A long-time Christian who has led and participated in many Bible studies, Chris Bolinger considers himself a regular guy who writes for other regular guys. After 27 years in high tech--with jobs ranging from software engineer to product manager to sales and marketing executive--he started Revitalize Ministries to strengthen small churches by offering innovative ideas to their leaders. While this is his first book, he has written dozens of articles for newspapers and high-tech publications. He has interviewed Christian authors and church leaders for his radio show and was an executive producer of the film The Song. He has a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Akron and an MBA from George Mason University. Chris makes his home in the Cleveland area.
