My official bio: Chris Tiegreen is an award-winning author of more than 60 books and discussion guides that have been translated into more than 40 languages and read by more than 5 million people worldwide. He is also a collaborative/supporting writer for other communicators (i.e., ghostwriter) on more than 40 book projects, and writer of hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles covering city and county government, sports, and education. His experiences in media, ministry, and higher education bring a unique perspective to his writing, which often focuses on cultural commentary and devotional themes. He and his family currently live in Atlanta.

Unofficially . . . That bio hits the professional high points, as bios are supposed to do, but it doesn't really tell you much about me. I love studying languages, I dabble in art and music (piano and guitar, mostly in private), I consider myself to be a rabid (but reasonable) college football fan, and I'll travel almost anywhere given the opportunity. I especially love beaches and off-the-beaten-track global adventures. I've had several careers (journalist, pastor, teacher, photographer, author) and have devoted myself to several fields of study (communications, theology, political science, and now history, in which I've recently completed a Ph.D.). I was born in Atlanta, where I live now, but have also lived and/or worked in Kentucky, Mississippi, Michigan, Utah, Idaho, Florida, and Thailand. I continue to write in several genres and am currently teaching history at Georgia State University.
