Afterward as he descended the stairway from the upper room (how appropriately named) in which we gathered for the study I matched his gait step for step while picking up the crumbs (my questions recalled) and force-feeding them to him one after another after another. Suddenly, he stopped. Was he needing to focus and think through some astute answer to my latest? Not exactly. Just then he sighed and betraying his exhaustion and wanting to bring this night to a merciful end, he sighed, "John, Ask God!" What a brilliant idea which, until pastor mentioned it, I had never thought to do. It became a life changing word of advice.< Less

The plan for our salvation was drawn up in the ages past by our Lord to encompass, not just those final acts of forgiveness but, the entire span of our Savior’s sojourn among us. As the ... More > earthly life of the Savior comes to its climactic conclusion, so does the fury of the opposing darkness. Whatever devilish plans may have been held in reserve over the 30 or so years Jesus was among us, have inevitably and predictably, on the eve of His death, burst forth in all its rage. As Jesus approached Golgotha, He invited more and more people to involve themselves in some way in the confrontation. What was once a very private conversation on some forsaken hillside with His twelve discussing His sufferings and death, had become a sermon "shouted from the housetops." It is the Story of when the light invaded the blackness of a spiritual night. It is the Story of when God walked among us.< Less

This work represents the daydreaming of a retired minister of his perfect church. It becomes a study of the Beatitudes. The beatitudes are the key to interpreting Scripture because they speak of the... More > Cross. They are, themselves, a pastoral hermeneutic that is the scriptwriter for every sermon and the voice of all biblical counsel. A thousand theologians would have a thousand different views on this dynamic text and all would be right. In a thousand sermons and homilies we have not begun to uncover the secrets contained here for living a holy life. The way of holiness is locked away in these verses—even though Jesus gave us the key, "follow me" (John 12:26)< Less
I Forgive You: A Personal Journey into Forgiveness By John King

AFTER spending—it seems like—10 lifetimes as a pastor/teacher alerting the church to its endless history of inflicting pain on the very persons they claim to love, I have come to the... More > realization that instead of talking about repentance all the time, broken relationships might be better addressed from the other side: forgiveness. My whole idea behind this booklet is a peaceful meandering through my past, reading as I go, the monuments marking the battlefield where conflicts happened. As I go, I puzzle over the meaning of forgiveness and whether or not I have learned to cherish it for the divine gift it is.< Less
Grandma's Eyes: A Grandfather's Perspective on Love By John King

THIS work is a reaction to a postmodern sexual freedom— and subsequent redefining of the terms of relationship—that are affecting the moral conscience of my grandchildren who naively... More > assume that a grandparent's code of ethics and morals is old fashion and out-of-date—an impractical ideology. A postmodern world recommends a level of sexual freedom where the physical pleasure is emphasized over the relationship and over love, something about which a grandparent has a loving interest in cautioning against. All grandpa has to serve his interest in this regard is his near half century romance with grandma, of which he speaks freely to lovingly encourage the grandchildren to choose a lifestyle that will support spiritual and emotional health as well as help them discover a deep and enduring friendship and romance with the person of their choosing. This brief work is the product of that interest, a story, as told —as the title reads—in grandma's eyes.< Less

More > beliefs, to a more critical examination of the church, and to a different understanding of ministry in today's world. As personal as I make this all sound, my family represents a thousand families, a hundred thousand and more, who have sat in painful silence because religious differences have taken away their voice. They tire of confrontation, angry discussions, verse hurling and jabbing one another with theories over every conceivable divisive issue. It is a powerful idea that those who do not share our faith should know that we do, not so much in our argument as in our love. It is time to listen.< Less
