In Prof. Vern Poythress all three terms meet: he is a fervent disciple of Jesus Christ and learned in many different things. Few scholars can boast his credentials: a PhD in mathematics from Harvard, a Master of Letters from Cambridge, two master’s degrees from Westminster, and a theological doctorate from Stellenbosch thrown in for good measure. Poythress is a man of wide and deep reading, voluminous publication, and thirty-plus years of teaching experience. He is well qualified to write on just about any subject–and he has. From science to sociology, many topics have found themselves under the capable investigative eye of Dr. Poythress.
