Acts 3:15, How To Make An Author Smile

I stumbled upon a conversation yesterday on Hubpages where someone listed Revelation: The Way It Happened as one of the “top-3 Christian must-read books.” Don’t know who the guy is (somebody in the UK), but he knows how to make me smile! :) Which leads me to today’s verse:

You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead.

Yeah, I authored a book. Big deal. Jesus is the author of life, and look what kind of critical review he got for his work.

Sometimes while operating a historical-critical blog I tend to lose perspective. Some would say my writing is controversial, and my book about Revelation is no exception, but I hope ya know I ain’t dissin’ my main man. Jesus, with his dream of a Kingdom of Heaven on earth, remains my Christian inspiration. In him was life, and that life was the light of men (John 1:4). So, back to the topic: How do we make an author smile? Here is how we make the author of life smile:

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. That comes from John’s Gospel, the topic of my second book … a 180-degree reversal from the vengeful dreams of Revelation. It’s due out in January, and hopefully will fall next to Revelation on somebody’s top-3 list. :)
