Over the past few years we have developed an ever growing friendship with Brother Brad Harrub of Franklin, TN. He has spoken in our last two summer series and held a seminar on Creation versus Evolution in 2008. His is a congregation favorite and receives monthly financial support.
Brother Harrub is a member of the Southern Hills church of Christ. What is Focus Press? According to Brad, “At Focus Press, we desire all people everywhere to come to a full understanding, of true Christianity. Unfortunately, there is much confusion when it comes to the world of religion. Focus Press was formed to publish materials based on the inspired Word of God. Resources that are designed to provide understanding and clarity when it comes to issues that are, quite frankly, sometimes very difficult to comprehend. That’s why we began publishing Think magazine in January of 2006. Why such an unusual title for a Christian magazine? Our ultimate goal is to provide reasonable answers for those who are seeking the truth. Think deals with difficult topics such as, stem cell research, intelligent design, cloning, abortion, homosexuality and other social issues that affect us as we live in an increasingly perplexed society. There are regular departments that will deal with practical ways to pass our faith to the next generation, how to incorporate our faith into daily living, issues that are unique to women, how to be good stewards of our blessings, and a host of other regular columns designed to strengthen those who are already committed to living for Christ.”
Brad Harrub holds an earned B.S. degree in biology from Kentucky Wesleyan College, and an earned doctorate degree in anatomy and neurobiology from the College of Medicine at the University of Tennessee in Memphis. He authored the books Convicted: A Scientist Examines the Evidence for Christianity, Dissecting the Truth, and coauthored of the books, The Truth About Human Origins, Investigating Christian Evidences, Matters of Life and Death, and Diamonds in the Rough: Nuggets of Truth from God’s Word.
