Have you ordered your signed copy of Wendell Arnold’s intriguing story?

Wendell Arnold’s newly released autobiography, FROM THE COTTON PATCH TO Ph.D., GOD’S MANAGEMENT OF MAN THROUGH THE EYES OF A SCIENTIST, is a must read for everyone, and especially those who think that religion, science and environmental improvement don’t mix.

Wendell Arnold skillfully tells his story of being from a family of nine kids, growing up picking cotton and becoming a world renowned scientist with faith in God.  This autobiography is very unique, reading more like a suspense novel.  The experience in the cotton patch to dealing with corporate political challenges, environmental issues and legal avenues blended with raising a family paints the picture of a managed life.  The adventures take more twists and turns than a rattlesnake chasing his prey.

Bunko

 

Once upon a time I used to get together with a group of women who met once a week to play a dice game called Bunko.  I never stopped to wonder if this was a regular game people played, or if I was being introduced to a new drinking game that required at least 12 people.  This was many years ago, and let me tell you, a tough crowd.  There were 12 women in our group, we all took turns hosting it at our homes each week and had a schedule to meet for 12 weeks.  I think I made 4 or 5 of them, one of them hosted at my house, and then I had to find a replacement to fill my spot.  It was a little too rowdy for me in ways I just can’t explain.  So imagine my surprise when I learned of Wendell’s Bunko-playing days!

Thankfully, his experience was much different than mine.  In Chapter 7, Graduate School, Wendell relives the night he and Carolyn first played Bunko at the Methodist Church near College Station, Texas.  They were new to the area and the first morning they attended church services, they were invited by a professor at Texas A&M to come back and play Bunko that night.  The discussions and insinuations about mental energy and prayer are so intriguing and wonderfully written, I felt as if I was there taking place in the conversations.

The Professor who invited them to play was fascinated with Wendell and asked him about his physics training.  Wendell replied that he had no college training, and this sets off a whole new chain of events.  It turns out that Wendell is auditing this guys class!  The professor questions why this is so, and instead of telling him about the situation with Dr. Jerk, he portrays what a stand-up man he is and focuses only on his responsibility in the situation.  It pays off very well for him, as he recalls that morning’s sermon, Trust in the Lord, He knows exactly what you need.

You can read more about this and many more exciting events in Wendell Arnold’s autobiography, FROM THE COTTON PATCH TO Ph.D., GOD’S MANAGEMENT OF MAN THROUGH THE EYES OF A SCIENTIST.  It is available at xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and on the nook, kindle and google e-book.  But the only place to get your signed copy is wendellarnold.com!  Go to wendellarnold.com and follow the directions to place an order online and pay through PayPal or send us a check.

A story full of suspense, drama and action

“As agronomy is the care of the soil and Dr. Arnold’s life work, he shares with the reader his care for the soul as he travels through life in this insightful autobiography.  The reader becomes a visitor in the lively dialog among family members and colleagues as Dr. Arnold reveals conflicts and resolutions in the world of faith and science.  His subtle sense of humor adds a light touch to this amazing journey.” – Anne S. Owens, President Samar Publishing, Inc.

As Ms. Owens describes, Wendell’s story reads more like a novel than an autobiography, where the reader becomes a visitor in the lively dialog.  This is a story that is full of suspense, drama and action, where the reader feels as if they are right there watching it happen.  It is truly a page turner, see for yourself and CLICK HERE TO READ CHAPTER ONE if you haven’t already.

An Event-Filled Few Days at the International Christian Retail Show!

As hundreds of people walked into the Exhibit Hall after a very moving ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday morning, emotions were high, excitement was in the air and 362 exhibitors awaited at the Christian Book Association’s International Christian Retail Show.  Held at the Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, the CBA’s ICRS is the largest Christian retail show in the world, and we were thrilled to be a part of it with Wendell Arnold’s new book in the show.

Wendell Arnold and his new book, FROM THE COTTON PATCH TO Ph.D., GOD’S MANAGEMENT OF MAN THROUGH THE EYES OF A SCIENTIST, at the International Christian Retail Show in Orlando, Florida July 15-18, 2012.

Two and a half days of meeting other authors, publishers and distributors went by so fast, and we are all so very grateful for the ability to attend.  Wendell and his wife Carolyn traveled from Oklahoma and I had the pleasure of my daughter accompanying me.  We made the three hour drive from West Palm Beach, where she is a student at Palm Beach State College.

Although Wendell and Carolyn have a home on Key Biscayne, they usually spend their summers in Oklahoma.  Not that the weather is cooler out west, the most common reason for escaping Florida in the summertime, but Wendell’s farm gets his attention during the “farming weather” months.  A condominium man at heart, he is not.  What he does have in his heart for The Village is his church, St. Christopher’s By The Sea, and all of their wonderful friends there.  You can find out how the couple wound up in Key Biscayne in his autobiography, FROM THE COTTON PATCH TO Ph.D., GOD’S MANAGEMENT OF MAN THROUGH THE EYES OF A SCIENTIST.

What an interesting story it is, and Wendell’s writing style keeps the reader engaged.  Wendell tells about growing up picking cotton, marrying his high school sweetheart, and excerpts of the next 50 years of their life together with 3 children.  We have heard story after story of how hard it was for people to put the book down once they picked it up!  You can probably see what I mean by just reading Chapter One.  Take a look!  To read Chapter One, click here.  You might want to first finish reading about the ICRS and take a look at all the pictures I am going to post below, so I will remind you at the end of the blog to go read Chapter One.

So, on with pictures from the show!

      

     

 

Goodbye Orlando Convention Center, a great place to hold the Christian Book Association’s International Christian Retail Show!

One of the authors we met at the show, Pastor Ronald Wean, was very delightful to talk with.  He and Wendell struck up lively conversation a few different times and they found they have several things in common.  Pastor Wean is pictured above shaking hands with Wendell in the second picture.  He is the author of HEALING TRAUMATIZED CHURCHES and he has leadership trainings in trauma recognition, trauma recovery and trauma resiliency.  For more information, visit his website at rwean@sbcglobal.net.
