About the Author
The Reverend Robert David Leas is eminently qualified to writing a biography of the late Anton Theophilus Boisen. As a Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE) Supervisor, an Honorably Retired Presbyterian Pastor, and the History Manager of ACPE, Leas' own life experiences as pastor, chaplain, and Hoosier, correlates well with Boisen's commitment to the education of theological students and to the understanding of the mental illness/religion interface.
