More About the Author

Originally from Hamilton, Ohio, Tim Stevenson (1953- ) moved south to attend Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas in 1971, and still lives in the area today.

He earned a degree from the Cox School of Business at SMU, with a second major in English, and was planning to launch a career in business when his life was suddenly changed. Previously a hostile, angry skeptic of religions in general, and of Christianity in particular, Tim emerged from a period of intense investigation convinced that Jesus Christ is the way, truth, and life. He became a Christian at age 25, and entered the ministry six months later.

He spent the next 15 years working for two parachurch ministries, serving as vice president of the first and executive director of the second. Then he became senior pastor of Crossroads Bible Church, where he continued for 13 years.

In 2006 he made a transition to private practice as an executive coach, which led to a position as director of leadership development and coaching for physicians and managers at a large healthcare company, and was later promoted to Director of Employee Relations. In that capacity, he also began his e-newsletter, Leading Insights, in which he writes articles on leadership applications, managing principles, and tips for personal effectiveness. In 2013 Tim resigned to return to independent executive coaching and leadership training, which he continues today. His professional website: www.stevensoncoaching.com.

Always interested in writing, Tim has written 8 published books to date, but only two have his name on them. This is because he has developed a side interest in ghost-writing books for other authors on both Christian living themes and business subjects.

In 2000 one of his dreams was realized with the publication of The Bema, a fictional account of one man's transportation to the heavenly realm, where his life is reviewed by the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bema has also had a fruitful life as a drama, with several stage adaptations being performed around the world. Besides The Bema, Tim has written and self-published Living Insight Out, a compact discussion of Chritian living.

Format: Hardcover
Businessman Daniel Mathewson discovers that the way we conduct ourselves daily determines how we experience eternity. Thinking he is beginning just another ordinary day, he encounters THE DAY: the rapture of the church into the heavenlies. Escorted by his guardian angel into the heavenly realm, Daniel observes the wonders of Heaven, talks with angels, and learns to see life from a totally new, Divine perspective.

The first order of business is now the Bema, the Jugdment Seat of Jesus Christ. Millions of saints from every era and nation stand individually before Christ to be evaluated. While all possess eternal life and salvation in Christ, they receive different rewards and degrees of heavenly glory.

When Daniel appears before the Bema Seat, the Lord gives him truly accurate self-knowledge for the first time in his life. More than anything else, Dan longs to hear the words "Well done, My good and faithful servant!" - But, has his life really earned that supreme reward?

The certainty of this day of reckoning has profound implications for the way believers should live here and now. "The Bema" presents this eternal biblical truth in a stimulating, interesting, and understandable way, and helps Christians focus on living in the light of THE DAY rather than merely for today.

Through the agency of one man's realistic life story, "The Bema" paints a vivid and plausible picture of what it will be like when we all stand before the Judgment Seat of Jesus Christ. It is a gripping, relevant, and challenging read. A story so powerful you will want to read it in one sitting.

You will want to read this book in one sitting; you won't be able to put it down. White knuckle ride from the rapture of the Church to the believer's judgment -- The Bema. You've read the Left Behind books, and they leave you wondering what you as a Christian will be doing in heaven while the Tribulation is going on on earth. This is the story of one man, Daniel Matthewson, and his journey to the Bema -- conversations with his guardian angel, meeting Christains who have lived throughout history, and facing Jesus to get His perspective of Dan's life. Very well written, easy to read and understand. Super twists at the end.

Format: Hardcover
The Bema is an eye opener. I love this book. I saw a play done that was basted on this book. That's where I got the book. I read this book and loved it.
It's about this man who goes to Heaven in the Rapture, and while he's there he has to go before the Bema, the Judgment Seat of Christ and be judged for all that he did wile he was on the earth.
Let me tell you when you read this book you get convicted. It makes you watch what you do and say. For everyone you do and say will be judged by God! And that's a good enough reason for me to watch what I do and say!
This book can change your life. It's a good thrilling story, with a very, very, VERY, good morel to it! Get it, Read it, and let it make you think twice about your life and the way your living it!!!
READ IT!!!

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. The author takes you captive from the beginning. You will not want to eat or sleep until you read the entire book. We, as believers, need to be reminded often that each daily decision will reap reward if we choose to "follow Christ" and listen to that "still small voice" that guides us through all trials and tribulations.
Uriel is a delight and I truly believe that we each have our own "Uriel" watching over us. It is almost scary to think that even in our failures of the flesh that our guardians still watch over us and never leaves us.
This is a MUST READ! I have been in the Christian book industry for years and I am not sure why I had not found this gem before. I will most definately keep this book on my book tables that I do for conferences.

Format: Hardcover
After first seeing the theatrical presentation of The Bema and then reading it, I am in awe at the gifts that God has bestowed upon Tim Stevenson. The book is so detailed yet undescript that you get entranced and find it hard to believe that you've been reading for two hours. You fly through the life of Daniel Scott Matthewson and his supposed final hours on earth. Then you go with him to heaven where he meets his guardian angel, Uriel, right before the Bema. It's amazing to see how 'elastic' time really will be in heaven. At the judgement seat of Christ, Daniel sees the trash that was his life burned away. Then there's the surprise ending. Can't tell you what happens but it kindof makes you angry. Buy the book! I would like to compare this to some other book but I have read none like it. It is kindof like the other side of the Left Behind books. We know what happened on earth, what happened in Heaven?

Format: Hardcover
The Bema provides an opportunity to refine your perspective of heaven. After reading the book I found myself thinking more about what God thinks about how I respond to things, what I say, how I treat other people and what is in store after I die. The book is fictional but parallels many things that are taught in the Bible about what we can expect in heaven. What an exciting adventure we have ahead of us. The Bemma is a very thought provoking piece of literature.
