Bible Prophecy - God's Agenda And Your Part In It

I was the second writer on ABD coming on board not long after its April of 2008 beginning. Seeker had made 18 posts before I contributed a two part debunking of Armstrongs United States and Britain in Prophecy the following May. To get traction we tried to post every other day, and it was quite a grind. Later xHWA joined us and took up more than his share of the load, for which we were thankful. Now, we have other great writers which bless us with their thoughtful work; and so it continues.
When we started ABD we all used pseudonyms instead of our real names largely to protect our family members who were still in Armstrongist splinter groups (among other reasons). I chose Luc as mine. ABD became so popular in its niche that if I Googled Lucian Roske, it would pop up instantly. If I Googled my real name I wouldn't have anything. I did an article series on prophecy sometime later in 2008 in which I outlined conclusions to my own  studies. I didn't portray them as anything other than my own view back then, and I won't now. I say this because  I used those posts as the core of what became a book. Because of this I removed the posts. My main objective was, and is, to stimulate thought outside prescripted views, and to let the Bible speak for its self. Since what became the book appeared in its incipient form on ABD, I thought it appropriate to make known here its availability in the Kindle format. Naturally my real name is on the cover pic. So in some ways, this is an introduction. When I'm not Luc, I am Glen Paul Erickson.

When I read books, I like them in either paper or in the Kindle format. So I put the book on Amazon and gave it the minimum price. I would have made the book free if Amazon allowed it. It can be done, but it takes time. Amazon does allow a book to be free five days out of ninety. My book is scheduled to be free on Saturday March 1, 2014 to Wednesday March 5, 2014.

"Luc" or Glen, I just wanted to thank you for your all your efforts. This site was a tremendous help to me in coming out of Armstrongism, and I know it has similarly blessed others.

Thank you Martha. All of the writers at ABD have and do put in long hours with no other motive but concern for our brothers and sisters in Christ. That is another reason for using pseudonyms. To not attract attention to self is important. I had a few Muslims say that I was demonstrating cowardice by hiding behind another name, so I chose to take the heat for what I say in the book.

I'm taking on a pseudonym now. Just call me, "Chopped Liver"
