Frankie V. (Frank Viola) trains people in the craft of writing through his annual SCRIBE training.

He has written some books in the past on the love, grace, and mercy of Jesus Christ and against the harsh, cruel, toxic, unforgiving, mean-spirited and unloving attitude that Jesus' enemies had toward Him and His people: the scribes and the Pharisees.

“In fact, I’ve met countless believers who have said, “The church is an organism, not an organization.” Yet as they formed those very words, they continued to be devout members of churches that were organized along the lines of General Motors and Microsoft.”
