Author Biography

John Mark Reynolds provides a lively and well-informed introduction to the Greek and Christian intellectual underpinnings of Western civilization. Warning of the erosion of that foundation, he shows why and how faith and reason need to remain good neighbors. John Mark Reynolds (Ph.D., University of Rochester) is founder and director of the Torrey Honors Institute and professor of philosophy at Biola University, California. He is the coeditor (with J. P. Moreland) of Three Views on Creation and Evolution.
