A bio statement from Paul:

To satisfy the curiosity of the local academic culture, Paul has studied at St. John’s College, Winfield, Concordia Senior College, University of Kansas, et. al.  His plan to be a Lutheran Pastor was redirected by the Lord, toward industrial manufacturing and marketing, with parallel interests in real estate.  Throughout his life, Biblical studies have been his North Star.  He has written notations on translating the Gospel of John from the original Greek, and Bible studies on the Holy Spirit, as well as anthologies on Old Testament chronology, prayer, Bible passages, etc.  His goal is to be God’s child, servant, and heir to eternal life.  He and his bride, Andrea, have resided near State College, PA for 36 years, and have recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.  They have been blessed with two children and four grandchildren.
