I’m thrilled that my first full-length book is nearly done — “nearly” as in “waiting for the final proof copy.” I wrote it as part of my D.Min. program, and it’s the next-to-last ministry project before finalizing the dissertation. Yea! The book is a true story called “Escape from the Green Mansion: The Extraordinary True Story of Ordinary Church Women Freeing San Francisco’s Brothel Slaves.”

This book is a true story about the courageous Christians who risked everything to help free San Francisco’s brothel slaves.
As soon as the book of available I’ll send out the link!
