Have you ever heard a golfer say, "Golf is a commentary on life?" J.D. (Jerry) Cole has taken that idea to task in The Course. The Course is filled with golf metaphors, stories and illustrations on golf and life. Jesus spoke of the "Sower and the Seed, "The Mustard Seed" and the "Wheat and the Weeds" to farmers, and Jerry writes about the "Golfer and the Course," "The Grip" and "The Scramble" to golfers. The Course is a metaphor on life. Its ups and downs, sorrows and joys, and its defeats and triumphs are all part of God's course design. If life is a tapestry of stories, within these pages are the stories of one golfer as he walked the course of life with his friend, Savior and Lord." Experience the passion of a true lover of the game and insights into the Christian life as Jerry shares his experiences on the golf course and The Course of life. J.D. Cole has experience in many ministries over the last thirty-six years: Pastor-Teacher and Church Planter with the Next Generation Churches, Field Staff with Young Life and Youth Pastor. Presently, he is a Discipleship Trainer with Discipleship Training International and an International Advocate for Haiti with Missions Door. His life's mission has always been to simply tell people about Jesus. The Course is an outworking of that desire. Jerry loves the game of golf and holds a handicap index that moves over and under 10. He considers his greatest accomplishment as helping his wife, Susan raise their four children, Leta, Jonathan, Jessica and Stephanie. He and Susan live in Nevada enjoying their grandkids.
