IN A NUTSHELL – Since the day Adam and Eve sacrificed paradise God has persistently longed to reveal the Good News of His plan of salvation for His creation. The prophets captured man’s anticipation in the picture of a Herald announcing victory from the mountain tops. The good news of salvation means the most to those who thought they could never hear such news. When they in turn are able to share that Good News with others that feared the worst there is a “taste of heaven.”
