Introducing Leroy Lakey, author of …What You Heard Is Not What I Meant!

“I am very pleased with my experience with Outskirts Press. This is my first book and was looking for a very affordable way to get it published. At the price that I paid, I didn’t expect to get any extra benefits or suggestions. But what I did get was a great Publishing Consultant, Jerry, and a really great Author Representative, Jamie, who helped me work through several problems that I was experiencing. And after the book was published in record time, they are giving me many great suggestions to market my book with their Outskirts Press marketing Coach. I got all of this with a very reasonable low production cost.”

Leroy Lakey is from Indiana with a background in Quantum physics and science and engineering. He has a strong desire to study and understand Biblical scripture.

Book description…

There is an old quotation which has been attributed to Alan Greenspan that says “I know that you believe that you think you understand what you thought you heard me say, but what you don’t realize is that what you heard is not what I meant.” In trying to understand the Bible, people think of this quote and wonder “What is God trying to say?” People who read the Bible have many questions and can interpret verses many different ways. All of us tend to just accept someone else’s answers about the scriptures without giving it much thought. How do we answer the problem of creation? The “sermon on the mount” and the “prodigal son” parable have more to say to me than just a list of blessings and a story about a child gone astray. In this book, Lakey shares his insights and hopes that within these pages that you are given some thoughts that you have not considered before and will get interested in finding your own answers.
