My passion is “connecting the dots” between faith and science, and equipping believers to be confident ambassadors for Christ through an understanding of worldview and apologetics. My wife Sue and I have served with Probe Ministries, a Christian worldview and apologetics ministry, since 1975. We both love to see the light bulb come on when a student, no matter what age, gets an “Aha moment.”
Although I have served in ministry since college, all of my education is in science. I first earned a B.S. in zoology from the University of Illinois. At the University of North Texas, I earned an M.S. in population genetics, which is actually evolutionary biology. I knew that if I were going to be a critic of evolution, I needed to understand it better than the evolutionists. At the University of Texas at Dallas, I earned a second Masters and a Ph.D. in molecular and cell biology. So I have studied evolution on the macro level of animals and the micro level of molecules, all of which served to solidify my absolute conviction that God is Creator who has left His fingerprints all over His creation—and I see science as the study of those fingerprints.
I have been privileged to lecture and debate on dozens of college and university campuses in the U.S. and internationally. I have addressed issues in the creation/evolution debate as well as other science-related issues such as the environment, genetic engineering, medical ethics, and sexually transmitted diseases. I am also a Fellow with the Discovery Institute in the area of Intelligent Design.
Sue (an experienced and acclaimed teacher as well) and I enjoy team teaching as she assists me by adding color commentary, insightful comments and illustrations, and her own take on some of our apologetics material.
