Professor John G. Stackhouse, Jr.
BA (Queen’s), MA (Wheaton), PhD (Chicago)
John Stackhouse is remarkably knowledgeable across a range of fields, including what you might call general culture: music and the arts, for example. I greatly respect his forensic skill in argument, his range of reference, and his forceful yet engaging modes of presentation.
Emeritus Professor David Martin, London School of Economics, Fellow of the British Academy
