More About the Author
Once a nationally recognized sports columnist, he is now an ordained minister, serving All Saints Anglican Church in Durango, CO. For most of three decades, Ed Fowler wrote sports for the Austin American-Statesman, Kansas City Star, Chicago Daily News and Houston Chronicle, commenting on the exploits of elite athletes from the World Series and Super Bowl to the Olympics, Wimbledon and the British Open.
He is the author of Loser Takes All, a look at the machinations by which owner Bud Adams reincarnated the Houston Oilers as the Tennessee Titans for fun and profit. Fowler also hosted a daily sports talk show on Houston radio stations in the 1990s.
An avowed agnostic, he "suffered" a head-on collision with the Holy Spirit on Christmas Day 1994, just after his 47th birthday. Since that day, Fowler has worked in overseas missions and as a volunteer mentor and teacher with Prison Fellowship. After studying biblical languages at Dallas Theological Seminary he graduated from Cranmer Theological House with a master of divinity degree. He was ordained a deacon and then a presbyter and currently serves as vicar of All Saints Anglican Church in Durango, Colorado. He also teaches a weekly Bible study and mentors inmates in the La Plata County Jail.
"Immanuel! Thy Kingdom Has Come" is a collection of sermons grounded in the gospels that the eternal realm of our Lord Jesus is with us today in a way many Christians do not recognize. Fowler draws on his experiences in sports journalism - including an explosive encounter with a Hall of Fame defensive lineman - as well as in overseas missions and prison ministry.
