Man of Steel

I decided to let you take a break from introducing myself from my book and look at something current.

Like many boys from my generation, I was enthralled with comic books. Visits to the barber shop were much more tolerable upon finding a table laden with comics there. I even spent some of my hard earned allowance on my own comics. I appreciated visits to my cousin, Kenny, who owned hundreds. Favorites were Superman, Spiderman, Daredevil and The Fantastic Four. These had a profound effect on me, instilling a desire to be more than who I felt I was, to be the hero myself. There also was an important lesson that one person can make a difference. They encouraged me to enjoy reading and added to my vocabulary. Doubt I would have ever learned such words as nemesis, impervious, and invulnerable without them.

Superman seemed to be the most virtuous comic book character. He always did right, never shirked his duty and put others before himself.  I, for one, am glad he is back in the limelight. How about you? Who were your favorites?

Kent Dickerson is a Christian writer, teacher, singer and lecturer. He calls his blog, “Remade Preacher”. The reason why that title was chosen was because God brought him back to full time ministry after leaving it for thirty years. The primary reason for leaving Pastoral Ministry was a deep-seated struggle with pornography. He facilitates two seminars. -Spiritual Battle Plan, The Path To Victory and -Spiritual Battle Plan, the Armor Of God. In both courses he calls upon men to first get into the battle against the sin in their lives and then to find new ways to call upon the Almighty God to lead, strengthen and protect them. He also emphasizes helping each other as brothers. In addition, versions of Spiritual Battle Plan are being developed for both men and women learners. A new class/seminar, Be Transformed, is now available as well. During the “Be Transformed” Seminar Kent teaches the art of analyzing one’s thinking patterns in order to allow renewing-of-the-mind transformation so that one can then devote one’s time to contemplating God. Kent is currently authoring a book tentatively titled, “Remade! A preacher finds victory over pornography and complaint.” He is also working on recording his first EP and videos Kent is from Abilene, Texas where he attended Abilene Christian University. He currently lives in Pyeongtaek, South Korea as part of the U.S. military community.
