Dear Friends —

The pre-publication issue will be shipped on July 12 to all who have made a donation, as an initial private sale fundraiser for the TEI. This book is far deeper than phenomenology, also being a theological diagnosis of the uncontrollable and destructive anger of Satan from Genesis to Revelation, and its impact on all of us.  Twenty pages of theological introduction, then some 240 pages of true stories. It ministers to the soul.
