I write easy-reading books about the Bible and Christianity.
I write especially for people who aren’t Christians. So, I don’t use words that are common among Christians but foreign to everyone else.
The best compliment I’ve gotten about my writing came from a nonreligious but curious college student whose parents immigrated to California from Vietnam:
“I am grateful that someone out there, who can write simply but not stupidly, took the time to [write this book] for someone like me.”

What I’m Doing Right Now
Paraphrasing The Casual English Bible
“I nibbled my way into this project, perhaps the same way a lamb nibbles its way into trouble. I started paraphrasing Genesis as a private Bible study experiment. I loved it. So, I didn’t stop.
I write books to help people understand the Bible. I write in simple English—an art I learned as a news journalist. That’s how I’m paraphrasing the Casual English Bible, too. I don’t use Christian buzzwords or Bible scholar jargon. Instead, I use phrases that explain those words. The paraphrase doesn’t sound as familiar to Christians, but it makes better sense to Bible newcomers. At least that’s my hope.
