Phil Stover's career has spanned thirty-eight years of service in ministry and education. He has held key administrative and academic posts in both K-12 and higher education, most recently serving as Deputy Superintendent in the San Diego Unified School District and Interim Superintendent in the Sweetwater Union High School District. His extensive and diverse academic training is evenly divided between education, history, theology, and psychology. Additionally, he served as an ordained Baptist and licensed Mennonite minister, as well as an associate professor specializing in the integration of psychology and theology. In 2002, Philip Stover was elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He was appointed to the Sarasota County Historical Commission and is a member of the American Historical Association and the Conference on Latin American History along with a number of other historical groups. He is also a member of the National Coalition of Independent Scholars. Phil has a ranch in Mata Ortiz, Chihuahua where he grows pecans and various fruits. He is a gifted speaker and enjoys presenting to various clubs and fraternal groups in the Casas Grandes/Galeana region about the area's history, especially that of its colorful revolutionary period. Phil's most recent book Reflections on Time is a delightful collection of stories about time and its influence on our lives. Phil draws on his years as a collector of watches and clocks, a historian, and a professor to weave wonderful stories into the tapestry of the book. If you like a good inspirational, yet non-sectarian read, this book is for you. Phil's books are as much about the joy of writing as anything else. In addition to Reflections on Time, Phil has published an award-winning (Writers Digest) scholarly work, Religion and Revolution in Mexico's North about the impact of religion and revolution on each other in Mexico's turbulent past as well as a guide to the beloved pottery of the village of Mata Ortiz, Chihuahua, Mata Ortiz Pottery Buyer's Guide. In the fall of 2016 Phil will publish The American Public School District, an analysis and memoir of his time spent working in and with America's public school districts. Continuing with his love of the study of religion and conflict, Phil will publish, in the winter of 2016 For Thy Kingdom, a doctrinal case study of the Mountain Meadows Massacre in Utah in 1857. All of his books are available on Amazon as either an eBook or a traditional paperback.
