    Dear Mark:
    I have not problem with people quoting from my papers, but I do not approve
    of using entire articles that I have written for publication in other people's books.
    When I approve an entire article (or a good portion of) one of my articles, it is
    tantamount to putting my personal approval on your entire work or volume, and
    this I cannot do. First, because I probably would not approve of your entire work.
     
    A little advice:  I do not believe that anyone would be interested in reading a book
    with the title: "Problems with Christianity." It sounds as boring as any title could be.
    It's like a book entitled: "Everything Wrong with America." People don't want to
    read books like that.  Maybe if you titled it: "The Solution to the Major Problems
    of Christianity."  But even that sounds boring. No one would buy it. Which brings
    up another major point, and that is we do not SELL the Gospel of Jesus Christ or
    any of our material. I have had dozens of such offers in the past and have turned
    them all down. Hope you understand.
    God be with you,
    Ray
