No, I wasn't always bald, nor a pastor. Yes, I had a past life and career. So did Rod Rosenbladt. Part of it was spent teaching together at the Simon Greenleaf School of Law in Anaheim (now Trinity Law School in Santa Ana). This is from the Simon Greenleaf 1989-90 catalogue.
Rod was my first theology teacher, and I can't tell you what an honor it was when John Warwick Montgomery asked me to join the faculty and teach with Rod.
You gotta start somewhere! Little did I know where I'd end up!
And it is still an honor to work with Rod!
