Steven Edscorn joined the MTS faculty in January of 2003. He serves as the chief administrator of the library and teaches in the areas of writing, research, and rhetoric. He is currently working toward a Ph.D. in Communications-Rhetoric at the University of Memphis. His studies there focus on the rhetoric of Isocrates, 436-338 BCE, who was among the first philosophers to distribute his discourses exclusively in writing, and whose writings potentially influenced early church figures, such as Augustine and John Chrysostom, in addition to New Testament writers. Steven is a Fellow of the elite Frye Leadership Institute, 2006, and has published numerous book reviews in library professional journals. Steven resides in Southaven, Mississippi and is a member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
