I grew up on a farm outside Bloomdale, Ohio, a town of 700. I am married to Amy Black (Treier), who teaches Political Science at Wheaton, and we have a daughter named Anna. My church background prepared me for Wheaton by including Methodist, Grace Brethren, Baptist, Evangelical Free, briefly Anglican, and now Presbyterian churches: my theological commitments are evangelical and eclectic, very broadly in the Reformed tradition. My scholarship focuses generally on evangelical systematic theology and theological interpretation of the Bible, more specifically on Christology and cultural engagement. A unifying theme is pursuit of biblical wisdom. Hobbies include reading, watching baseball, reading, golfing, and reading.
