A Book Review:

This book is about an incredible life journey (story) of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Epp. The Founder of Back to the Bible ministries. How they ventured by faith in the ministry of Back to the Bible is really a
n amazing story.
 Here is a worth mentioning incident from his life story,:
"After the biblical graduation they began active service in the pastorate. But the offering at the church was so meager that they could not meet both ends. So he needed an additional income and joined in a harvest field better known as the WPA. (Works Progress Administration). Later they got an opportunity to buy a small gasoline station, but the required cash was not there. But he went ached in faith and God fulfilled their desire in a miraculous way, in a short period he could spend full time in ministry. This wonderful incident narrated in chapter 4 of this book.
The Story began in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1939 A young man, driven by a vision, walked into the office of a radio station manager.
He spoke boldly: "We noted that you have every thing on your broadcasts that the people want except something for the heart. We have that and would like the opportunity of presenting it to the people." 
In the short discussion that followed, the manager agreed. "And who will finance the program?" He asked.
"For the past twelve years we have been working in co-operation with a partner who has taken the responsibility of all our financial needs."
 "Oh, and who is your partner?"
 "God is our Partner."
 Theodore H.Epp had just 65 dollars when he made the first broadcast for Back to the Bible on May 1, 1939. That was several years ago. And during those years his Partner has supplied everything."
 The ministry of Back to the Bible has now grown to worldwide proportions, with 12 branch offices, broadcasts in several languages, with the printing and annual distribution of more than eight million pieces of Christian literature, assistance in missions' projects and the support of several hundreds of missionaries, correspondence schools and counseling ministries.

Late Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Epp. and their amazing walk of faith in the God of the Bible to make the vision and ministry of Back to the Bible a reality. As a result of their obedience to the call of God, today every hour of the day Back to the Bible is heard some where around the world.
Dr. Woodrow Kroll
The Present President
Back to the Bible International
Now the International President Dr. Woodrow Kroll (A senior Bible Teacher and a renowned writer of more than 50 books) is continuing the mantle which Theodore H Epp initiated years back.
 Dr. Kroll joined Back to the Bible in August 1990 as general Director and Bible Teacher. In between a brief period-from1981 to 1989- Warren W Wiersbe (former Bible teacher of Moody Church in Chicago, Illinois served as a leader to this Lincoln based ministry. Since 1990 Dr. Kroll is serving as a principal speaker on the ministry's daily worldwide broadcast on radio and television, which has grown to a listener ship of millions around the world. It has offices in twelve different countries in 25 different languages. Its main radio program can be heard from Radio Sri Lanka in the morning hours (IST 7.00).
This book is a must read to all Christian believers, especially the one who are in His business.

A Rare Kind of Journalism Here. A Letter to the Reader's Digest Editor and his Exemplary reply. His peers should follow suit

(An Editor's Response to a Reader)

Our editors (especially the much circulated ones) are a busy lot, but here is an exception to this. A personal experience with the World's Best Magazine’s* (‘Reader's Digest’) editor.

The Cover Page of the Magazine's Current issue

An Introduction:

A Quote from the Chief Editor:

Let me quote a statement from Reader's Digest's Indian edition editor Mr, Mohan Shivanand, He wrote in its June 2009 issue:
"I've always believed RD to be not just the world's largest-selling magazine but, hands down, the best one too.  In April, Reader's Digest was awarded the top prize by the American Society of Magazine Editors at this year's National Magazine Awards, in the over two million-circulation category.  RD scored over four other great finalists, including Time and National Geographic.  The award honours the "effectiveness with which writing, reporting, editing and design all come together" for you, the reader.
"Best magazine with two million or more is like winning the Oscar for the best picture of the year," said our US-based Editor-in-Chief Frank Lalli,"  "Reader's Digest is the best magazine in the world."
The above quoted statements  prove their sheer hard work in this tremendous success.
Generally our editors (especially the much circulated ones) are a busy lot, but here is an exception to this. A personal experience with a much circulated magazine’s (‘Readers Digest’) editor.
I posted the following letter with much expectation to the editor of Readers Digest (India), and the personal reply received from the Chief Editor, Mr. Mohan Sivanand:

