Dedication

For Shannyn: no father could be more proud of his daughter
, and her husband, Wes—thanks for the humor and help when times were darkest
.

For my granddaughter, Laurelin Mae Jordan—grow strong and courageous
in Christ
, for these stories are to you a legacy from your Popi
For Rob, Jaime, and
Jim, without whose belief in the fundamental worth of this project—a belief generously put to deeds by their time and creative effort on my behalf—I would have canned it and moved on.
The Lord reward you
each
kindly and generously
Tha
nks also to Martin, that great “L
urking Sasquatch,

who oversees web site and other essentials from a distance, where he always appears as a photographic blur in the background.

For my departed wife Dianne, who dances before the Once and Future King. These books are a tribute to your patience, encouragement
,
and caring.

For the Promised Seed: the suffering servant, wonderful counselor, mighty God, and the once and future King who waits to welcome us with those who are willing at Time’s End

 

 

The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other
possibilities, that
makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

—Allan Bloom
