This book is actually not about bingo; it is an account of the life death and resurrection of Theo son of Mann.
Theo’s mother Mary Jane Sullivan is visited and overpowered by the Holy Spirit. Joe Mann contacted by an Angel in a dream later marries Mary Jane thus Theo’s sir name “of Mann.” Theo the son of Mann grows up in rural Mississippi and is baptized by his cousin Jonnie Waters who comes from the union of Zach and Betty (Elizabeth) Waters by the announcement of an Angel. As Theo emerges from his baptism, the Holy Spirit descends on him and the voice of God proclaims, “This is my beloved son.”
Tishomingo Bingo puts in the modern-day language and location the events that have had global consequences since the original version was recorded in the Gospels 2000 years ago.
Jeff Sakas is an experienced attorney having practiced law in Georgia for 47 years. He was born in Portsmouth, Virginia in the Portsmouth Naval Hospital because his father was serving in the Navy. Sakas did not grow up in any particular place as a result of his father’s military service. The family lived up and down the East Coast from Florida to Rhode Island, except for a two-year stint in Kentucky, until he was 13 years old. While living in Kentucky, Jeff felt the call of Christ on his life and became a Christian, and he has always felt the presence of Jesus since his conversion. After his father retired from the Navy the family moved to Tennessee and Jeff graduated from West End High School in Nashville. Jeff played college baseball and was active in student government at Middle Tennessee State University. After college Sakas studied law at Tulane University and after his freshman year had an internship in Washington DC in the office of Senator Edmund Muskie.
Sakas started practicing law in Atlanta, Georgia in 1973. For the last 45 years Jeff has also been a Sunday school teacher, teaching the Bible to adults as well as children. He brings a long experience of dealing with individuals and business problems for his clients from a Christian perspective. Because of this experience Jeff became aware of a spiritual warfare that goes on constantly in the lives of believers that impacts the lives of all who have a spiritual awareness. He believes, “Greater is HE (Christ) that is in me, than he who is in the world”. Sakas writes from this perspective in explaining his most intimate relationships, court cases that he has handled and his perspective concerning the world in which we live.
