Charles Walter Doughty ("Preacher D") was born in Martins Ferry, Ohio. He was called to the evangelistic Ministry of Jesus Christ in 1958. After graduating from Kentucky Christian College in 1964 A.D. he married his college sweetheart, Dorothy Elliott .
As a student minister, he served two congregations in Bleavens Valley and Olympia, Kentucky; and then two full time pulpit ministries at Lake Mount Church of Christ, Ohio (1964-1979) and the Church of Christ at Mountain View, Virginia (1980-present), growing attendance in the fifties to over 500 or more.
For the first forty years he traveled in Evangelist campaigns that saw a Kingdom harvest of hundreds of souls both in America and abroad. Along with the Eldership, he started the Christian Kingdom Broadcasting television ministry and local Bible College level training institute Christian Kingdom College; both of these ministries continue under the leadership of his successor, Evangelist Doug Hardman.
This book, "Revelation Rainbow" is the end of a forty-year quest by the author to fi nd answers to the questions generated by Biblically un-informed scholarship that shrouds rather than unveils the great truths of this Holy Spirit directed work of our Lord. Hundreds of students of Revelation have been left in a bewildered state because certain scholars approach the book with a human mindset, instead of a Spirit led mindset. Instead of looking at Revelation as The Divine apocalypse, they try to humanize and literalize the book as a study of human secular history leaving the student with a complicated scheme of things that do not make sense.
Having met these students, Mr. Doughty was greatly distressed to see them turn from God's Word (especially Revelation) altogether. Subjects like the Antichrist, Millennium, Mark of the Best, Rapture, Tribulation and "Left Behind" are just some of the end-time twists causing confusion.
