Many dear Christian friends, male and female, young and old have given me valuable advice. I cannot list them all. Certain persons are worthy of special mention.
First must be Jim Hibbert of Calgary, Alberta, Canada (www.sunandmorningstar.com) whose understanding of prophecy from many years of study, as well as spiritual understanding is far above mine. Jim has answered many of my questions and provided valuable input.
Others have served in reading the draft scripts, correcting and suggesting changes. These include, among others
Edwin Mutton, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex, England
Ken Hollands, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, England
Peter Mutton, Frinton on Sea, Essex, England
Crawford Gribben, Ballymena, Northern Ireland
Nick Fleet, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England
Andrew Burr, West Norwood, London, England
Also, my dear wife, Ruth, for giving the book its ‘readability check’.
Bill Chellberg’s (Wheaton, Illinois, – www.bibles-etc.com) advice on standards, logistics etc, as well as suggesting corrections and being a good moral support.
Two brothers have websites which I have found invaluable, both presenting ministry and the scriptures. Rob McClean, Grimsby, England has Ministry Search Engine – www.mcclean.me.uk/mse/, and
Les Hodgett, Ramsgate, England for Stem Publishing – www.stempublishing.com . In the digital version of this book, hyperlinks are generally to Ministry Search Engine where the Darby and King James versions of the Bible are in parallel.
Finally, thanks to Jason Wain (Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England – www.jasonwain.co.uk) for the design of a striking cover
