Now serving full time with GCI, Dr. Gary Deddo worked as senior editor for academic books at InterVarsity Press for thirteen years. He spent most of his time on academic proposals and manuscripts having to do with theology, philosophy and ethics. An ordained minister, he also has a vital interest in subjects such as ministry, integration of faith, learning and vocation, evangelism, pastoral counseling, and apologetics - topics of concern for a more general readership. Gary's passion is to see the best of Christian academic studies, especially theological studies, made accessible to nonexperts.

Previous to his time at IVP, for twenty years Gary served as a campus staff member with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF), working with undergraduates at the Claremont Colleges in Southern California and with graduate students at Princteton University and Princeton Seminary in Princeton, NJ.
