A Carpenter's View of the Bible Second Edition
March Winds Publishers

Three new chapters and Devotional Questions after each chapter

Using practical insights from his years as a carpenter and scholarly knowledge in theology, ancient religion, Middle Eastern architecture, and archaeology, Dr. March brings forth an important dimension to the Scriptures on topics such as: 

  • the creation of the natural and architectural landscapes
  • the epitome of jobsite miscommunication: the Tower of Babel
  • the Arks of Noah and Moses
  • God in the tent: the Tabernacle
  • Sodom and Lachish: cities on the brink
  • New! Nehemiah: building against ridicule
  • a carpenter's view of Jesus of Nazareth
  • New! Harod's temple, two chapters:
    • a description of transcendent architecture
    • when a house a of God is no longer God's
  • the City of Heaven

In these pages, we see a fresh perspective cast on some of our most beloved Biblical narratives and a deeper insight into the early Christian house church. 

For twenty years, Charlie March has worked as a finish carpenter and taught adult Sunday school classes at the church where he and his wife Cathy raised their family in Carmel Valley, California.

Your Voice Echoes Through
Gerasa of Jordan and the End of the Classical City

March Winds Publishers, Inc.

Ancient Gerasa, known today as Jerash in Jordan, is one of the great archaeological parks and tourist destinations in the world. However, until now its importance as a historical bridge spanning the Classical and ealry Christian periods has not been fully discussed. "Your Voice Echoes Through" is the first book published on Gerasa that explores how the rise of Christianity and its pursuit of the City of God shaped this fascinating architectural landscape and helped bring an end to its Classical Nature.

"Your Voice Echoes Through" studies this momentous cultural transition from an architectural, archaeological and religious perspective in the waning years of the Roman Empire. The physical and philosophical aspects of Paganism, Judaism, and Christianity are discussed in relation to their use of sacred space, and their texts in relation with their artifacts. Thus this is a multi-disciplinary study of an ancient town, the sacred spaces of three religions and the end of an epoch.
