An award-winning creative writer, Larry Alan Thompson has made a career out of distilling a message down to its simplest form—and making it memorable. Combine this experience with seminary training, a decades-long quest for knowing God, and ministry at one of the largest churches in the world, and you get a breakthrough book like Know Be Do. President and CEO of Eternity Communications, Thompson uses his wit and wisdom to create Christianity’s newest catchphrase: Know Be Do. His innovative perspective offers a whole new lens for reading the Bible and experiencing God.
Larry served for nine years as Minister of Communications for the 29,000-member Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, pastored by the internationally renown preacher and Christian leader Dr. Adrian Rogers. He earned a Master of Divinity from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in Memphis and a degree in advertising and journalism from the University of Kentucky. Larry was involved in the creative side of the advertising agency business before seminary and his call into full-time ministry.
Larry has been married to his wife Tina, also an author and Bible teacher, for 34 years. They have two married daughters. Larry and Tina live in Lexington, Kentucky, in a 173-year-old historic home.