The Editor,
Reader’s Digest   
New Delhi

Your March issue made an informative reading. The timely subject ‘recession’ related articles are very informative and useful. Editor’s Bugs me anyway ‘Language’ column was an interesting read, The writer’s narration on the quite often used word in daily life ‘anyways’ is very educative. Thanks for the great tutorial here. The Facts about fat the cover story “13 things no one ever tells you about weight loss” is really astounding. Many things mentioned are really unknown especially the “Sleep Treatment”. Your interview with Maria Tippett the author of the master photographer Yosuf’s photographs were well captured, but it would have been better if you would have given one or two photographs apart from portraits. ‘The Air up there’ on women astronauts was a fitting tribute to the women astronauts on the occasion of international women’s day. Last but the least, about the visionary doctor Govindappa Venkataswamy’s enduring vision fulfilled through his family tree. You should have mentioned a word about this visionary doctor’s story (Bonus Read) on the cover page. The writer’s concluding paragraph said everything in short. “Though Dr. V’s strength waned his family continued “growing and developing a little of Dr. V in each of them. Ashok Mahadevan’s write-up is a great tribute to Dr. V and his institution ‘Aravind family’.
Philip Verghese ‘Ariel’,Secunderabad.

Editor's Reply.
Dear Mr Ariel,
Thank you for your kind words on our March issue. It's always a pleasure to hear from our readers. You also asked a good question: Why was Dr V not mentioned on our cover? I have to explain that we have a lengthy and meticulous research process where every word written for RD is fact-checked independently by our Research Editor and a "research report" made, no matter who wrote it -- staff or outside writer, or me. Also, our covers have to be printed early. Before the March cover went to press, there were still several unfinished bits in the fact-checking process (in the Dr V article), and so I did not want to risk mentioning it on the cover, just in case it had to be rescheduled for the next month. Without a full research report, we don't publish anything. In fact I too would have been happy to have Dr V mentioned on our cover.
Best wishes,
Mohan Sivanand
If his peers will make note of such practice it will definitely increase the confidence of the writers and their readers.  No doubt their readers too are a kind of people like editors; they too find time to post their views or articles in their busy schedules. No doubt, Practically it’s a difficult thing to be in touch with all the people who are in touch with you people, but still you can find some time to do such things even in your busy schedules. Best Wishes.

സ്നേഹ തീരം

ലോക ചരിത്രത്തിന്റെ കേന്ദ്രവിഷയമായിരിക്കുന്ന ക്രിസ്തു സ്നേഹത്തിന്റെ മണിമകുടമാണ്. ആ സ്നേഹം അനുഭവിക്കുകയെന്നതു ജീവിതത്തിലെ ഏറ്റവും വലിയ ഭാഗ്യമാണ്. പലരും ചിന്തിക്കുന്നതു സ്നേഹതീരം എത്തിച്ചേരാനാകാത്തത്ര അകലെയാണെന്നാണ്. എന്നാൽ അതു മനുഷ്യർക്കു ഏറ്റവും അടുത്താണ്. ആ തീരത്തിൽ ധാരാളം മുത്തുണ്ട്. അതു കണ്ടെത്താൻ ഈ നോൾ ഒരു വഴികാട്ടിയാകട്ടെ എന്നു ആശംസിക്കുന്നു.

