About DC Robertsson
Bible guy, "renaissance man" style career in both nice and nasty environments across three continents, driven to dig to the root of issues and their solutions.
Writing about things learned through the crucible of life, and things I wish I knew in my 20's.
God rightly says that in this life we "look in a mirror dimly". However that does not mean we have to stumble about blindly.

If you’re checking out this book, there is a good chance you - or someone you care about - have experienced damaging consequences at the hands of a genuine narcissist. Maybe you didn’t realize you were dealing with a narcissist at first, but the pain and damage caused by this selfish, arrogant, condescending, and domineering person might have driven you to search for answers about what was going on, and how to deal with them. As you searched online or in books, you collected the conventional wisdom available, but feel there is still more to it.
While the Bible does not use the exact term "narcissism" - a word from Greek mythology - it most certainly speaks to the subject. In fact, if you look carefully, you might be surprised at just how much and how directly Scripture speaks about narcissism and narcissistic people.
The First Will Be Last: A Biblical Perspective on Narcissism is just what the title says - an A-Z look at the Biblical perspective on these toxic people; including who they are, how they got that way, and how to deal with them. From key words to Biblical case studies, it will unlock a new perspective and provide a framework in your search for truth.

Is the global pandemic a sign we're approaching the end? How much time do we have left? How can we prepare?
A friend recently surprised me at lunch by saying that many of his friends actively discussed the approaching return of Christ. I thought I was alone in feeling that we’re getting close.
Could we actually be at the end? How are we to know? Which of the rapture positions are correct – pre-trib, post-trib, or pan-trib (it will all pan out in the end)? And how do we prepare for what’s coming our way?
Until now we had the luxury to debate what the Scripture says, but at the actual end that debate crashes into reality. When we are close to God’s destination our views will have real-world implications on how we proceed, and how to prepare.
God has provided “trip instructions” on the road to the end. And He has provided a key signpost which will tell us which set of instructions are correct.
As the title says, Time To Prepare: Signposts On The Road To The End outlines
the Biblical signposts on the road to the end
the key signpost that will tell us which side of “the debate” is actually true
practical Biblical advice for what’s coming our way
The clear Biblical perspective in these pages will give you a solid base, and hope, for what looks to be a bumpy ride ahead.
From adulting to midlife to pre and post retirement, life seems to be an endless grind. There’s always the hope of conquering the next hill, but the next summit invariably disappoints. The futility of it all might be a background hum, but when you listen, it’s there – no matter how successful you are.
Escape From Futility provides the Biblical solution. Starting with one of the most successful people who ever lived - Solomon - it outlines the cause of this futility and God's key to escape, finishing with eleven practical ways to make it work in daily life.
