Randy attended Multnomah School of the Bible (now Multnomah University) in the master’s program in the late 1970s. His theology teacher, Dr. Joseph Wong, wrote a note on one of his papers. “You should consider being a writer,” he said. He took it to heart.
As a pastor in the 1980s, Randy was burdened by the number of Christians he saw devastated by sexual immorality. He started writing a book addressing this huge problem. In 1985 his first book, Christians in the Wake of the Sexual Revolution, was published by Multnomah Press, then the college’s publishing arm.
