Biographical and Professional Information

Eddie Ellis is a life-long dog lover, an ordained minister, and a professor of New Testament. After earning a BA in English from Stetson University (1986) and an MDiv from Asbury Theological Seminary (1991), he served as a United Methodist pastor in Florida for seven and a half years. In 1998, he felt called to a ministry of full-time teaching and returned to school for the necessary training, earning a ThM from Candler School of Theology (1999) and a PhD in religious studies from Baylor University (2005). In 2006, he accepted a teaching position at Olivet Nazarene University, where he has now served as a professor of New Testament for ten years. He and his wife, Terri, live in Bradley, Illinois, with their two sons. Having grown up in rural Florida, where both agriculture and dogs played major roles in his life, Eddie is well acquainted with the world in which "Good Boy, Achilles!" is set.

"Good Boy, Achilles!" is a chapter book intended for upper-elementary-aged readers, but it seems to appeal to dog lovers of all ages. "Kirkus Reviews" described the book as ". . . sure to be inspirational for Christians, moving for dog lovers, and perfect for readers who are both."
