C.J. Mahaney's Bio:
C.J. Mahaney is a compelling preacher whose dynamic style has translated well into the publishing arena.

In 1977, Mahaney became one of the founding pastors of Covenant Life Church, located in a Maryland suburb of Washington DC. He served as pastor to the thriving body of 2,500 for twenty-seven years before passing the torch on to popular speaker and author Joshua Harris. Armed with a passion for ministry, Mahaney went on to lead Sovereign Grace Ministries in its mission to establish and support local churches. The church planting organization proudly counts sixty churches in six countries under its wings.

A highly sought-after conference speaker, Mahaney shares his message with thousands of people each year. But itís his publishing repertoire that is continually increasing his fan base by leaps and bounds. He is the popular author of The Cross-Centered Life, Christ Our Mediator, Humility: True Greatness, Living the Cross-Centered Life, and Sex, Romance, and The Glory of God: What Every Christian Husband Needs to Know.

C.J. Mahaney and his wife, Carolyn, have three married daughters and one son. They make their home in Gaithersburg, Maryland, where he enjoys reading, golf, and basketball in his spare time.
