Welcome to the official website of Dennis Wharton! This site is a multipurpose site dedicated to promoting the author’s books but also a springboard to the blog where other author’s are encouraged to share their works or short articles. I love stories and enjoying telling them. It has always been an exciting time for me if I can get a few children gathered around and make up some fun stories that will include them with things happening in their lives. My first book was a fiction book that allowed me to be creative with my imagination. My second book “The High Calling of God” allowed me to share some of my passion for God’s word and the wonder of it’s teachings. Having been the Pastor of a Baptist church for over 50 years has given me information that I enjoy sharing with any who will listen. I hope you will find something on this site that will make your day a little brighter. Thanks for stopping by.
Hot Off the Press
The Book Every Christian Will Want in Their Library
Down through the ages the questions about who the Bride of Christ will be and who will be part of this people who will rule and reign with Christ have been asked! Now a book has been written that has answers to these questions and many more.
This book could have been titled, “Everything you ever wanted to ask about the Bride of Christ, but were afraid to ask.
FORWARD FROM THE BOOK
It is an honor and privilege to be asked by the author of this book to write a brief forward. I have personally known the author for some fifty years. I count him as one of my dearest friends. I have found him to be a caring and compassionate pastor and a man who stands up boldly for the truth of God’s Word.
The subject he has chosen for this book should be of great importance to every believer, because it is of great importance to God. The New Testament Church will endure throughout all the ages as the Bride of Christ. In the Western culture the focus at weddings is always on the bride, but in Biblical times, and in the wedding planned by our Heavenly Father, the focus will be on the Groom, Jesus Christ and the Bride’s relationship to Him.
There are several unique things about this book. Having had the privilege of reading the manuscripts ahead of publication, I was first taken by the writer’s approach to the subject as only he could do. When I finished one chapter I anxiously awaited the next chapter to see what was to be revealed on the next page. Another unique thing about this book is the fact that it meets the need of the theologian, teacher, church member or your average reader. The writer proves to have a good grasp of his subject and Bible doctrine. This will help the pastor prepare messages, the teacher prepare lessons and the church member to be stronger in the faith.
Brother Dennis Wharton has proven himself as a faithful pastor and teacher. He has made some wonderful contributions to the Churches of California through Bible Seminars, Missions and Church Camp. I believe that this book, when properly read and studied, will prove one of his greatest contributions. He has the courage to stand and present the truth of God’s Word with zeal and compassion. Brother Wharton has suffered several serious health problems that have hindered him some physically, however, spiritually he remains strong in the service of the Lord.
A suggestion: As you read this book, you will be tempted to turn to the last chapters. DON’T do it! Read and absorb each line, paragraph and page before turning to the next. Be certain you have fed and digested each and every truth before you finally get to the dessert.
