Judge William Howerton Discussion and Book Signing at WKCTC September 27

PADUCAH, KY (September 13, 2016) Judge William Howerton, a native of Paducah and retired judge of the Kentucky Court of Appeals, will visit West Kentucky Community and Technical College September 27 for a discussion and book signing of his new book, Understanding Gods Contracts with Mankind.

During the free one-hour presentation, which will be held in the colleges Matheson Library beginning at 2 p.m., Judge Howerton will open a discussion to ones path to understanding Christianity.

Even the well-versed Christians will glean some extra-solid food to grow in their understanding, said Judge Howerton. Its not enough to be a bit familiar or have some knowledge of what its all about. To maintain our faith and belief when challenged, and certainly to be able to explain Christianity to others, we need answers and understanding.

Kirkus Reviews, which previews books prior to their publication and reviews over 7,000 titles per year, said Judge Howerton has a professional background as a lawyer and a judge, and he scrupulously marshals evidence to substantiate his views in that spirit. At its very best, the book evokes the natural law tradition within Christian thought, which seeks to support the dictates of revelation with the findings of reason.

Judge Howerton, a Korean War veteran and retired lieutenant colonel from the United States Air Force Reserve, graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Bachelors of Science in commerce and a Juris Doctorate. He served as a board regent at Murray State University for four years and served on the Paducah Junior College (PJC) Board of Trustees for 26 years. PJC, Inc. is the foundation for West Kentucky Community and Technical College.
