About the author Thomas Eristhee was converted in his teens when a young man in his community came and witnessed to him. He spent several years in the church learning about God and all aspects of church life-teaching Sunday school, preaching at weekly services and serving as the president of the youth department. Thomas then felt the Spirit of God impressing upon his heart to attend Bible school. After a few years of indecision, he decided to heed God's call upon his life. Thomas left his small business and attended the West Indies School of Theology, where he obtained a Diploma in Theology. After graduation he returned to his homeland, St. Lucia in the West Indies, and started pastoring at a Pentecostal church. That church experienced much growth under his leadership. Bishop Eristhee holds a diploma from the West Indies School of Theology, and a Graduate Diploma of Ministry with Glory Word Seminar in Malaysia. He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the Caribbean College of the Bible International. He also attended the Stephen Olford Center for Biblical Preaching, U.S. A. He received his Master of Ministry Degree with Trinity Theological Seminary, U.S.A., and his Doctor of Ministry with Covington Theological Seminary, U.S.A.
