More About the Author
Rev. Abraham Park began his ministry in Dongmasan church in 1958 after his discharge from military as a wounded veteran from gunshot wounds inflicted during the Ko-rean War.
With conviction that “to die is to live,” he prayed for 47 days on Mt. Jang-an, and 3 years, 6 months, and 7 days on Mt. Jiri!
When the sun set, he did nothing but pray; when the sun rose, he did nothing but read the Bible. Then, finally, a single ray of grace shone upon him! through the powerful illumination of the Holy Spirit and by the grace of God, the scenes in the Bible unfolded like a panorama before his eyes.
These scenes were written down on large arrowroot leaves which were bound with a twig. They were later transcribed onto paper bought from a village under the mountain every few months. This is how The History of Redemption series began.
Rev. Park was highly commended by the religious community in Korea as a “true pastor who was committed to the inerrancy of the Bible and conservative theology.” On December 17, 2014, he passed on from this world and returned to the bosom of God.
