Introduction I am a former Christian minister and apologist with M.A., M.Div., and Th.M. degrees in Philosophy, Theology, and the Philosophy of Religion, having studied under Drs. James D. Strauss and William Lane Craig. Then I studied in a Ph.D. program at Marquette University for a year and a half in the area of Theology and Ethics. You can read more about me here.

I am the author of the book, "Why I Became an Atheist: A Former Preacher Rejects Christianity." I edited "The Christian Delusion: Why Faith Fails," and "The End of Christianity." In 2013 my book on “The Outsider Test for Faith” will be published. I have also co-authored, with Dr. Randal Rauser, a book to be published by Baker Books in 2013 titled, "God or Godless."

I am available for speaking or debate requests and I can do atheist weddings or funerals. I can only correspond at some length with people who have previously read my book(s) because I probably already answered most of your questions there. I hope you understand.
