ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dr. Francis Nigel Lee was born in 1934 in the Westmorland County of Cumbria (in Great Britain). He is the great-grandson of a fiery preacher whose family disintegrated when he backslid. Dr. Lee’s father was an Atheist, yet he married a Roman Catholic who raised her son Nigel Lee in that faith. Yet, when Nigel was seven, his father led him into Atheism. During World War II, the Royal Navy appointed Nigel Lee’s father Chief Radar Officer (South Atlantic). So the family then moved to South Africa. There, Nigel became a Calvinist; had the great privilege of leading both of his parents to Christ; and then became a Minister of God’s Word and Sacraments in the Dutch Reformed Church of Natal and an Advocate (Barrister) of the Supreme Court of South Africa. Emigrating to the U.S.A., Dr. Lee attended the very first General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America; transferred his ministerial credentials to that denomination; and pastored Congregations in Mississippi and Florida. He was also: Professor of Philosophy at Shelton College in N.J.; Visiting Lecturer in Apologetics at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Ms.; Staley Distinguished Visiting Lecturer at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis; Research Scholar-in-Residence at the Christian Studies Center in Memphis; Academic Dean of Graham Bible College in Bristol, Tn.; and incidental Lecturer at several other Colleges, Seminaries, and Universities. He was at that time the only person in the World serving on the Executives of both the British Lord’s Day Observance Society and the Lord’s Day Alliance of the U.S. Preacher, Theologian, Lawyer, Educationist, Historian, Philosopher and Author, Lee has produced more than 330 publications (including many books) – and also a multitude of long unpublished manuscripts. Apart from an honorary LL.D., he has 21 earned degrees – including eleven earned doctorates for dissertations in Education, Law, Literature, Philosophy and Theology. Lee has visited 110 countries; and every Continent except Antarctica. He is in demand as a Promoter of Doctoral Students in Australia, England, Germany, South Africa and the U.S. He has lectured and/or preached in all of those countries – as well as in Brazil, Scotland, Korea, Japan, Namibia, New Zealand, and Zambia.
