About the Author
After working for a number of years in publishing with the Trinitarian Bible Society and then as a farm secretary in Yorkshire he moved to Basel in Switzerland with his wife and two teenaged sons where he studied German and theology. Since 1989 he and his wife Phyl have lived in the Black Forest in southern Germany and currently run ‘Haus Barnabas’, a Christian guest house to which they welcome guests from all over the world.

Leonard is one of Selina’s many great great grandchildren and was born in Brighton on the 69th birthday of her grandson, Ebenezer Dan Holder, his grandfather. He inherited a real love for the countryside and was brought up in a home where God was reverenced and the Bible was read and respected as God’s inspired word. As a teenager he was convicted of the need of a personal faith in Jesus Christ and felt the call to preach the Gospel Jesus commissioned his followers to proclaim, For several years he preached in some of the same Sussex chapels that Selina’s husband Eli had helped to establish and in the early 1970’s was pastor of Providence Strict Baptist Chapel Horley, across the border in Surrey. Sadly this chapel was later demolished to make way for a shopping development.