അതെ, ആ സ്നേഹവാനായ ക്രിസ്തുവിനെ, അല്ലങ്കില്‍ ആ സ്നേഹ തീരത്തേക്ക് അനേകരെ നമുക്ക് ആഹ്വാനം ചെയ്യാം അതിനായി എന്നേയും നിങ്ങളേയും ദൈവം തുടര്‍ന്നും എടുത്തുപയോഗിക്കട്ടെ എന്നു പ്രാര്‍ഥിക്കുന്നു. ഗൂഗിളിലെ ഈ പുതിയ അവസരം നമുക്കു പരമാവധി പ്രയോജനപ്പെടുത്താം. അതിനായി ഞാന്‍ താങ്കളെ സദയം ഇവിടെ/co-author ആയി ക്ഷണിക്കുന്നു.

Education and Childhood Memories:

P V 2008

PV school days
My Basic education was in Malayalam, a popular regional language in Kerala, one of India's southern states.  I have completed my Pre -University  education in English from St. Aloysius College, Edathua, Kerala, and  finished higher studies from Osmania University Hyderabad and Ranchi university). I have secured my Postgraduate diploma in Journalism from The Rajendra Prasad Institute of Mass Communication (Bhavan’s College) in Hyderabad.

I was an avid reader in my early days, and many of my Knols capture the memories of this time.
My Mother
As an example, you can read A Brief Memoir of My Mother. Saramma Verghese.  She was my source of inspiration in my writings, especially on my spiritual writings she had a great influence.

M E Cherian Sir
A knol on How I got my pen name "Ariel" and my encounter with a famous Malayalalam Poet and writer, commonly called Cheriyan Sir or MEC are some of my early experiences in my writing life. Read more here


I have translated some of the books and articles  of prominent authors in the English language into the Malayalam language.  Few of them are given below:
Dr. Woodrow Kroll: (President, Back to the Bible, Lincoln, Nebraska, USA), A popular speaker at such conference as 'The Cove", Bibletown and Word of Life'.  Author of numerous magazine articles and books  including  '7 Secrets to Spiritual Success, 'Empowered to Prayer'  "Giants of the Old Testament", "When God Doesn't Answer"  Removing Roadblocks to Answered Prayer etc).

A Word  About My Involvement with Google's Knol:

Though I have joined knol on September 23rd 2008 I was inactive for quite sometime and recently I started contributing again and it’s really interesting and encouraging to interact with people here, though I had some unpleasant experiences with few, but that was a blessing in disguise and it helped me to go further with more vigor and enthusiasm. And within a short span I could make it to the ‘Top Viewed Author Award’ list and could make comments and reviews to the other authors at knol.  I now introduce and encourage my friends and other contacts to join this community called KNOL  Though knol is still in its infancy thousands of contributors are already joined and it is a fast growing website to acquire genuine and trustworthy information about anything in this universe.  There is a good response to my call and few are already here with their knols on my invitation and doing a tremendous job here.
I take this opportunity to invite my other friends and readers to actively involve here at knol as well as to tell about this to their friends and relatives.  Knol is a wonderful place to air your knowledge, views on any subject.  Read More on this line- at my Official. Bio-knol

A Word About My Writing Experience:


The role of the Hindu newspaper describes some new experiences I had after leaving my native place. As I have mentioned in one of these Knols, I slowly shifted my writing from Malayalam to English. A good number of my works were published in the print media, and have procured many literary prizes for my writings.  My work has appeared in newspapers, weeklies, magazines and on the web, mainly on the Christian religion and the subjects related to the Bible. I have also concentrated on subjects like current affairs, social problems and politics with many of my political articles appearing in different print media. Some of them can be read at this link here at knol. Some of my Write-ups (Published and unpublished) - Part I

Before joining Knol I was an active member and source/content producer for the site called (AC).  I really enjoyed being with people there and had good rapport with many co-writers there.  From AC, I secured a good number of contacts in the writing field and I still maintains those relationships.  Two of the AC authors interviewed me. My first interview was with Mr. Donald Pennington of USA. Donald is an active member and source/content producer/contributor at AC, and a top 1000 and Hot 500 badge holder. Read more @ this link about that interview. Ladies and gentlemen P.V.Ariel
Another interview was published at AC by another Associated content writer Sheryl Young. She is a well known Jewish author and freelance writer and a three time Amy Foundation “Roaring Lambs” Writing Award Winner. She is also a Concerned Women for America 2002 Special Projects Award recipient. Sheryl is the Author of the book “What Every Christian Should Know About The Jewish People” Read more @ this link. Sheryl Young

I found three or four important suggestions from a successful Hub page author.

