It was on that dig we met Dr. Gene Merrill and his wife Dr. Janet Merrill. Dr. Merrill endorsed my book before publication and an excerpt of his endorsement is on the back cover.
“‘With ‘the author’s colorful turn of phrase … experience solid learning interwoven with joyful, sanctified ‘filling of the gaps’ that make the ancient text alive…’ Eugene H. Merrill, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary” (2015)
Being a friend of ABR opened a whole series of new relationships as well. Dr. Bryant Wood, our Dig Director in 2010, has an amazing bio on the ABR website. I am in awe of his fortitude and dedication defending the Bible, its authority and its reliability as historical record.
I am most pleased and humbled that he volunteered to endorse my book this year. “‘Shepherd, Potter, Spy–and the Star Namer’ tells the story of the Hebrews’ arrival in Canaan from a new point of view. A young Gibeonite shepherd’s eyewitness account captures the tension in the ancient land of Canaan. Accurate descriptions of the terrain give the Bible student new insights into this historical event of the Late Bronze Age. The use of the archaeological artifact known as the Gezer Almanac adds credence to the timeline the author constructs. Bryant G. Wood, PhD, Director of Research, Associates for Biblical Research, Akron PA.”
