I am a life-long Texan, coming to Malone from Baylor University where I taught in the Department of Religion for two years before earning the Ph.D. in May of 2006. I also studied at Fuller Theological Seminary and earned the MDiv degree in 2001. My research and writing interests are primarily in constructive and philosophical theology, and especially in the mid-twentieth century French Resourcement best exemplified in the work of Henri de Lubac. I've been married to Suzanne for more than 18 years, and we have three growing children: Harrison, Claire, and John.
