Through some 40 plus years in the pastorate, Dr. Crisp has served and taught congregations and traveled to Israel on a regular basis. He was struck at the number of misconceptions there were among evangelicals regarding the various circumstances and events in the scripture.

It is only from a true understanding of the Word of God that one can draw closer to the heart of God.
