Just Remembering 

A young Christian woman and friend of mine, Lenaya Casados, has encouraged me to write this book which is about some of the interesting or funny things which have happened as I have traveled down the road of my life as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon

For the First Time in My Life 

As I began to even think on this subject and how the world seemed to be twirling around us all, I began to think not only of my ten children and then their children, and their children’s children, but also of children all over the world. I suppose from time immemorial, each generation has built into them the desire to leave the world a better place for those who come after. I know that has certainly been my heart.

It seems obvious to even the casual observer, that something is happening in our once beloved America, that the future will not be as bright and rosy as we have always thought and for which we had believed and prayed for. I believe that for those who follow in our footsteps, the world and our Nation is on a slippery slope. I'm not saying all is bad, or there is no hope. What I am saying is that some positive changes and choices must be made.

It is my hope that this short and briefly told story of the times which I have lived, will cause other eyes to open and reflect on "How do we gain our moral position and the integrity which we once saw in America?" It is my belief it will never happen unless we turn our eyes back on our God. You may believe differently, but I'm not a gambling man, just an old surgeon, but I would stake my life on the course and action I feel we have to make. It's all found in His Holy Bible.

The Enemy Camp 

"This is a book which makes the Christian reader consider whether he or she is truly living up to the words and admonition of Jesus found in Matthew 5:43-45. In that scripture, Jesus is admonishing his followers to not only love their neighbor but to show your love to those who may be in the enemy camp.
In this book, The Enemy Camp, the authors address these points in seven different chapters in which Dr. Christensen describes his own challenges in showing that godly love for those who definitely attempted to come against him or harm him in one way or another. This is certainly a book that has made the three individuals involved in putting the story together as a book, think about whether their own lives were being lived in accordance with Jesus' teaching."
