Dean Taylor and his wife Tania were both in the U. S. Army when they realized that, as committed Christians, they had to come to grip with these question in a new and sincere quest for truth.

They preferred to make a radical break with 1,500 years of history and culture if necessary rather than to break with the New Testament.”
