If you liked The Healer Messiah or this blog you can do three things for me.
One is to tell your friends about it.
The second is to write a review or critique or simple thanks. You can put it in a comment below, or on Amazon, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The last is to donate to the Center for Interfaith Engagement at Eastern Mennonite University, to support the work of the Healer Messiah in conflicts. I do not profit from your donation (I volunteer there), anything you can give is appreciated. No amount is too small, nor too large.
I am a Research Fellow at Eastern Mennonite University's Center for Interfaith Engagement. I've lived in Canada, Germany, Belgium, France, and the United States, and served under Mennonite Central Committee in Congo (Kinshasa) in the early 70's, and in Nepal in the late '90's. My Ph.D. in Computer Science is from Duke University, 1981.
I was professor of Computer Science at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, teaching there for nearly twenty years. In 1992 I cofounded Rosetta Stone (rosettastone.com) with my brothers-in-law Allen and Eugene Stoltzfus, and was VP of Research and Development there until my retirement in 2006.
My wife Kathryn is a retired attorney, mediator and trainer of mediators. We raised four sons in Bridgewater, Virginia, where we now enjoy twelve grandchildren. We are members of Park View Mennonite Church.
Why rruuuaacchh? Because of Ruach, the language developed in The Healer Messiah, and because nobody else on the web uses the doubled spelling so it makes rruuaacchh easy to find, and because rruuaacchh looks windblown.
