Rev. Donald C. Stamps wrote all of the articles and all of the study notes in the original Full Life Study Bible. He earned his B.A. and M.A. from Southern Nazarene University (Bethany, Oklahoma), and his M.Div. from Nazarene Theological Seminary (Kansas City, Missouri). Don and his wife, Linda, pastored a church in Kansas for 2 years before they went to Brazil as missionaries. During his years as an Assemblies of God missionary in Brazil, Don wrote the notes and articles in the FLSB to provide a resource for pastors that would give them direction in their thinking and preaching. He served as a missionary for 13 years until his death in 1991. Don is survived by his wife of 25 years, Linda, and three children all of whom are serving the Lord.
