Nancy Pearcey

Nancy Pearcey was one of the hippies who stumbled across Francis Schaeffer's ministry L'Abri in Switzerland in the early 1970s and was surprised to discover that there are actually good reasons and arguments supporting Christianity. She gave up her agnosticism and ever since has been writing about Christianity as a worldview that applies to every area of life.

Pearcey is best known for her book Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity, which was a 2005 ECPA Gold Medallion Award winner. She co-authored Now Shall We Live? (with Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson), which was a 2000 ECPA Gold Medallion Award winner. Her latest book is Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality.

Pearcey has been heralded as "America's pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual" in The Economist). She earned an MA from Covenant Theological Seminary and pursued further graduate work in History of Philosophy at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto. Currently she is professor and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University, as well as a fellow of the Discovery Institute and editor-at-large of The Pearcey Report. As founding editor of the radio program BreakPoint, she also coauthored a monthly column with Chuck Colson in Christianity Today.

Pearcey has contributed to several books and published more than a hundred articles. She has spoken in the US Capitol and the White House; at universities such as Princeton, Stanford, Dartmouth, and USC; to actors in Hollywood and artists in New York City; on NPR and C-SPAN. Her earlier books include The Soul of Science, Saving Leonardo, and Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes.
