A personal note from Laurence M. Vance

“I cannot live without books,” said Thomas Jefferson. ” This is my sentiment exactly. I am a connoisseur of books. My personal research and reference library, which I have carefully assembled over the past forty years, contains thousands of books. But I don’t fill my library with books just to look at them or show them off. They are the tools I use for personal study; lecture, sermon, and lesson preparation; and writing books and articles.

I am available on a limited basis to lecture, to speak at churches on Sundays, to do Sunday thru Wednesday King James Bible conferences, and to speak at miscellaneous events. Most of my previous lecture and speaking engagements are listed here. Please contact me well in advance at if you are interested in having me speak.
