My love of ancient history began in childhood watching The Mummy starring Boris Karloff. Later in high school, I was blessed with a passionate history teacher who made history come alive in class, and in college, my Western Civilization professor enriched my understanding of the Greco-Roman world, inspiring me to discover deeper truths of the past. Not surprisingly, I went on to earn a M.A.T.S. in Christian History and Thought and a PhD in Theology and Religion (Sociology of).
I have taught History, Sociology, Bible, and Religion for nearly two decades at several Christian universities in the Pacific Northwest and the East Coast, utilizing my educational experience and knowledge to help students more fully understand the culture and historical context of Christianity and why ancient historical studies are still relevant in the present.
My favorite quotation: If I have seen further, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants. ~ Isaac Newton
