Nancy Pearcey on Leigh! at Lunch

Dear Friends,

This Wednesday, April 6 at 12 noon on Leigh! at Lunch, we're very excited to host Nancy Pearcey, the author of The Soul of Science, Saving Leonardo, and Total Truth, as we continue our conversation about faith and science.

Nancy R. Pearcey, editor-at-large of The Pearcey Report, is joining the faculty at Rivendell Sanctuary and will begin leading classes in the Fall of 2011. She is also a columnist at Human Events and a fellow at the Discovery Institute. Previously she was the Francis A. Schaeffer Scholar at the World Journalism Institute, where she taught a worldview course based on her book Total Truth, winner of the 2005 ECPA Gold Medallion Award for best book on Christianity and Society.

She has also served as professor of worldview studies at Philadelphia Biblical University, during which time she wrote her most recent book, Saving Leonardo: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, and Meaning.

Nancy has addressed staffers on Capitol Hill and at the White House; actors and screenwriters in Hollywood; scientists at labs such as Sandia and Los Alamos; students and faculty at Stanford, Dartmouth, Princeton, USC, Ohio State, and the University of Georgia; as well as educational and activist groups, including the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. She has appeared on NPR and C-SPAN.

In addition to Saving Leonardo and Total Truth, Nancy is author of The Soul of Science and co-author of How Now Shall We Live? (with novelist Harold Fickett and former White House operative Charles W. Colson). She contributed the foreword to The Right Questions, and chapters to Of Pandas and People, Mere Creation, Pro-Life Feminism, Genetic Ethics, Signs of Intelligence, Reading God's World, Uncommon Dissent, and the Phillip Johnson festschrift Darwin's Nemesis.

Nancy and Rick are homeschooling the second of their two sons.

We're thrilled to have her on the show. Please call or chat in to join our conversation! Also, start thinking about Toward the Quadrivium: A Classical Conversation with Nancy Pearcey and Leigh Bortins! Early registration closes April 28.
