Carl Trueman


Carl Trueman is a professor of humanities at Grove City College in Pennsylvania.  He was born in Dudley in the United Kingdom and grew up in the idyllic rural surroundings of the West Country. He has previously been a faculty member at the Universities of Nottingham and Aberdeen in the UK and Westminster Theological Seminary (PA)  For the academic year of 2017-18, he was the William E. Simon Visiting Fellow in Religion and Public Life on the James Madison Program at Princeton University. From 2012 to 2018 he was also Pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church (OPC) in Ambler, Pa. In his spare time he runs, listens to rock and classical music, and does what his wife tells him. Carl enjoys reading melancholy poetry, bleak and depressing nineteenth century novels, biographies of Napoleon, and watching hard-boiled crime series. Banned or blacklisted or simply despised by most of the respectable evangelical establishment, he avoids social media such as Twitter and Facebook because his sensitive disposition means that he could not cope with him being blocked there as well. He knows that he coulda had class, he coulda been a contender, he coulda been somebody. Instead he just got a one-way ticket to Palookaville.
