About the Author: Lawrence O. Richards

B.A., University of Michigan; Th.M., Dallas Theological Seminary; Ph.D., Northwestern University

A native of Michigan, Richards entered the world on September 25, 1931, to faith-affirming parents. His father served as an elder in their Presbyterian church, and Richards grew up immersed in religious education classes. However, he lost his interest in religion, later decided to enroll at Antioch College, and lacking any guiding factor in his life, he enlisted in the Navy.

Stationed in New York City, Richards encountered Donald Grey Barnhouse who led him to rededicate his life to the Lord. This forever changed Richards who finished his Navy time and went back to school to receive his bacherlor's degree in philosophy. After getting married, Richards attended Dallas Theological Seminary and was ordained in 1962. Moving to Illinois he worked as an editor for Scripture Press Publications and as an associate pastor. His role of overseeing the church education program and teaching a Bible class concerned him. Richards believed that Christian education, practice, and theory needed to be changed and reevaluated.

While teaching as an Assistant Professor of Christian Education at Wheaton College Graduate School, Richards also applied himself to Ph.D. studies. His dissertation research provided him with the framework for his Sunday School PLUS curriculum, and a summer seminar with Wheaton faculty resulted in a book called A New Face for the Church. The impact of this book led Richards to become a full-time author and speaker at conventions and seminars. A prolific writer, Richards has penned over 200 works with much of his writing having been translated into 24 languages.

With his emphasis on the theory of Christian education, Richards has created many changes in the church environment, but he also has taken some criticism. As a researcher and writer, Richards hasn't put his theories to the test in the church or the classroom as he once did. Some practitioners have disagreed with his ideas based on their troubles implementing them. However, other people have found that Richards has found a way to teach Bible content productively, and his approach to teaching Sunday school is the one most used by curriculum publishers.

Currently Larry, who is a member of the International Society of Deliverance Ministers, writes on biblical demonology on the blog www.demondope.com. He conducts FREEDOM WORKSHOPS in churches and communities around the country. These workshops and any personal ministry are offered at no charge to individuals and to sponsoring groups.

"It was far too large for a newborn. Its head was covered with coarse black hair, and its body was red and blotchy. And on each hand there were six perfectly formed fingers. The baby peered down at her with cruel, intelligent eyes, and when it smiled she saw two rows of tiny teeth." So this was how the god had answered my prayers, "Myrfel thought. This child he had given her was to be the instrument of her revenge." The second book in the Invisible War series, "The Day of the Others" chronicles the in-between years of the Creation account and the Flood. When Tubal Cain discovers metalworking, human society begins to change, creating new opportunities for the ranks of demons who masquerade as humankind's gods to prey on humanity's growing depravity. Through the stories of Tubal Cain, Enoch, and other fascinating characters, "The Day of the Others" describes the societal advances that lead to the evolution of a unique civilization marked by material progress and spiritual decline. But when demons mate with human women and produce giants known as Nephilim, angels intervene, and the whole world rushes toward a cataclysmic judgment that will change the face of the planet.
