CONSIDERING WISDOM

Posted by Elfriede

Another day closer to meeting our Lord!

And another day closer to our book promotion, speaking and signing tour through 10 US States in April/May 2020. We are in the planning phase which is quite exciting.

You can find updates, event locations, dates and times on Facebook and Twitter .


We submitted the manuscript for “Considering Wisdom” to our publisher WestBow Press hoping that the book will be ready to take on our book tour together with “Calling from the Sky” and “Digging Deep into the Revelation of Jesus Christ”.


Calling from the Sky” is a Biographical Fiction which is inspired by true events in the author’s life who served 26 plus years in the US Air Force. He served nine years with the Wings of Blue Parachute Team and as the Superintendent of Parachuting Operations at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

When asked why he wrote “Calling from the Sky” Mike says: “CALLING FROM THE SKY was prompted by the deep gratitude I have for life. I experienced many “close calls” mostly during seventeen years and over 2000 parachute jumps, and one day my oldest son, Don, said to me, “Dad, you should write those stories down so they don’t get lost.” This began an autobiography which evolved into a more exciting thriller (since I didn’t think anyone would want to read about me, Mike Copple). So the truth became faction (fact/fiction). Part of the fiction are the Russian spies who try to take revenge and kill “Luke” by sabotaging his parachute.”


Digging Deep into the Revelation of Jesus Christ” is a Study Guide for the Book of Revelation. Mike was inspired to work on this study guide by a verse in Revelation. “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near,” Revelation 1:3.

And with all the madness, violence and divisions in today’s society the Book of Revelation is remarkably relevant, and the time for Christ’s return is surely imminent.


“Considering Wisdom” is going to be a controversial book which touches on many issues relevant to today’s society. This is how Mike describes the book:

“It brings to light the many facets of indoctrination and compares false doctrine to sound doctrine. It is written with the aspiration that the contents maintain a tone of respect and gentleness which permit all readers from every background to hear the message it renders. The author admits to being indoctrinated, but discerns he is indoctrinated with sound doctrine rather than false doctrine. Of course, everyone has free will to believe that their own schooling is what really is true. However, many points are made in an attempt to prove there is only one absolute truth when wisdom is seriously and honestly regarded. The writer acknowledges that he cannot force any change onto anyone, but the Source used for explanations can certainly get a person’s attention if one is willing to listen.”

Author: Mike and Elfriede

During his parachuting years Mike experienced a mishap of being a “hung jumper” outside the aircraft, and serious parachute malfunctions like a deadly seesaw night jump entanglement with another jumper, and an 85 mph wind shear which almost took his life. This experience inspired and qualified him to author the novel Calling from the Sky.
