Meet The Author


Hi, I’m Michael Stoppa.

I was raised in an Italian Catholic family in what was once the small town of Williamsport, PA – where I lived until the age of 18. The matriarch of our family was my grandmother – Pauline Taddeo-Stoppa, aka “Saint Pauline” — and it was she who introduced me to my faith.

Why Did I Write This Book?

The Last Temptation of John is my attempt to share some of the Bible’s wisdom and hope with the world.

I believe that God intends for ALL the world to be saved, not just a chosen few and that it is our responsibility to share God’s Love with the world.

As Jesus said, “I am the Vine, you are the branches…This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my true disciples…. And this is my command to you, Love One Another.”

I hope you enjoy the book and that your faith is strengthened because of it.


A Little More About Me

For years now I’ve been sharing practical tips and making personal wisdom videos for my son Jax. My primary website is That Helpful Dad’s Wisdom and I encourage you to interact with me there too. The goal on my site is to share practical solutions to real life problems – this includes numerous life lessons that feature The Wisdom of Solomon.

I’ve also written other books on diverse topics (Minecraft, fantasy, self-help, and investing) but all have the same goal  — to share wisdom that you can easily understand and apply to your own life so that you can make the world a better place for yourself and others.
