My last name -- Enete -- is unusual and sometimes difficult to pronounce. Three out of the five letters are vowels. The name is pronounced -- eee NET. My interests have led me through a variety of fields.

programming

In programming, my specialty is distributed processing (since 1981).

In Dallas Theological Seminary I was responsible for building the campus Computer Center, installing an IBM mainframe, doing the system programming, managing the staff, and purchasing all the PCs.

In TRW I was responsible for the middleware that connected PC and Mainframe portions of various applications. For ParcPlace - Digitalk I worked on a distributed Smalltalk system.

For AOL I was a Chief Architect and built AolRadio (a real-time client/server radio broadcast system), scaled the server infrastructure for the American Greetings backend, and invented, patented, and lead a team to build Video Messenger -- a massively scaled video superset of Instant Messaging that was used by 500,000 people each day on the AOL service. Then AOL loaned me to Caltech to productionalize their computer vision systems.

Since 2006 all my programming activity has been dedicated to the Wave Study Bible ministries: Spectrum Bible, and Flicker Bible Study.

writing

I really enjoy writing. It provides a pure opportunity to explain a concept. There is no greater challenge than to fan the flame of a person's desire to learn, without extinguishing it. Here are the things I have written.

Flicker Bible Study

I wrote Flicker Bible Study with Denise to help people strengthen their desire to get to know God at the same time they learned easy steps for Bible study.

All of the proceeds from the sale of this book are reinvested in teaching those who want to learn to study the Bible.

JAVA Jump Start

When the Java programming language came onto the scene, I had just the right background of distributed programming and Smalltalk experience to understand and explain this new technology. So Prentice Hall commissioned me to write JAVA Jump Start and UCI Extension asked me to use it to teach Java programming to their students.

I've also written packages of small free examples (Nuggets) to explain several computer technologies.

My writing activity is currently dedicated to the Wave Study Bible ministries: Spectrum Bible, and Flicker Bible Study.

bible

Dallas Theological Seminary

The focus of my Bachelors and Masters education was Bible Exegesis in the original languages (Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic). I graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1980 with a Th.M. in Hebrew Exegesis.

I taught several Bible, Theology, Guitar, and computer courses at Dallas Bible College.

Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts

I am on the Expert Advisory Board for Dan Wallace's Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM).

NASB 2020

Lockman, the publisher of the New American Standard Bible (NASB), contacted me and asked if I would participate in the creation of the 2020 revision of the NASB. I agreed and updated the translation for the books of Romans, Galatians, and Ephesians. The NASB 2020 came to market in the Fall of 2020 and the Spectrum Bible™ includes it as well as the NASB 1995 in the free download.

Spectrum Bible

All three of my skillsets--Bible, programming, and teaching--come together in the writing of the free Spectrum Bible™ app. I really love making the Bible simple and fun to read. My original purpose in writing the app was to help English Bible readers scale the wall and access the Bible's original languages. After building support for that I enhanced the app to facilitate Flicker Bible Study (simple inductive Bible study) with a special tool to capture your thoughts in the lower panel as you study the Bible in the upper panel.

teaching

I have taught courses on the college level in the following subjects: Bible, Theology, Computer Concepts, Classical Guitar (Dallas Bible College), and Java programming (UCI Extension).

Denise and I have taught Flicker Bible Study to over 2,000 people face-to-face in local churches in the Southern California area.

My Doctoral work was in the field of Education. In 2002 I graduated from Newport University with a Doctor of Education degree specializing in Internet-based training systems. As part of the program, I constructed a CGI based WebSchool that delivered programmed instruction to learners over the Internet.

My teaching activity is currently dedicated to the Wave Study Bible ministries: Spectrum Bible, and Flicker Bible Study.

guitar

I began playing the guitar when I was in 8th grade. I went through electric and folk styles before I settled on the classical guitar style.

When I was in college, I taught classical guitar and arranging as member of the music faculty of the college. I also had 40 students in town. The highlight of my guitar study was when I was a performer in a master class conducted by one of Spain's Royal Family of Classical Guitar -- Pepe Romero. Over the course of a week, the other 5 performers and I played to an audience of 60 people and received valuable pointers from the master.

While I study the classical repertoire, my passion is to arrange hymns and other Christian music for the classical guitar. I have added about 50 hymns to the meager body of Christian literature for the classical guitar.
