Douglas Wilson

As we carry over 150 items with Doug Wilson's name on them, we think that it's probably important to tell you a little bit about who he is:

Douglas Wilson has an M.A. in philosophy from the University of Idaho and has pastored Christ Church, in Moscow, Idaho, since 1977. He is married to Nancy; has three grown, faithful Christian children: Rebekah, Nathan, and Rachel; and a growing number of grandchildren. He is a prolific author, with more than thirty titles, including two children's books, a selection of poetry, and two biographies. He is best known for his books on education, which have helped to spark the Classical Education movement, and the respected Family Series, which he wrote with his wife on marriage and family.

As well as pastoring Christ Church, Doug has served as the moderator for the Anselm Presbytery of the Confederation of Reformed Evangelical Churches (CREC). He has been involved in founding and teaching at Logos School, New Saint Andrews College, and Greyfriars Hall. He edited Credenda Agenda magazine, which, given the other editors he had to work with, was too much fun. He has contributed to numerous books and magazines (such as Ligonier Ministry's Tabletalk) over the years. He now writes for his blog "Blog & MaBlog" and contributes regularly to the Canon+ App.

In 2002, Doug Wilson and three other pastors presented a series of lectures in Louisiana that ended up stirring up quite a bit of controversy. The ideas they put forth have become known as "The Federal Vision," or "Auburn Avenue Theology." Quite a few folks are seriously upset with Doug, and some have even called him a heretic. We don't agree, and hope you'll give him a fair shake. If you are willing to give him a chance to defend his own orthodoxy, you may order a copy of his CREC Presbytery Examination, recorded in 2004.
