Associate Professor of Philosophy and Christian Apologetics

Since I grew up in New Jersey, I decided to attend Alaska Bible College (BA in Education, 1999). Alaska was really cold, so I thawed a little in teaching High School classes in Bible and mathematics from 1999-2004 in Denver, CO. There is no ocean in Colorado, so I began my graduate work at Biola University (MA in Christian Apologetics, 2003) in southern California with the intent to pursue graduate work in World Religions. Upon finding myself gripped more by the philosophical questions underlying the religious ones, I returned to Biola (this time Biola’s seminary, Talbot School of Theology) for their philosophy program (MA in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics, 2006). I had not completely solved any philosophical problems so I pursued answers at the University of Iowa (MA and PhD in Philosophy, 2011). I am currently working on answers to these questions as a professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I teach both in Scarborough College and the School of Theology. At Scarborough, I teach the humanities seminars, exploring the great books, as well as courses in philosophy and apologetics.

In the School of Theology, I teach epistemology, ethics, philosophy of religion, and apologetics. Here we offer a Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics, Master of Arts in Philosophy, and a PhD in Philosophy of Religion.

I love to challenge students to think hard and to do so with care. I’m convinced that pursuing truth and thinking well can be an act of worship as we love God with our minds.
