Chris Bolinger

Chris is an “average Joe” Christian who writes for guys like himself.

After 27 years in high tech – mostly as a product manager – he started Revitalize Ministries to strengthen small churches by offering innovative ideas to their leaders. The venture was a failure. He also was an executive producer of the film The Song. It was a box-office flop. So he decided to write a men’s devotional. Much to his surprise, and that of the marketing team at his publisher, that devotional, Daily Strength for Men, has sold nearly 250,000 copies since it hit shelves in late 2018. His second men's devotional, 52 Weeks of Strength for Men, made its debut in spring 2022.

A native of Akron, Chris splits his time between northeast Ohio and southwest Florida. Against the advice of medical professionals, he remains a steadfast fan of Cleveland pro sports teams.
