E. larry Beaumont
E. Larry Beaumont is an emerging author of Christian books. He has published three books and one poem, while spending 45 years as a professional engineer. He has patented three inventions in the renewable energy field.
Faith in Motion (1998) is a devotional book written for frequent business travelers using travel stories in the Bible. It is now out of print, awaiting a second edition, but is available here from Larry’s basement stash.
How to Be a Frequent Flyer (2002) is for a broader audience. It is a hilarious satire that teaches the Golden Rule backwards, based on decades of air travel over 3 million miles. It had to be completely rewritten after Larry’s harrowing presence inside Union Station, New York at 8:40 a.m. on September 11, 2001, and it is dedicated to the heroes of air travel who carried that day.
Larry attended two seminaries, but was called away from vocational ministry twice to return to the engineering world. He never understood why until 1998, when he remembered a vision of Christian unity he had as a teenager fifty years earlier, triggered by immersion in the Bible while writing Faith in Motion.
It took 15 years of intense study and incessant rewriting for his new book, Streamside: Finding Peace through Perfect Unity, to be born, published by Tate Publishing in 2013.
Larry lives in Littleton, Colorado, with the prayer-warrior love of his life known as Saint Sue, for her loving acceptance of her husband’s quirks. They have two children and five grandchildren who bless them beyond measure.
