History and Mystery

Bernie Calaway is a retired Navy chaplain and biblical scholar, positions attained not without some struggle. He's a native Texan who quickly learned he'd be a happier minister than a cotton farmer on the high plains. Now, in active retirement, he writes, draws, takes regular naps, and tries to keep the squirrels off the back stoop. Bernie is the author of eight nonfiction books and two collections of entertaining fables. Titles in the marketplace today include Revealing the Revelation, Discernment from Daniel, Revelation for Regular Readers, Operation Revelation: A Teen's Guide to Earth's Final Curtain (with a co-author), and Oracles from Olivet: The Eschatological Jesus. The latest is a five volume encyclopedia of biblical terms entitled History and Mystery: The Complete Eschatological Encyclopedia of Prophecy, Apocalypticism, Mythos, and Worldwide Dynamic Theology. 101 Fun Fables is a treasury of animal fables, stories that are both practicable and whimsical.
Other publications include over 100 newspaper and magazine articles, poems, and essays in such periodicals as Reflections, Pulpit Digest, The Navy Chaplain, The Harbor Watch (New York City area), and The Bluejacket (Memphis, TN). He has variously served as editor and staff writer for several chapel and church newsletters. In addition, he's written and directed three locally produced plays. Several poems have been published over the years.
The author holds a BA degree from Baylor University majoring in English and religion with a minor in history followed by a Masters of Theology from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Supplemental coursework includes Marriage Counseling, Rape Crisis Counseling Certification, and Psychology of Personality and Adjustment. He is a graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature and has received an honorable mention in the Writer's Digest 73rd annual competition. Let us not neglect to mention avocations like lecturer, teacher, and biblical consultant.
Bernie served as a pastor for two years prior to joining the U.S. Navy. Military experience as a Navy chaplain spanned a 28 year career until retirement in 1995 in the grade of Captain. In the process he served Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard billets. Along the way he has taught junior high, high school, and adjunct college courses in religion, history, psychology, and business ethics. He was a pastor for many years. Retirement years have left time for writing, drawing cowboy pictures, painting, and goofing off .
