might say. What it comes down to, essentially, is: Either there is a God or there isn't. If there isn't, then we might as well stop this sentence mid-sentence, because all you are and have really is just "dust in the wind." But if there is a God, then everything will fall into place someday, in His way.
