  • What ultimately provided the missing piece for the men referred to in our previous columns?

    That missing link for them hinged on two other very important words concerning the Lord Jesus Christ: prominent and pre-eminent.

    The meanings hidden in these two words seemed to throw the door of understanding wide open. Prominent communicates the idea of one among many. While pre-eminent means there is no one else or the one and only one.

    Mrs. Cooper jokingly told her four sons she was going to win a set of encyclopedias for them, and sure enough she did. The set was valued at $207.

  • Years ago I had a sort of business acquaintance whom I idolized.

    I was just getting started in book writing and at the time she was one of the top names in Christian publishing.

    This woman wrote some of the funniest books I’d ever read, plus she was highly in demand as a speaker. She probably still is.

    Back then she could make audiences laugh until they wet their pants and snap her fingers and bring them to their knees in surrender to the Lord.
