Russ White: I would like to dedicate this book to my beautiful wife, my two beautiful daughters, to Dr. Doug Bookman, and the folks at Shepherds Theological Seminary. Finally, to God, who provides me with the energy and skills to write; may I use the skills He has given with wisdom and to his glory.

Denise Donohue: This book is dedicated to my husband, who carries on without me when I’m writing, to my dogs, Buddy and Raleigh, who keep me company during the long hours at the computer, and to Jesus Christ, who is the solid rock in this constantly changing sea.
