Way back in 1987 Pastor Chuck Smith (or a ghost writer hired by him) had written a somewhat sanitized book called, "The Harvest."
He had neglected to tell the stories of some key individuals that had helped to build Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa in this book.
I found my self getting irritated.
And apparently so did God.
I explain how I know this in the book that I wrote.
So I sat down and began to type out my own story as it were because I had a hand in helping to build Calvary Chapel along with a host of others.
This is a PDF rough draft of what I had written way back then.
There are a lot of missing pages and a few errors in spelling.
I have not worked on it at all, but yet it has been read by a lot of people who got back to me and told me how it impacted them deeply.
One wonderful loving couple uses the book as a text book to teach young people how to walk in the Spirit.
Because I do not believe in making personal profit from anything that God does through anyone's life in ministry beyond reasonable sustenance I give the book away freely.
Although one intelligent theologian told me i should publish it so that it can reach a wider audience.
I still think that you, my dear readers are fully capable of spreading this book around through the current day media avenues, such as twitter, facebook, blogs, texting etc...if you are blessed by it.
I would humbly ask that you would do as such if you find that the book ministered to you and blessed you so that others may be blessed as well for the glory of God.
Which of course is my sincerest prayer.
You will need the free Adobe Reader to access the Book if you do not have a PDF file reader.
