Glen Robinson grew up in San Jose, California the product of an Adventist mother and a non-Adventist father. He never took Adventism or Christianity for granted, and his academy years were filled with searching for spiritual meaning. Glenís sophomore year in college he had a spiritual conversion and committed his life to Jesus Christ. From that point on, Glen became convicted that having a relationship with Christ was more important than church membership.
After Glen met and married Shelly Scheffer in 1975, they raised their family to challenge their spiritual and church beliefs with the intent of knowing without a doubt why they believe what they do.
Glen has worked for 23 years in various editing, public relations and writing capacities within the Seventh-day Adventist Church, including 10 years as a Pacific Pressģ book and magazine editor. During his time there, he was privileged to serve as co-editor of ParenTalk magazine with Randy Maxwell where despite vastly different perspectives of right and wrong in parenting, Glen and Randy shared a common commitment to the value of Christian foundations for a family.
Today Glen teaches at Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, Texas. He is married to Shelly and they have two grown children, Melissa and Matt.
