Dr. Moreland first gained recognition when in a debate with renowned atheist Kai Nielsen, he displayed an uncanny ability to connect with the audience in arguing for the existence of God. This turned into a book, "Does God Exist?" co-authored with Nielsen. Dr. Moreland has since become a well-known name in Christian apologetics, speaking and debating at colleges and universities throughout the United States. As a scholar, Dr. Moreland devotes much of his efforts to epistemology and metaphysics, but also has over a decade of experience with Campus Crusade in helping young people to think intelligently about issues of faith. He is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology, Director of Eidos Christian Center, and a Fellow of the Discovery Institute's Center for the Renewal of Science and Culture. Dr. Moreland has published more than fifty articles in academic journals, and has studied at the University of Missouri, the University of California—Riverside, Dallas Theological Seminary, and received his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California.
