Dr. Curt Scarborough’s serious side is that he is a committed follower of Jesus, the founder & Chancellor of the Pillsbury College & Seminary (www.pillsburycs.org), and producer of the a full-sentence outline of every chapter and group of verses in the entire Bible.
His “fun” side is perhaps best seen in his humorous impersonations of Mark Twain … which he does in this time of radio with him!
