Academic disciplines periodically appraise their effectiveness, evaluating the progress of scholarship and judging which approaches are useful. This text investigates how international relations theorists can equip themselves to determine the state of scholarly work in their field.

Bob's experience of growing up in a broken home, competing in athletics, to filing the role of senior pastor for a dynamic rapidly growing church, to seasons of tragic loss and humiliation, have been used by God to bring him to the end of himself and to a life of dependence on Christ as Savior, Lord and Life.His journey of experiencing God as a restoring, accepting, caring and encouraging Father is continually transforming his street smart Dallas Theological Seminary trained mind. He is passionate about serving his family as a loving husband and father, and is a blessing to the body of Christ as a gifted leader, musician, motivational and inspirational conference speaker and writer.God's call on his life can be summed up in Act 20:24, "However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me - the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace."Bob is currently the Executive Director of Grace Ministries International, where he has the privilege of serving the staff while providing visionary leadership to the day-to-day operations of GMI.Bob and his bride Julie have been married for 25 years and have three children, Nicole, Branden and Bobby. They reside in Canton, Georgia.
