How difficult it was to write a book about religion and spirituality? How much did you research for it and from where?

It is not difficult to write about the message of the cross. I am a Christian; therefore, it is my everyday walk. I read and study the Bible all the time. It is my resource as well as Christian related reference books.

"Re-Presenting God" is a great guidance for the youth backed up with supporting Biblical evidence. How much did you research to write this book?

The Bible was my source of reference when writing Re-Presenting God and my other journal, Is This English Class or Bible Study. I also used the Strong’s Concordance for the original definitions of the Hebrew and Greek words.

I believe I made the mistake of focusing on youth only when my first journal should have been marketed to everyone.
