I am Assistant Professor of Christian Theology and Church History at Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky and the Executive Director of the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood. I also teach for The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
I’m a contributing writer for The Gospel Coalition, a blog columnist for Credo magazine, a contributor to Project TGM, and a fellow of the Society for the Advancement of Ecclesial Theology. 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 a couple political internships: one for Office of White House Liaison in the U. S. Department of State and another in the Maine Department of Labor.
In Washington, D. C., 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. A member of Kenwood Baptist Church, I am married to the lovely Bethany and am the father of two sweet little kids. A hip hop aficionado and player of pickup basketball, I’ve cut a rap cd (no, seriously).
I have published six books and have written for The Atlantic, First Things, Christianity Today, and the Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology.
