About the Author
With an advanced, formal and diverse, Liberal Arts education, majoring in Philosophy, Ross acquired a broad-based perspective of Scripture, history, logic, emotion, people and values. Following his post-ordination conversion to biblical Christianity, he has labored for Gospel renewal through radio, music, counseling, and writing. As a reformed student of Liberalism, Eastern religions, New Religious Movements and the Church Growth movement. Ross has an unusual perspective on both the need for and the fear of church renewal, revival, restoration, reformation - whatever you prefer to call it. That labor has included more than twenty years of ministry leadership and experience with the unique circumstances involved in contemporary Christian ministry in many different churches and situations. Over many years of reading and personal reflection, sometimes brought about through the crucible of conflict, Ross found himself to be squarely seated in the historic Reformed Christian tradition, in the midst of a people who are not, a people who have lost all sense of historical mooring. As a published author of many books and many articles, Ross further engaged his language and communication skills, and trained himself in graphic and web design, to start a business. During these professional years, Ross continued to preach and write freely, apart from the demands of political correctness in order to produce a less fettered body of literature that addresses and corrects various problems that dog contemporary churches. Too many churches have become stuck in the bog of politically correctness while lusting in their corporate hearts for worldly growth and power. Ross chips away at these barnacles on the hull of Mother Kirk to free the gospel to speak again to her estranged children. He and his wife, Stephanie, live in Marietta, Ohio, and have three sons in college.
