It is reported that the late L.S. Chafer first had the idea of making a list like this.

There have been others who have added to the original list such as R.B. Thieme

Jnr and the late Roger Price.  I am indebted to them for all their efforts under the

inspiration of the Holy Spirit and commit this, my own revision and expansion, to

the Lord and pray that all who read and use it will be blessed and enriched by it.
