I am Assistant Professor of Christian Theology and Church History at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky. I am the President of the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood. Most importantly, I am married and am the father of three children.
At SBTS, I am the Director of the Carl F. H. Henry Institute for Evangelical Engagement. At Boyce, I am Chair of Gospel & Culture. I’m also a contributing writer for The Gospel Coalition, a Research Fellow of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and a fellow of the Center for Pastor-Theologians.
In 2015, I will publish several books (listed here), including the first study of Chuck Colson’s life in a decade (and the first since his 2012 death). It is entitled The Colson Way: Loving Your Neighbor and Living with Faith in a Hostile World (Thomas Nelson). In 2013, I authored Risky Gospel: Abandon Fear and Build Something Awesome. Here are the six other books I have previously published.
From 2008-10, I was the full-time Managing Director of the Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Associate Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center at TEDS. I earned a PhD in Theological Studies (Historical Theology) under Douglas Sweeney at TEDS from 2008-11, writing on Billy Graham, Harold Ockenga, and the mid-twentieth century re-enchantment of the evangelical mind. From 2005-07, I was the Editorial Assistant to Southern Seminary President Al Mohler, working for him as I completed an MDiv in Biblical & Theological Studies.
Earlier, I completed two political internships: one for Office of White House Liaison in the U. S. Department of State and another under the Commissioner of the Maine Department of Labor. In Washington, D. C. in previous days, I interned at Capitol Hill Baptist Church and wrote for 9Marks. I graduated from Bowdoin College with an AB in History in 2003 and am from the coast of Maine. Among other outlets, I have written for The Atlantic, First Things, Christianity Today, The City, and the Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology.
