Interviewed by Peter Enns for “Consider No Evil”

Over at Peter Enns blog at Patheos, I was interviewed for my new book, Consider No Evil. Check it out.

“…So one of the points I make in the book is that if you want to say your religion makes the world better, then you really should try to prove it by helping your community members to thrive rather than looking for every legal loophole to get rid of them…” Continue reading at Patheos…

Westminster Theological Seminary Plunges Deeper into Fundamentalism

Now that my book (Consider No Evil: Two Faith Traditions and the Problem of Academic Freedom in Religious Higher Education) is out, I thought that I might have given my last word on Westminster Theological Seminary.

Exit Stage Left: On My Departure from Winebrenner

This year I’ve decided to make big changes in my life.
