An Analogy of Salvation

An Analogy of Salvation

For God so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes
in Him should not perish but have
everlasting life.

JOHN 3:16

About the Author and this Book

The author is a bankruptcy attorney in Dallas, Texas, where he has resided since 1979. He is married and the father of four. After graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1983, he returned to the practice of law, not having received God’s call to a different ministry. He is an ardent student of scripture and has been so since completing seminary. He is an evangelist and an author. He publishes his works without charge on (Proverbs 23:23) and publishes a website that argues for creation ex nihilo from the perspective of design in nature. That website is located at CREATIONDESIGN.ORG. His professional website is located at CHAPTER7-11.COM.

The House is the true story, by a rather general analogy, of the author’s journey to Christ. But, in essence, it is the story of the journey of all Christians to Christ because we all must enter through the same door. The work is written from the perspective of a young boy learning of life and searching for something that he could not define.

The House is short and it is intended to be read from start to finish in one sitting. It should not be read in increments nor should the reader find the ending in any manner other than by beginning on page one.
