Marshall is editor of Leadership Journal and vice president of Christianity Today.

He is the author of Ministering to Problem People in Your Church, Helping Those Who Don't Want to Be Helped, and is co-author with Harold Myra of The Leadership Secrets of Billy Graham.

Raised in Colorado, he now lives in "topographically challenged" Chicagoland but still roots for his beloved Denver Broncos. He loves sports, travel, and history. He and his wife, Susan, have five much-loved children (Stacey, Kelsey, Mandy, Toby, Bayly), two sons-in-law (Will and Anthony) of whom they are very proud, and three of the best grandchildren ever (Emilia, Grey, and Susie)!
