God, through His grace, made possible our salvation from the sinful
world. The Bible makes it very clear that mankind can not be saved through
works. Because of this gift, the author takes no credit for his own salvation,
because it is a gift from God.
The message the author is trying to convey in these pages is the life of one ordinary person, beginning at birth with a twist of humor, to show his own personality. The stories continue throughout childhood, schooldays, marriage, AirForce, and finally, his days in the barber shop. Through these stories he tries to explain how God, in His grace, chose to pick up one little boy as His own and how this average child has learned to live by faith and not works.
You will discover that some of these stories are rather "spicy" (as one preacher friend stated). Some stories are just meant to be fun. All stories are told to show how a Christian can and does live in this sinful and cruel world. He has discovered through these many years that the majority of people, while working hard to support themselves and their loved ones, are very nice people. But, although they know who God is and believe in a god, they do not have a saving knowledge of God. Further more, their lives are so busy they do not have the time to learn what they believe.
It is the author's prayer that a book about true life (with the good and bad described ) in these stories will lead many people to a saving knowledge in the Lord Jesus Christ.Have fun and enjoy these stories. Keep an open mind and let no stone remain unturned until you have decided the destiny of your own soul.
