R. Larry Scott
The son of missionary parents, Larry Scott spent his formative years in Peru, living first in the city of Cusco before moving to Lima in 1951.
Following graduation from Central Bible College, Springfield, Mo., with an AB degree in Bible, he spent a year in missionary service, teaching at the Assemblies of God Bible School in Santiago, Chile. Two years as Associate Pastor of Christ Church, Westminster, CA followed and then he moved to Camp Hill, Pa and served as founding Pastor of Trinity Temple.
In 1978, he returned to academia to pursue an M Div. degree in Counseling from Ashland Seminary, Ashland, OH. Following graduation in 1982, and divorce in 1984, he moved to Poulsbo, WA and lived a solitary life aboard Angelica, a 40-ft sailboat, in effect homeless, but garnering no sympathy. After fourteen years driving long-haul truck coast to coast, he retired in 2004 and remarried his sweetheart on what would have been their forty-fifth wedding anniversary. Together again, they sold Angelica, purchased a home, and moved to southern New Hampshire.
Now in a rebuilding mode, he has turned to writing, with The Making of a Model his crowning work.
This is not the story of failure due to drugs, alcohol, marital infidelity or physical abuse. But this is the story of a man who made unbelievable mistakes of judgment and failed. But he stayed the course, rose once again from the ashes, and recovered as living proof God can take even a broken man and make something special out of him – a living model of Jesus Christ.
