About the author

Bruce Edward Butler

I’ve been married to the same beautiful woman for the past fifty years. Karin and I live in Oregon where we have eight children and ten grandchildren. When diagnosed with cancer in 2008, I stopped watching TV and began writing. Previous writing experience was as a song writer when I played in a couple of bluegrass bands. I’ve worked actively in jail and prison ministry for the past twenty-five years. I design houses when I’m not writing or in jail. 
Since I’ve been a Christian, my purpose in writing, whether it has been songs or novels, is to reflect the most magnificent story ever told in God’s Word. A seeking soul will find the truth of the gospel about Jesus Christ in each of my books. God draws people to Himself. Unfortunately, most of us don’t listen until we face adversity. Consequently, my characters struggle through a refining process, producing the desired results. I try to share this message the same way Jesus got his points across; through parables. The story is only a vehicle for the precious cargo, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be the most exciting an engaging you’ve ever read.

I’ve been stranded on a Muslim island in Indonesia, explored the most remote parts of China, been baptized in the Jordan River and slept in a flea bag hotel in Paris. And, by the way, God healed me of the cancer. If you want to read about that, check out How God Healed Me of Cancer on Amazon by Bruce E Butler
