About the Author

altAuthor’s Credentials: Marilyn earned an MA in Christian Apologetics from Simon Greenleaf University, a Christian graduate school (acquired by Trinity International University). She also holds a BA in English from CSU Fullerton and a BA in Biblical Studies from Calvary Chapel Bible College. She has been a leader in women’s ministries at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, a speaker with Stonecroft Ministries International, and has written apologetics curriculum.

Author’s Personal Testimony:  During a time of identity crisis, Marilyn joined a Bible study and began searching for God and for meaning in life. She had honest questions, such as “Is Christianity the one true world religion?” and “Is the Bible really the Word of God?” As she examined evidence for the faith and read the Bible, the Holy Spirit opened her eyes and she came face to face with the Lord she was studying about. In 1982, she gave her heart and life to the Lord Jesus Christ. It is now her fervent desire for others to come to know Jesus personally and to receive forgiveness and the free gift of eternal life (John 3:16 and 14:6).
