About me

Introduction I'm a devoted family guy, a college and seminary prof in philosophy and religious studies, a United Methodist elder, and a freelance writer (especially but not limited to church curriculum). I've written seventeen books and have contributed to ten others. As with this blog, I enjoy delving into a variety of subjects. My books include a study book on Galatians, a book on the sense of place, a study of Karl Barth's theology, and another on the complementariness of science and religion. One of my books, "What Do Other Faiths Believe?" has sold over 20,000 copies. My first book, "High on the Okaw's Western Bank," is a history of my hometown (Vandalia, IL) when it was the Illinois state capital, where Lincoln and Douglas began their political careers. In addition to numerous articles, essays, lessons, meditations, reviews, and poetry, I also wrote or researched over 180 issues of the online curriculum "FaithLink," on many contemporary topics like health care, climate, poverty, prison reform, family, education, and others. Several of my books are available at, as well as and
