Brian A. Curtis was born in Kent, England. He began his working career in the insurance industry before migrating to Australia in 1974. Six years later, he began studying at Ridley Theological College, Melbourne, and in 1983 was ordained by the Anglican Church of Australia. Since then, he has ministered full time, part time, as a locum and on a casual basis in many churches in Tasmania. In 1990, he took a ten-year break from the ordained ministry and worked with welfare recipients and the long-term unemployed. Brian’s passion is that people should have a good understanding of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, particularly in a world where they are so often misunderstood and misrepresented.
