This book is about how God inspired his ancient people to record the story of time and eternity in the night sky. The second part of the book is a commentary of the book of Revelation that links this last book of the bible to the great saga in the stars. This book gives new and exciting insights into understanding the enigmatic book of Revelation.

Defining Truth is The Word​

Some of today’s religious philosophers astonishingly say that truth is an outdated concept.
The biblical revelation, on the other hand, is that truth is absolute, more than propositional, and resides in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. He taught that both he and the scriptures embodied truth, that he was the source and interpreter of biblical truth.

This site is my contribution to the mission of restoring truth to the church. It focuses both on Jesus and the bible, both the living and the written Word of God. I have called it ‘Truth is The Word’ as it contains material that is biblical and Jesus-centred.

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
