ROBERT NOLAND began his writing career as a songwriter in 1983, then spent the next 10 years as a touring musician, songwriter, and producer, penning lyrics for artists such as Glen Campbell, Babbie Mason, and Gabriel. He wrote his first series of Bible studies in 1988 and in 1991 wrote his first Christian devotional book. Noland has since authored over 50 titles spanning across children, youth, and adult audiences. He blogs weekly through The Sword & Shield. Since 2011, after relocating to Franklin, TN, Noland has been a freelance author for faith-based organizations, ministries, and Christian publishers. Regardless of the target audience or mode of delivery via paper or digital, Robert Noland is at home, writing what he calls, practical application of Biblical truth.
