Ronald H. Love has a cosmopolitan work experience having been employed in the church, education, public service, and business. This has exposed him to multiple facets of the human condition, fostering sensitivity and awareness. In his quest for knowledge he has acquired six degrees which include: Bachelor of Arts, Slippery Rock State College; Master of Arts, Indiana University of Pennsylvania; Master of Library and Information Science, University of Pittsburgh; Master of Education, Duquesne University; Master of Divinity, Wesley Theological Seminary and Doctor of Ministry, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Dr. Love was called to be a theologian from a career as a Virginia State Trooper. This transition has been the litmus test for all his theological writings, for it made him mindful that biblical interpretation and theological positions must parallel what people experience in daily living. Therefore, his guide is that his theology must be able to dwell on the streets of Page County, where he was assigned as a state trooper, for this is where people live; this is reality. If a theological treatise that he composes cannot live on the streets of Page County then the theology is misguided, for the streets are real. Dr. Love has written for CSS Publishing in Charting the Course, Emphasis, and The Immediate Word.
