This blog is dedicated to promoting an appreciation of the classical and Christian heritage of Western civilization. I believe that the Western tradition has compelling answers to the religious, cultural, social, economic, and political problems we face today. Here you will find links to news items and opinion pieces as well as my own thoughts on the state of our society.
Some information about me: I am a Professor at Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama, USA. I chair the Department of Humanities and teach undergraduate courses in several disciplines, including history, literature, and religion as well as interdisciplinary courses in the humanities. I also teach in Faulkner’s interdisciplinary M.A. and Ph.D. degree programs in Humanities. Along with my colleague Josh Fullman, I edit the Journal of Faith and the Academy, a semiannual scholarly journal that explores the relationship between the academic enterprise and the Christian faith. I have been happily married for fourteen years and have six sons whom I homeschool with my wife’s help.
