Shults was born in a rural area of Northwest Detroit just after the onset of the Great Depression. After college he served for five years in the navy as an aviator followed by more than six years as a weekend warrior reservist. In the late 1950s he returned to school to earn an advanced degree in physics. Mr. Shults then joined IBM and began a career in computers and data processing. He taught information technology at the University of California Santa Barbara extension school, and later was president of his own computer company where he created many computer software innovations. In 1973 he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit dramatically changing his life interests. In 1986, under the guidance of the Spirit of God, he gave up his life’s vocation and began an intense study of church history, theology, and US History. This work is one of more than ten manuscripts he has produced with God’s leadership. Father of eight children, Mr. Shults and his wife Carol, now live in Florida with two children still in the home.
