SIDELIGHTS: Denny G. Kenaston told CA: "I am a sincere dedicated Christian with a great burden for revival among God's people and for the restoration of godly homes in America. I spent much time in prayer and fasting before and during the writing of The Pursuit of Godly Seed. I wrote literally for fifty hours per week for sixteen weeks to complete the first draft. This is my first attempt at writing, and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of the writing process."
