Dwight Olney grew up in Kitchener, Ontario as the son of a piano tuner. At fifteen, he moved to Alberta when his father became the pastor of a church in the small northern community of Lac La Biche. After high school, Dwight trained to become a secondary school teacher, focusing on history and mathematics. After fifteen years in the classroom, he worked sixteen more as an in-school administrator for the Prairie South School Division in southern Saskatchewan.
The bulk of his formal education has focused on the study of theology (Briercrest College), history (University of Waterloo), education (Queen’s University), and administration (Jones International University).
Dwight finds great joy in teaching, preaching, carpentry, recreational hockey, and coaching basketball. He has three married children and has been blessed with three beautiful grandchildren. His theological skills have been honed through studying and teaching the Bible as an adult Sunday school teacher, preacher, author, and principal of a private Christian high school.
His fondest area of interest is practical theology, where he loves to challenge people to think in new ways by recognizing faulty human thought lines and replacing them with God-like thinking.
Dwight now lives with his patient and understanding wife, Jeanette, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
