About the Author:

Dr. Peter A. Lillback is the president of The Providence Forum, the non-profit organization committed to preserve, defend and advance the faith and values of our nation s founding. He is also senior pastor of Proclamation Presbyterian Church in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, and president of Westminster Theological Seminary. He has also been Professor of Church History at Reformed Episcopal Seminary in Philadelphia. Dr. Lillback holds degrees from Cedarville University (B.A.), Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M.), and Westminster Theological Seminary (Ph.D.). He is most recently the author of the nationally bestselling books Wall of Misconception Does the Separation of Church and State Mean the Separation of God and Government? (Providence Forum Press), and George Washington s Sacred Fire (Providence Forum Press), representing the culmination of over 20 years of primary-source research and scholarship, for which he has received scholarly acclaim, national press and media coverage. He is also the author of The Binding of God: Calvin s Role in the Development of Covenant Theology (Baker), the editor of and contributor to The Practical Calvinist: An Introduction to the Presbyterian and Reformed Heritage (Christian Focus). He has published many articles, including as a contributor to The Washington Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Evening Bulletin. In July 2005 Dr. Lillback became only the fourth president of Westminster Theological Seminary in its rich 80-year history. He is a tenured Professor of Historical Theology and has taught courses through the whole range of church history, with a special interest in the Reformation and early modern era. Living between Philadelphia and Valley Forge for many years, Dr. Lillback has pursued an avid interest in the history of the Judeo-Christian heritage of the United States. He has performed research and study on the founding and Founders of our nation through examination of original source documents in countless libraries and archives. Among the outgrowths of his research are Freedom's Holy Light...with a firm reliance on Divine Providence (Providence Forum Press), and Proclaim Liberty... a Broken Bell Rings Freedom to the World (Providence Forum Press). Beyond his historical interests, Dr. Lillback is a popular speaker and writer on many worldview issues, and has debated, among others, Barry Lynn, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. He is the voice of Proclaiming The Word, a daily syndicated radio program also heard on Sirius Satellite Radio, as well as The Proclamation Worship Hour. His unparalleled scholarship, warm disposition and unique style have made him a much sought-after speaker at public, religious and academic events and venues around the world.
