I grew up in Alabama, attended the University of Alabama, then got my PhD at the University of Virginia. In 1984 I started teaching at Wheaton College in Illinois. In 2013 my family and I moved to Waco, Texas, where I am now Distinguished Professor of the Humanities in the Honors Program. My dear wife Teri and I have been married for thirty-six years, and have one son, Wesley.
My work is hard to describe, at least for me, because it revolves around multiple interests, primary among them being literature, theology, and technology. I also watch soccer and write about it, but that's purely recreational.
You can find out a lot more about me online: Twitter, my blogs, my home page. Google is the friend of inquiring minds.
