Dr. Marinella is a perfect candidate to author this book. Having completed his Bachelor of Science at Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio, he proceeded to Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio. He trained in internal medicine at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and is currently practicing medical oncology in Dayton, Ohio. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Physicians (F.A.C.P.). Between his internal medicine training and beginning his study of oncology, Dr. Marinella spent more than ten years as a “hospitalist” (hospital-based general internist). He went on to master human physiology while caring for thousands of patients and teaching medical students and internal-medicine residents on a daily basis. During this time, he was an active member of his local church.
Dr. Marinella has authored three books, five book chapters, and more than 100 published manuscripts in medical literature.

"As a Christian physician, I have not only marveled at the spiritual ramifications of Christ’s death, but also the physical and physiological aspects. To present this, I have compiled a succinct overview of Jesus’ death from a physical and medical perspective that I hope both lay and medical people can appreciate and understand."
— Mark A. Marinella, M.D., F.A.C.P.
