I moved to Augusta in 2008 to cover religion for the Chronicle. I didn't know a soul this far South at the time, but the area is quickly becoming home. Before then, I covered the cop beat and crime while working at a newspaper in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I got my start in Virginia writing features for a community weekly while in college.

God's Commanding Words

God's Commanding Words is based on a sermon series that the Rev. Gary Redding preached during his 22-year tenure as pastor of First Baptist Church of North Augusta.

The Rev. Gary Redding, former pastor of First Baptist Church of North Augusta, has published his first book, God's Commanding Words, on the Ten Commandments.
Redding says that though the Ten Commandments are frequently questioned for their relevance, they remain just as appropriate today as when they were issued on Mt. Sinai.
The book is based on a sermon series that Redding preached during his 22-year tenure as pastor of First Baptist.
The 117-page book was published by Parson's Porch Publishers, Cleveland, Tenn. The non-profit provides financial assistance, counseling and other services to people trying to improve their life situations.
