Songs of a Warrior Poet

About the authors...sort of!

ou may have noticed that we have not tried to list the authors of this book. There are at least three reasons why. First, the volume that you are holding in your hands or reading on your screen—from the cover design to the text itself—was created as a collabortion of many people. God has an amazing vision for the church: “Practicing the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ, who is the head. From Him the whole body grows, fitted and held together through every supporting ligament. As each one does its part, the body grows in love” (Ephesians 4:15-16, NET). We want everything we do, including writing books, to reflect this Reality.

What’s more, on an even deeper level, anything good and right and true that may be contained in this book was a gift of God, not of ourselves. It was learned in the context of genuine life in the Body of Christ, twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. Even members of this Body who weren’t directly responsible for this book’s text were nevertheless instruments that God used to teach these truths. They are no less “authors” than those who put the teachings into written words.

And none of us who are “authors” would want to do anything to draw attention to ourselves. With our whole hearts we want you to be encouraged to live a vibrant, courageous life of faith in Jesus, and we want Him to be honored in all things. “For we do not proclaim ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5).

For all these reasons we hope you won’t mind that we omitted a list of authors’ names from this book. But if you want to get in touch with us, we’re available. You can write us any time at the following address:

“Grace be with all who have an undying love for our Lord Jesus Christ.”
