Marshall Shelley

Marshall is editor of Leadership Journal.

He is the author of Well-Intentioned Dragons, Ministering to Problem People in Your Church, is general editor of The Quest Study Bible, is co-author with Harold Myra of The Leadership Secrets of Billy Graham, and is co-author with his father, church historian Bruce Shelley, of The Consumer Church: Can Evangelicals Win the World Without Losing Their Soul?

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