“Behind the Scenes”
Behind the Scenes is filled with moments of humor and tenderness combined with insights that capture the heart and purpose of the “Glory of Christmas” and “Glory of Easter” pageants at the world famous Crystal Cathedral . . . telling the story of Jesus. Nearly thirty years of pageantry is portrayed in the 200+ photos and personal stories. The book is the only historical pictorial account of the pageants.

Reader’s Comments about “Glory Stories”
“I am moved and excited by your marvelous portrayal of the experiences of flying angels, even the angel who did a surprise somersault. Your understanding of people involved from the story of “The Bread Lady” to the “Tower Lady” were full of compassion, wisdom, and heartfelt humor. The Maundy Thursday story of ‘Is it I Lord, Is it I?’ was especially meaningful to me as the word of our Lord on Forgiveness, a constant struggle in our own lives to attain.”
