“Jessica Lynn, our firstborn daughter, was born with trisome 18, a fatal genetic disease,” the author says. “Though Jessica Lynn lived nine months, she never grew to be more than five pounds. The pain of watching a child who could never grow up gave me an understanding of how it hurts God to watch His spiritual children remain infants in the faith. This passion for teaching spiritual growth has consumed my life throughout my 35-year ministry.”
Dr. Barrier, who is the mega-church pastor of Casas Church in Tucson, began preaching at the age of 13, and he shares his 3,000-plus sermons with people on his popular website, http://www.preachitteachit.org. His compelling teaching style is one-of-a-kind, combining a solid biblical foundation with culturally relevant application, engaging illustrations, and astute scholarship. He holds degrees from Baylor University; Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary; and Golden Gate Seminary in Greek, religion, theology, and pastoral care.
