Donkey Tales, the debut book from veteran Bible teacher Keith Alexis released today from WordCrafts Press for the release of his first book.
Alexis believes life is a story and all things, both the good and bad, contribute to each person’s narrative. It is through these experiences God gives us fresh wisdom.
“I’ve been teaching/preaching for about 29 years,” Alexis explains. “It seemed a natural progression to put some of what I have learned in print. Donkey Tales emerged from an original Sunday school series that I taught. It seemed to be such a unique idea that resonated easily with everyone in the class and those who heard about it were quite interested in the premise. If the study was successful on a local level, I figured there may be others out there that would be interested in joining the fun.”
Born in Texas while his father was attending Bible College, Alexis grew up the son of a pastor and evangelist. After completing his studies at the same Bible College from which his father graduated Alexis entered the ministry, serving as a youth pastor for two years in Louisiana and another five years in Arkansas.
For nine years he toured as bass guitarist with Tinman Jones, a Christian band that charted five Top 20 hits, with two singles climbing into the Top 10. The responsibility of delivering the Gospel message to the crowd at the end of the each night’s concert fell to Alexis.
Far from being insulated from the world inside the ‘Christian bubble,’ Alexis gained real-world experience working for more than a decade as an instrumentation technician at a chemical plant, and currently owns and operates a successful web development and graphic design business, Astonished Man Design. “I also recorded a failed attempt at selling health insurance in Dallas,” he quips.
Alexis lives with his wife Terri in Arkansas where he teaches a weekly adult Sunday school class, leads a Wednesday night young adult worship service, plays bass guitar on the worship team and serves in other areas of local lay ministry.
Donkey Tales by Keith Alexis is published by WordCrafts Press and distributed by Ingram Books.
