by Jack Fagan
In his insightful TURN BACK, Jack Fagan set out to explore the validity of his concerns that the true meanings of some biblical teachings are being taught incorrectly or have been lost to history. These concerns began after he viewed an amazing video that seemed to distort what he knew of the Bible. These questions of truth stirred Jack to attempt to prove or disprove what appeared to be wild assertions. What he found caused him to review many Bible stories from an entirely new perspective, a perspective focused on Jacks understanding of Gods plan, His intentions and especially, His love.
Having been on this quest for fourteen years the author now presents his findings in this intriguing work, inviting the reader to Turn Back and take a new, fresh look at the Bible. You may find that you agree his conclusions are possibly, if not definitely, correct or, you may decide to set out on your own route to disprove them.
About the Author: Jack Fagan is a native of Seaford, NY, but has lived in Bayport, NY, with his wife Kathleen for twenty-seven years. In 1972, while earning a B.S. degree in accounting from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, he had a spiritual and physical life altering experience with the Lord through the council of Father Leo Gallant, in the campus chapel. Eventually becoming the owner of a moving, storage and furniture company on Long Island, Jack transformed his business into a ministry as well. Jacks companys watchword and trucking handle, Mighty Mountain Mover, was selected a decade before he felt God gave him the task of actually moving a mountain, Mt. Sinai to be precise. (Mt. 17:20)
In the spring of 1977 an elderly artist named Frank Alexander was hand lettering one of Jacks trucks. Having led Jack to the Lord, Frank bought him a Good News Bible. Inside the front cover Frank inscribed these words: Dear Jack my brother in Christ, may you follow up II Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Frank Jack is also extremely grateful to the late Pastor Elaine Bohrer, founder of the Lighthouse Mission, Bellport, NY, on whose Board of Directors he served for numerous years. Pastor Elaine taught Jack his Christian walk through her words and her walk.
This book is a result of Jacks obedience to the call of God which he heard through Fr. Gallant, Frank and Pastor Elaine. Having diligently sought and studied, Jack believes that Turn Back as pertaining to the questions discussed, reveals the most accurately redefined analyses and commentaries on the Bible to date and is, the Word of truth, rightly divided.
