Welcome to My Website
The purpose of this site is to provide and share all of the materials I have written and produced regarding the Bible and its contents in my 56 years of preaching and teaching. This will take some time, so check back for additional posted tools. If you are using a smart phone, you will need to click on the three layer menu (known as the hamburger and usually located in the upper left hand corner) in order to bring up the major pull down categories. I am a retired pulpit minister and a retired Christian university Assistant Professor (See "Amridge" in menu)
NOTE: All material on this website is FREE.

KEYS TO BIBLE STUDY: Phillip asked the Ethiopian nobleman, "Do you understand what you are reading?" He responded, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" (Acts 8:30, 31). This website is about providing helpful keys that will open doors of clarity and understanding of God's written word, the Bible. I pray that it will be a profitable journey for you and an honor to God, the author of the Bible. Please feel free to contact me.

Portland Church of Christ: Portland, TN
I have had the privilege of preaching and teaching for the Hartsville Pike and Nashville Road Churches of Christ in Gallatin, TN for 21 years each but now retired. These congregations have been a great blessing. My wife and I now live in Portland, TN. and are members of the Portland Church of Christ where Bud Woodal is minister. He is solid in his biblical teaching and powerful in his sermons.

CREDITING SOURCES: An important goal in this effort is to give accurate credit to the many sources I have used over the years to help me teach the Bible and lead others to the truth of God's word. I no longer have some of the earlier resources; however, if you see any material that needs better or proper referencing, please let me know. Much of the materials are my conclusions drawn from years of study. As one preacher said, "I milk many cows, but I churn my own butter."
