Mark Roland earned a Master’s Degree in Education at Stanford University. He taught all grades from second through college, from Maryland to Los Angeles to Hiroshima, Japan. He studied in Florence for six months, in Mexico for seven weeks. He is qualified in Italian, Spanish and French. He taught French in Los Angeles, Spanish and English in San Francisco.
As a student of the Bible, he has read from Genesis to Revelation three times. After hearing hundreds of sermons and attending crusades, he took his knowledge of the Bible and connected it with his poetry. It took two and a half years to complete New Testament in Poetry. Each line had to be examined to make sure that the meaning was true to the original intent.
He lives in the Salinas Valley of California.
