Robert’s goal for this four book series is to create something that would appeal to who “he was” as a teen…a skeptic who didn’t attend church or ever read the Bible, but loved reading comics
. According to Robert, “I try to keep a balance between entertainment and enlightenment. If reading my books can lead even a handful of young people to want to pick up the source material, (the Bible), than I’ve been successful in my mission with the series!” And apparently he is, as pastor/author Michael Brewer wrote, “Eye Witness will connect with kids who wouldn’t be caught dead reading the Bible!”
