Welcome!

Let me say just a few things about this blog.  I like to think of myself as a modest blogger!  I don’t feel that everyone needs to know everything about what I think about anything.  Instead, I will be posting the occasional blog on important current events or persons or books or articles.  Some of my posts are previously published articles that I consider to be important and that are still relevant today.  These posts will sometimes be slightly revised and updated.  To access my most recent blog, look under “Pages” and click on “Posts/Blogs,” or look under “Archives” and click on the most recent month. If you are searching for a certain topic, see “Categories.”  In addition there are pages giving some personal and academic information about myself.  For a chapter-length intellectual and spiritual autobiography, see my post “A Philosopher’s Journey with Christ,”  published June 26, 2013.  For a list of lectures given at conferences, or workshops, or preaching assignments, see the appropriate sections in my “Curriculum vitae” and “Church-related activities” under “Pages.”

I continue to be available for lectures and workshops related to philosophy, the philosophy of education, religious schooling, ethics, and the ethics of proselytizing.  Within the church context I am available for preaching, or teaching assignments, or workshops on topics related to Christian ethics, a Christian worldview, Christian education, and the ethics of evangelism.

    I am thoroughly enjoying The Ethics of Evangelism. As a Christian copywriter and professor of English, you’ve provided lots of useful material for discussing a redeemed approach to persuasion. Terrific book!

    I just read your book on The Ethics of Evangelism and I thoroughly enjoyed it and agree with your arguments. Thanks for your work!
