There are a lot of people around who can’t wait to tell you what you’ve done wrong, but there aren’t many fathers willing to take the time and effort to help you grow up.

KARP - Book 1  Adventures & Angels

 

Before anyone suggests that this all came out of my head, and I'm doing it so that I can just sell books - please let me explain how KARP came about.

 

Firstly, the book came out of a very detailed and prologued vision.

 

It was 1986, and I’d been married for about 6 months and we’d just had the biggest row ever! My wife stormed off to bed and I sat on the sofa brooding like a child … I sat there remembering that one of the things we’d both agreed on our wedding day was that we’d never to go bed on an argument - well we just broke that rule!

 

I was sulking (big time) and although I could feel the Holy Spirit telling me to go upstairs to apologise and make up with her, I was playing stubborn and instead of listening, decided to open a bottle of wine and binge watch Star Trek!  In fact, the more He prompted, the more I drank.

 

Finally, after about 2 hours of His prompting (I thought it was more like nagging), I sloped upstairs and sidled into our bedroom.  I was actually hoping to find my wife sitting up in bed, possibly reading her Bible and acting quite penitent - shock of shocks - she was fast asleep!

 

I couldn’t believe it! I was livid! I stormed back downstairs, promptly drank the rest of the wine and continued binge watching Star Trek until I fell asleep …

 

I’m telling you this (extremely condensed version) because it was then that I saw what I have written as the ‘Prologue’ together with the outlying story of KARP!

 

So I didn’t get this vision when I was on my knees praying or fasting, or weeping, or being really holy, or, or, or … It’s pure GRACE - in fact, Grace was so much of it that I got the vision even when I was being a complete ding dong!
