The Come & See Book Project


About the Book

Following Jesus on His Kingdom building mission has been the adventure of my lifetime.  Who wouldn't follow our good King Jesus if they truly understood who He is?  This book will share just some of the adventures of the past 44 years.  Like the Lord's disciple, Philip, I invite my friends to come and see who Jesus is and what following Him is like.
