My book traces the promise of a twelve-year-old boy to please God, not knowing what lies ahead or how hard it would be
Longwood, FL (Vocus) July 27, 2010
Everyone is on a journey. Nobody knows how it will turn out, but if people will take the time to look and listen, they will see that God is always by their side. In Windows to Heaven ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-455-0), walk with author Richard D. Brown through mortal peril, private meditations, and serendipitous encounters with God, in settings as colorful and diverse as the desert, jungle, forest, streams, arctic ice flows, and even the White House. Join him as he traces interactions with God from all phases of life—from his childhood on a small Indiana farm, to his stint in the Marine Corps, to marriage, college, graduate school, then children and grandchildren—that would form and shape his life and the lives of others.
“My book traces the promise of a twelve-year-old boy to please God, not knowing what lies ahead or how hard it would be,” the author says. “It documents the wisdom of an entire life as it unfolds before the reader. Allowing God to enter into your life gives way to optimism in one’s own life and the lives of others.”
Brown, who is the author of more than 200 scientific and government publications, says his three chief loves are God, his family and friends, and God’s exquisite creation, as echoed in his childhood “pact” with God: “I will live life according to Your commands if You’ll help me to make a positive difference in Your creation.” This book represents a fulfillment of that pact, as it details the direct hand of God in the author’s life and will inspire readers to look for and lean on Him throughout their life’s journey.
