About The Poet

Philip Brown Rosenbaum became a Christian in his mid-twenties

and wrote his first poem at the age of thirty-four.

He was born and raised in Washington, D.C., where he attended St. Albans School and sang in the Choir of Men and Boys at the Washington National Cathedral. He graduated from Harvard with minimal honors and a B. A. in English, then worked with delinquent boys, mostly in wilderness programs, before being called to an evangelical ministry in California.

His published prose works are How to Enjoy the Boring Parts of the Bible and The Promise (on the importance of honoring parents). His only published book of Christian poetry is Holy Week Sonnets, a collection of Easter poetry, with a foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada.

Recently retired from his work as a fine arts consultant, he lives in rural Virginia with his wife, Jeanne. They have five grown children and five grandchildren.
