The Early Years, Volume I is a rare collection of messages I recorded in my late 20’s to early 30’s. After being forced to leave our church, Karla and I traveled all over the United States to share our new-found freedom in Christ and to help others experience the freedom and joy of a Christ-centered faith. Not all these early messages were recorded, but the ones that were have been restored from cassette tape and offered as part of this three-volume series. These messages are unedited and recorded live as I spoke in a variety of gatherings that included formal traditional churches, informal house churches, and small groups. We believe these foundational teachings are still needed and worth revisiting, whether you are a mature believer, a new disciple, or an honest seeker of Truth.
