A blog about the Great Books, the Craft of Writing, and Human Flourishing.



C. S. Lewis said, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”

I hope your visit here will be the beginning of that kind of friendship.

If you’re a teacher, a writer, or a creative professional stimulated by intellectual conversation, intrigued by the perennial human questions, or if you simply like to read great books–preferably with a pipe in your teeth and a pencil in your hand–then I’d be honored to set you a place at the table.

Enter your email below and join our merry band of bards, bishops, bibliophiles, students, scholars, philosophers, poets, preachers, and pirates. Of course, it’s absolutely free and you can opt out any time.

A Little Background


I’m a teacher, a writer, and the director of Poiema, an institute for faith, culture, and creativity.

(I also teach for Logos Online School and Roman Roads Media.)

I currently live in North Idaho with Tammy, my bride of 26 years; we have four adult children, and two grandbabies.

Inspired by the classical and Christian imagination, my passion is to help creative professionals cultivate their capacity to understand and appreciate the true, the good and the beautiful so they can flourish in life and fulfill their vocation as the unacknowledged legislators of the world.

For more than 20 years, I served as a minister and educator, developing youth, planting churches, and starting private schools. Prior to that, I served in the Air Force at the close of the Cold War Era and during Operation Desert Shield, repairing electronic counter-measure systems on B-52 Bombers.

Currently, I’m pursuing a PhD in humane letters, focusing on the literature, philosophy, and theology of the Western tradition and its relationship to the revival of Christian humanism in a post-modern culture (anticipated completion, 2019).

I have earned degrees in classical studies (M.A.C.C.S., Knox Theological Seminary), religion and English literature (B.S., Liberty University), and creative writing (A.A., College of Southern Nevada).
