"We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function.” -C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man
  • Teaching & Education

    I have taught at Houston Baptist University (now Houston Christian University), Union University, and am now at North Greenville University. I received my bachelor’s degree in economics and political science from Florida State University, a master’s in public administration from the University of Georgia, a law degree from the University of Houston, and a Ph.D. from Baylor University in politics and religion.

  • Professional Experience

    I have worked as a corporate industry analyst, a lobbyist, a writer, a professor, a higher education consultant, and an academic administrator.

  • Selected Publications

    I have written three books, which are The End of Secularism, Political Thought: A Student’s Guide, and The System Has a Soul. In addition, I have published dozens of essays and book chapters in edited volumes.

  • My Network

    I am connected to the Acton Institute, the Center for Religion, Culture, and Democracy, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Church, Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity, and World Magazine.

  • My Story

    I became a Christian at Florida State University as a freshman. It changed the trajectory of my entire life and re-ordered my priorities. Reading figures such as C.S. Lewis, Peter Kreeft, and Francis Schaeffer awakened me to the many ways Christianity should affect one’s thinking and the entire culture. Because college was such a pivotal time for me, I realized that I wanted to work with students and professors on college campuses and have spent much of my life doing so.
