About

I am a philosopher, a scholar, a teacher, a husband, and father. Most importantly, I am a follower of Christ. I believe that Jesus is man’s greatest need and our highest good. As C.S. Lewis, one of my favorite writers,  puts it:

“God wills our good, and our good is to love Him (with that responsive love proper to creatures) and to love Him we must know Him: and if we know Him, we shall in fact fall on our faces.”[1]

So, God wills our good–and our good is to love Him–and to love Him is to know Him. My passion in life is to present to the world Jesus–in all his brilliance and beauty. This website, and the blog specifically, will provide a place for me to share with you my thinking as I pursue Christ as my greatest need and highest good. Join me on the journey!

I am married to Ethel and have four wonderful kids–Austin, Madeleine, Travis, and Joshua.

I have a Masters in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics from Talbot School of Theology and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Purdue University.

I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Christian Apologetics at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Check out my event page to see if I will be speaking or teaching at a place near you!
