He has served as a research fellow at Princeton University and has held full-time faculty appointments at Trinity International University, Whittier College and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is a nationally recognized authority on issues of church and state and the relationship between religion and public policy.
He is a graduate of Fordham University with a doctorate and a master's degree in philosophy. He also holds a master of juridical studies degree from the Washington University School of Law in St. Louis.
He has written or edited 11 books, primarily focusing on Christian interaction with social ethics and public policy issues. He has also published articles in over a dozen professional journals on philosophy, law, ethics and religion and in six scholarly encyclopedias.
