Roland is the author of the book Bad Dads of the Bible, a fresh look at how some of the most revered men of the Bible made some major fathering mistakes that all dads can learn from. Roland’s newest book, Raising Sons of Promise: A Guide for Single Mothers of Boys focuses on helping single mothers guide their sons to be good and godly men, husbands and fathers.
Roland is married to Dr. Yvette Lopez-Warren and has two sons – Jamin, a graduate of Harvard University and journalist, and Justin, a graduate of the University of North Carolina and Indiana University of Pennsylvania – and three grandchildren (Gabriel, Selah and Sibley), who affectionately call him “Pop-Pop.”
