  • Why I'm at Cedarville: The students are, in general, of exceptional quality. It is a pleasure to teach them, and to engage in integrative discussions with them aligning scripture, where applicable, with prominent theories, events, and issues in global politics. I also enjoy researching, especially nationalism and secession, and I have started a new book project examining what the Bible has to say about issues of nationalism.
