My first name is Allen and my last name is pronounced “BOUY’-no” (like those channel markers in the Bay) or “BOY’-no” bur definitely not “BUJ’-no” (I’m Polish. What can I say?)

I graduated from Eastern Baptist College (Eastern University) with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I received my MDiv. degree from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary (Palmer Seminary.)

A Pastor’s Account of God’s Abundant Mercy, Love and Grace” which is available as a paperback. e-book and Audible book from Check the link for a free preview.
