William Lane Craig (Ed)

William Lane Craig is Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California. He and his wife Jan have been married since 1971, and have two adult children.

Dr. Craig was born in 1949, in Peoria, Illinois. From an early age, he proved to be a champion debater at school. At the age of sixteen as a junior in high school, he first heard the message of the Christian gospel and yielded his life to Christ.

Dr. Craig pursued his undergraduate studies at Wheaton College (B.A. 1971) and graduate studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.A. 1974; M.A. 1975), the University of Birmingham (England) (Ph.D. 1977), and the University of Munich (Germany) (D.Theol. 1984). From 1980-86 he taught Philosophy of Religion at Trinity, during which time he and Jan started their family. In 1987 they moved to Brussels, Belgium, where Dr. Craig pursued research at the University of Louvain until assuming his position at Talbot in 1994.

Dr Craig has emerged as one of the most redoubtable defenders of Christian truth at the top levels of academic philosophy in our time. He has publicly debated theologians, biblical scholars, philosophers, scientists, and various pundits on matters of Christian truth, including Antony Flew, Lawrence Krauss, Marcus Borg, Gerd Ludemann, Bart Ehrman, Christopher Hitchens, and several prominent Muslim apologists. Richard Dawkins has refused to debate with him.

Dr Craig has authored or edited over thirty books, including The Kalam Cosmological Argument, which has prompted more articles in contemporary philosophical journals than any other current argument for God's existence; also Assessing the New Testament Evidence for the Historicity of the Resurrection of Jesus; Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom; Theism, Atheism and Big Bang Cosmology; and God, Time and Eternity, as well as over a hundred articles in professional journals of philosophy and theology, including The Journal of Philosophy, New Testament Studies, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, American Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Studies, Philosophy, and British Journal for Philosophy of Science
