For the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ

Dan DeWitt

Dan DeWitt, Associate Professor of Applied Theology and Apologetics


Dr. Dan DeWitt is from a small town in the middle of a cornfield in central Illinois. He was, however, close enough to the city of Springfield to manage to get a little culture. He came to faith in Christ at the age of 15. He always wanted to be an artist, but felt that serious Christians didn't bother with such trivialities. Reading a British author named G.K. Chesterton changed his mind. In addition to teaching and writing, he sometimes doodles. He feel that there's a time for an academic textbook and a time for a sketch book. His favorite author is C.S. Lewis, and he thinks yours should be too. 

Dr. DeWitt spends most of his research and writing time at the intersection of faith and secularism. His areas of expertise are worldview studies, apologetics, and cultural engagement.
