I watched the Star Wars movie when it was first released in 1977 and was totally engrossed by it. Fast forward thirty years or so and I watched The Truth Project DVD series at our church and was totally angered by it. I came away from this series believing that Western civilization and Christianity were being systematically circumvented by lies and distortions. My first thought was to write something to refute macro-evolution, so I went to the bookstore and bought a Microbiology for Dummies book. Being a former English/History major who barely got through high school biology, I soon realized that I wasn’t equipped for this task. I later read somewhere that you should “write what you know.” I asked myself, “What do I know?” and came to the conclusion that I knew the Bible pretty well, so perhaps I could write something about that which was exciting and engaging. During this same period a former pastor of mine encouraged me to study the book of Ephesians in the Bible. The image of The Wall came to me as I was running on the treadmill and memorizing Ephesians 1. This was immediately followed by an explanation in my mind of what it meant. I wrote The Wall because I wondered what it would be like to actually go there, and because I wanted to understand what really goes on the heavenly realms, based on what has been revealed to us through creation and the Bible.
