November 07, 2018 - Richard Mansfield — For the past decade or more, whenever I taught or preached the Bible, I incorporated visual images into Keynote or PowerPoint slides to illustrate what I was teaching.

I told them I would get a free copy if I sold 12 of them, but they were under no pressure. Each person who purchased a copy of the DSB for my goal of 12 had to sign their name so that I could prove to Holman I had fulfilled my end of t ...
