As Jerome K. Jerome said, I love work:
I could sit and watch people work for hours. I have studiously tried to
avoid so-called real-world employment, but let myself down badly by working
as a computer programmer in England for two years, between 1989 and 1991.
Just because I donít have any money doesnít mean I canít live like an aristocrat.
Since 1991 I have been employed by (and some slanderously assert that I
work at) Concordia University Wisconsin.
I had a somewhat Christian upbringing with a mixture of Roman Catholic and Church of England elements. Whilst a teenager, I became an agnostic, but retained an interest in religion and continued to find religious answers more persuasive than secular ones. Whilst at University I met the woman (Vicki Lynn Hubert) who is now my wife. She drew me back to the church, and I became an adult confirmand of the Lutheran Church Ė Missouri Synod. This helped to heal the wounds of my heart, but I still lacked an intellectual foundation for my faith. It was here, whilst I was supposed to be doing research in basically secular philosophy, that an unplanned (by me) foray into the works of C. S. Lewis was crucial. It all started with Surprised by Joy.
My interests now are in promoting Christian teaching and scholarship, and developing my own meager talents in that direction. Interests of mine are currently C. S. Lewis, G. K. Chesterton, Christianity and Culture, and the battle for the Christian Mind (if you want to know what that is, get George Marsdenís The Outrageous Idea of Christian Scholarship).
