Local East Texas Author Releases Controversial New Book
Lindale, Texas, February 5, 2014
Local east Texas author Randy Meulman announced the release of his new book, from Death to Life: The New Creation. This book is about coming to grips with the God who absolutely loves us and is committed to our freedom and growth. An overriding theme in the book is resurrection – both in this life and in the one to come. The hope we have in a loving God is a continual emphasis.
The book has already struck a controversial note with pastors. The author mailed a large number of complimentary books to pastors of various denominations in Texas asking them for their help. He specifically told them that he was not looking for financial support. He followed up with phone calls, emails, and interviews. At the end of the process not one offered to help. Randy was dumbfounded and could not understand why. Finally, a retired pastor told the author that, “Many pastors would like to help but are concerned about what might happen in their churches. There would be some pastors who feared for their jobs.” The implication was that much of what goes on in the name of Christianity is really about the business of Christianity, with little to do with the good news that Jesus promised. In spite of the fact that many pastors are fearful to get involved the book is gaining momentum. Randy liked many of the pastors whom he contacted and wished they could have worked together. He also is well aware that it is impossible to judge another person’s heart and holds no resentment towards anyone who would not help him. However, Randy does believe that the Lord has given him a much needed message for the Church today.
