The articles which appear here come from two sources:

  1. From an evangelistic publication which I produced a number of years ago entitled Bible Illustrator
  2. From the weekly bulletin which we produce at the Tanglewood Church of Christ in Odessa, Texas
Articles with my name on them may be reproduced freely without further permission from me. I would appreciate credit in a form such as, "By Richard Cravy, from" Articles by other authors should include their name(s) and as the source.
Each article is made available in both a Adobe Acrobat Reader format (PDF) and the RTF format readable by almost all word processing and desktop publishing programs. Some articles include illustrations or charts in the common JPG format, which may be used as well.
