Bible teachers have always tried to find the connection between contemporary culture and the ancient scriptures. This book, Upon Further Review, is an uncompromising attempt to bridge that gap. Pastors and readers will appreciate the original thoughts that come to light and hopefully will be challenged by the insights of the author. What could be more contemporary than a football referee making a critical review on whether the earlier decision made by an official will stand as is, be confirmed, or be over-ruled.
As long as Jesus has the final say on any issue in our life, He can turn it into something good.
Joel League has been in Christian ministry for over forty years, primarily as Pastor of Living Waters Church in Shelbyville, KY. His passion in ministry is the “Word of God” preached and rightly divided, to impart the truth that believers may grow in faith. This passion is surpassed only by his love and devotion for the person and presence of Jesus Messiah. Following seven years of military service, Joel heard the call of God for his life, “Shepherd My People”. In answering this call he has pastored congregations in Arkansas and Kentucky. Pastor League graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY, earning a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree. Joel and his wife, Carol, have two children and seven grandchildren.
