Keith Willhite is an ordinary guy who "stands up in front of people and tells them where to go." At least that's the way his daughter described him . . . when she was three. Keith is the Chairman and Professor of Pastoral Ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary. But anyone who knows him well will tell you that his primary occupation is cheering for Kentucky basketball. Keith; his wife, Denise; and their two young children enjoy zoos, fishing, soccer, and almost anything outdoors.

Scott M. Gibson (DPhil, Oxford) is the Haddon W. Robinson Professor of Preaching and Ministry, director of the Center for Preaching at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and one of the founders of the Evangelical Homiletics Society. He is the author or coauthor of several books on preaching and lives in Massachusetts.
