Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960's, Stephen W. Lange, son of a Stanford University professor, chose to race motorcycles after high school graduation instead of attend college. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1975 as a radio operator and was honorably discharged in 1979. After military service, he enrolled in University of Texas at Arlington, receiving a B.S.E.E. degree in 1987.
After working six years as an antenna engineer for a defense contractor, he became a software engineer working on telecommunications systems. For the last decade he’s been a member of the Gideons International, a non-profit Christian Buisnessmen's group that funds and distributes Bibles all over the world. He and his wife have five adult children, and the couple currently resides in Merida, Yucatan. The Testimony of Christ is his second book.