1. Give a twitter message for every article.
2. Give tags. In our case categories for every article.
3. Create backlinks on at least three platforms and on your blog.

I have too many knols. So I cannot post many backlinks. But some authors can follow the advice. It looked very logical to me.

Now, my project on Knol is Knol textbooks and Knol Books of readings. Textbooks take a lot of time. But they are required. Knol books of reading will be good to help many authors by collecting their knols at one place in a book form and inform the student community. This work has good meaning and potential and I shall be busy with both of them for years to come.

I just started a book on cost accounting for instance.

It is useful to support a training course that I just conducted last week. So far I did not find others' articles but in other chapters some articles by other authors will come. These collections also show scope to authors to write fresh articles.

With best regards.

Change the slogan into read one knol every week for promoting knol articles. Let us try to promote it among Indian readers and authors of knol as well as orkut, linked in etc. Once your hindi knol directory is available for public viewing, we shall promote it.

Knol Biodata

Mr. Ariel

Please link this knol as bio knol on your profile.
I thought of an idea. Each knol author can choose a theme and promote knols and knol writing in that area.

What area would you like to choose to promote knols and knol writing?

Dear Prof.
Thanks for this new intimation and the new idea.
I have already posted my area of interest in the comment column, hope you checked it, and I posted about this knol info in my twitter page and it will take it to my facebook page, and about other places i will do it shortly. By the way there is a great difficulty I am facing here is giving below, this problem has been posted to few other related places too. One of the main problem is that, take the case of yourself, you are already in my favourites list, but alas if you publish a new knol i do not get any intimation about it, the only option available here is one has to undergo a manual search, i feel its a tedious job and in the long run it will be more difficult. so pl look into the following comment:


I have a small request/suggestion to share with you and my fellow authors here @knol. I am here since 2008 September, I am really enjoyed being an associate with this wonderful site called “knol”. The communication between co-authors are so encouraging. Happy to say that everyone here is so co-operating in giving suggestions, comments and advises. A small difficulty I faced here is that, if a person post his or her knol there is no intimation about it to his fellow authors and regular readers/visitors (I mean his favorites/fan or subscribers). Most of the social sites, including google’s orkut etc. are providing this facility to its users, why can’t knol too provide such facilities to its users, so that if an author publish his knol others can immediately look into it and air their suggestions, comments, rating etc if he gets an email intimation through his personal id or through his knol.. unfortunately now one has to manually go thru each and every favs or fans. I am sure this will be a tedious process to the busy authors in the long run. Knol platform should seriously think about it and do something to help the knolers. I have made this known to some of my contacts and favs here, most of them expressed it’s a good thing to do and knol should take initiative in this.

One more thing I wanted to make note is that if suppose an author wants to communicate with another author its only possible thru the “write a comment button”, suppose one author wanted to inform something which others do not want to read, its only possible by requesting his email thru comment page, I think this too is not a good practice, since some do not want to publicize their email id on web pages. In such cases, like orkut or facebook, if knol can provide an inbox facility, this will definitely an added advantage to the authors as well as to the readers.

Hope and trust that knol help can give some solutions to this problems

I think a bit serious, I mean, you placed my name alongwith two areas of interest that is Politics and religion, that itself is wiped out, is it because its under the category of Open coll.? pl check.

Praise be to God's power

Vigor and enthusiasm comes only when we are beaten .God's power works to the Best in our weakness. Every bad thing becomes an advantage for those who have a heart to come up
