One day while teaching at Indiana State University, Dr. Larry Guthrie was informed that his book publishing record was insufficient; he would be terminated. However, God had given Dr. Guthrie a keen understanding of the world of nature and a remarkable ability to capture the attention of audiences as he explained life principles from the world of nature. As a former research assistant and writer for IBLP, he worked on such publications as Character Sketches III and IV and Eagle Story. He also wrote science and medical curriculum materials; his work over the years has involved instructing young people, especially in showing them God's character as revealed in nature. Now his writings are worldwide, being read and enjoyed by millions of people. He and his wife, Lois, have been married for over 40 years; they have two married children and seven grandchildren.
