Quick Overview

Remember those long summer Sabbath afternoons

Your children were soon climbing the walls from inactivity, and you had run out of ideas for things for them to do–things that not only would keep them occupied but were worth doing and were enjoyable besides. Here is the book that will keep such days from happening again.

Born out of a desire to make Sabbaths enjoyable for the author’s own family, this 52 Things to Do on the Sabbath offers practical suggestions for things that will involve both adult and child and turn the day into a delight.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Glen Robinson


Glen Robinson is a communication professor at Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, Texas as well as general manager of the campus radio station KJCR-FM. He views his present responsibilities as a culmination of twenty-five years of communication work for the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Previously, Glen served ten years as a book and magazine editor for Pacific Press« Publishing Association. While there, he was responsible for product research for Pacific Press« and spent two years as associate editor of Listen magazine. As co-editor he helped launch and direct ParentTalk magazine.

Before that, he worked in hospital public relations for seven years, first at Hinsdale Hospital in Illinois (1980-1982) and then at Paradise Valley Hospital in San Diego, California (1982-1988). He started his communication career as managing editor of the church periodical, the Pacific Union Recorder in 1975, serving for five years under the tutelage of Pacific Union Conference communication director Shirley Burton.

Glen earned a B.A. in communication from Pacific Union College in 1975 and an M.A. in Information and Communication studies at California State University, Chico. He is presently involved in doctoral studies at the University of North Texas.

If Tomorrow Comes is Glen's sixth published book. He is the author of 52 Things to Do on Sabbath, published by Review and Herald Publishing Association in 1984, as well as four children's books in the Shoebox Kids series by Pacific Press «. In addition, he has had scores of stories and articles published in various church publications.

"As with all my writing projects, If Tomorrow Comes started when several thoughts came together over several years," says Glen. "Many Christians become complacent about the end time, thinking that events have to happen a certain way in order for Jesus to come. I wanted to approach the story in a way that hadn't been handled before. In addition, rather than dealing with events on a worldwide scale, I wanted to show it on a personal levelùhow it would affect a family."

Glen lives in Cleburne, Texas with his wife, Shelly, who is a registered nurse; his son, Matt, who is a student at Southwestern; and his daughter, Missy, who is a student at Chisholm Trail Academy in Keene.
