One of the reasons that I got into academia was to do research that could help people understand the world around them in a better way. While I enjoy writing for an academic audience, my desire has always been to be accessible to the general public both in how I write and how I speak. Nothing brings more satisfaction to me than helping people have “light bulb” moments. I am very comfortable speaking in front a crowd – I’ve been preaching nearly every Sunday of my adult life. To get a sense of me, feel free to click through some of the media available on this website including the NBC Left Field Documentary that is in the section below.
If you would like me to come speak to your church, denominational meeting, leadership retreat, or anywhere else – please just send me an email at the address in the bottom left of the page.
