A new book has just been published and is being released as per the attached announcement (see attachment).
As most of you know, I had a life prior to my life as an evangelical pastor, and in this former life I was on the faculty of two colleges, Jackson College of Ministries in Jackson, Mississippi and Cascade Bible College in Portland, Oregon. Some of you to whom I am sending this missive were either faculty or students at one or the other of these institutions. Others of you may have an interest in this book because you know or knew some of the principle people concerned.
In short, this book, researched and written by historian Thomas Fudge (University of New England, New South Wales, Australia), details the demise of Cascade Bible College and its link to Jackson College of Ministries via the life and ministry of Donald W. Fisher. Closely associated with Fisher, of course, were Dr. Joseph Howell and myself. Since all three of us figure prominently in this historical narrative, I thought you might want to be aware of its publication. I have read a preliminary draft, and so far as I can see, the historical details seems to be correct. This treatment documents a sector of religious history that would otherwise be lost entirely except in the fading memory of the few who were participants.
If some of you take the time to read the book, I, for one, would be interested in your reflections, especially from those who were in some way linked to these institutions.
