About the author

Ryan is a married father of three who grew up in Southern California, but now lives just outside Cincinnati. Ryan’s family joined the ATI home-education program during his junior year of high school and the following school year, he was invited to join IBLP staff in Oak Brook, Illinois. Ryan observed the inner workings of the ministry during his time on IBLP staff, including ministry trips to Moscow, Russia and while working with troubled youth at the Indianapolis Training Center. Ryan’s formal association with IBLP ended in 1995. In the years since, he has struggled to make sense of the IBLP experience. His journey from legalism to grace is still very much a work in process.
