Screen Shot 2015-06-17 at 4.34.04 PMIn honor of Father’s Day, we wanted to highlight 4word supporter, author, and father of two 4word women, Jack Minter. Jack and his father-in-law, Max Dillard, are long-time supporters of 4word and our mission. “I’m proud to support an organization that has done so much to support my daughters,” said Jack. Jack is set to release Saul of Tarsus: The First Terrorist, a unique historical/fictional account of Saul and how his sin of pride ultimately drove him against Jesus and his followers.
