From the Author
I have been involved in many things in my life, designing and manufacturing furniture, electrical sales, running a construction business, marketing French perfume, college lecturing in computing, radio presenting and production, TV documentaries ...
I've also been a professional writer for over twenty years - firstly writing a regular series and other articles, reviews and reports for UK technical magazines. From 1990-96 I edited and published the Irish magazine, 'Bread,' releasing a book from this in 1995. Since then I've been involved in media of all kinds - from web design, to podcasting, satellite and internet radio - and documentary TV production.
My first book, 'The Whore and her Mother', originally developed out of one episode in a radio series, which has been broadcasting on satellite around most of the world. This book covers some of the ground in WHM, but is mainly a response to the commonly held evangelical belief (especially in USA and the west) that believers will soon be 'beamed up' away from all trouble, persecution - and any responsibility to evangelise!
What a shock these people will get when it eventually dawns on them that the 'secret rapture' hasn't happened and they find themselves ill prepared for the coming tribulation and persecution - already being experienced by other believers in many parts of the world. I would hope to spare them that embarrassment and, more importantly, prepare them for the persecution that is coming.
About the Author
Raymond McCullough, from Co. Down, near Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been a professional writer for over twenty years. Beginning with technical articles and reports for UK magazines, he then published the Irish Christian magazine, 'Bread', from 1990-96, with his first book, 'Ireland – now the good news!' in 1995; (co-edited by his wife, fiction author, Gerry McCullough). He has also had articles published in the Irish Times, Dublin, and the Presbyterian Herald, Belfast. He hosts the 'In tha Name a' Gawd!' and 'Fresh Bread' satellite radio shows, plus 'Celtic Roots Radio' – a regular 30-minute show of Celtic, folk, folk-rock, Breton, Galician, bluegrass, Cajun, Cape Breton, acoustic and singer/songwriter music, broadcasting on satellite and podcast on iTunes. For seven years, he and Gerry led a cell-based Christian fellowship in the Belfast area – also producing an album of Celtic & Hebrew worship music, 'Into Jerusalem' (2005) and a Celtic pop-folk album, 'Different' (2008). His 'Kingdom Come Trust' ministry website (kingdomcome.org.uk) has hundreds of enthusiastic emails from satellite radio listeners in US, Canada and other countries. Raymond says, "They love the Irish music and culture – although the interviewees are from many parts of the world." Raymond has researched bible prophecy for about forty years, off and on, but the events of 9/11 brought an urgent focus to his research. He is also working on a TV documentary, filmed mainly in Canada, entitled, 'Broken Treaties.'
