Bill Watkins makes you think. More to the point, he challenges you to think. William D. Watkins' specialty is turning assumptions upside down and provoking analysis.
Lecturer and teacher, philosopher and theologian, author and musician, Watkins is an ordained minister in the evangelical protestant tradition, and holds a B. A. in Philosophy from California State University at Fresno, and a Masters in Systematic Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. Previously he was the director of Educational Resources for Insight for Living.
"I read philosophy and theology books like other people read comic books&quickly and easily," Watkins says. "But on the other hand, I write very much like I talk or teach. I take difficult material and make it accessible and interesting to readers."
Currently Watkins is the director of publications of the American Center for Law and Justice, a public interest law firm and educational organization. He is the vice president of publishing for the Liberty, Life and Family Institute, a cultural think tank, and he is founding editor of Liberty, Life, and Family, a journal of interdisciplinary concerns. Watkins also serves as an editorial advisor for Culture Wars, a journal of cultural commentary on contemporary issues. Previously, he was the director of educational resources for Insight for Living.
A prolific writer, he is the author of numerous books, including In Defense of Life, coauthored with Keith A. Fournier, and Worlds Apart: A Handbook on World Views, written with Norman L. Geisler. He has written numerous essays and articles appearing in such diverse publications as Christianity Today, Themelios, Trinity Journal, Law & Justice, Insights, Cornerstone, Christian Research Journal, and Moody Magazine.
When he is not writing, speaking, or teaching, Watkins spends most of his time with his wife, Pamela, and their five children, ages fifteen to twenty-three. He enjoys taking walks, playing with the family dog, Steinbeck, or tinkering around in their yard or gardens. He is also an avid fan of the arts enjoying movies, concerts, and plays. All his hobbies take backseat, however, to his first love&readingreadingreadingand more reading. He lives with his family in Tennessee.size : 5.4 x 8.3
