Sean McDowell, Ph.D.
Sean McDowell is an associate professor in the christian apologetics program at Biola University. He is also the Resident Scholar for Summit California. Sean still teaches one high school Bible class, which helps give him exceptional insight into the prevailing culture so he can impart his observations poignantly to fellow educators, pastors and parents alike. In 2008 he received the Educator of the Year award for San Juan Capistrano, California. Sean is listed among the top 100 apologists. He graduated from Talbot Theological Seminary with a double master’s degree in Theology and Philosophy and earned a doctorate in Apologetics and Worldview Studies from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2014. Sean is the author, co-author or editor of over eighteen books including: The Fate of the Apostles (Routledge, 2015) and A New Kind of Apologist (Harvest House, 2016).

J. Warner Wallace, M.A.

He continues to consult on cold-case investigations while serving as a senior fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. He is also an adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University and a faculty member at Summit Ministries. J. Warner was a conscientious and vocal atheist until the age of thirty-five, when he took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian worldview and determined that Christianity was demonstrably true. After becoming a Christ follower in 1996, Jim continued to take an evidential approach to truth as he examined the Christian worldview. He eventually earned a master’s degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.
