His first book, Man on the Run: Helping Hyper-Hobbied Men Recognize The Best Things, was published with Howard Books (Simon & Schuster’s Christian imprint) in March of 2012. He’s represented by Rachelle Gardner of Books & Such Literary Agency. Zeke is a regular contributor to several national outdoor magazines, including Field & Stream, Deer & Deer Hunting, Petersen’s Bowhunting, and Bow & Arrow Hunting.

He earned his Master of Divinity from Talbot School of Theology, and his Doctor of Ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. The Piphers live on an acreage in central Nebraska, a mile from the Platte River—the perfect place to hike, hunt, fish, camp, swim, chop wood, and train their German wirehair, Ezra. He’s a huge Husker fan and maintains that the 1971 football team is the best college team of all time.
