I am Distinguished Professor of Humanities in the Honors Program of Baylor University, and before that taught for many years at Wheaton College in Illinois. I’ve written a bunch of stuff. I am a native of Alabama. I’ve been married for thirty-seven years and have a son. I am an Anglican Christian.

I write a blog about technologies of knowledge called Text Patterns. My more random extrusions of “thought” may be found at Snakes and Ladders. Further information about my work, with many useful and entertaining links, may be found on my home page.
