Welcome to my blog. I'll be posting regularly about my many areas of research. My current project is called "Must the Sun Set on the West?" It's about how the Bible is the source of the freedom and prosperity that Europe and America have experienced in modern times. I delivered a series of lectures on this at the University of Minnesota, which you can download from my website, and a book version will be published sometime in 2009. You can also check out my YouTube channel, where I have a series of videos making the case that Barack Obama owes his election to the Bible.
