    Greg Koukl started out thinking he was too smart to become a Christian and ended up giving his life for the defence of the Christian faith. A central theme of Greg's speaking and writing is that Christianity can compete in the marketplace of ideas when it's properly understood and properly articulated. Greg is founder and president of Stand to Reason, and is an author and radio show host.  
         
    Dr William Lane Craig is Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California. He and his wife Jan have two grown children. At the age of sixteen as a junior in high school, he first heard the message of the Christian gospel and yielded his life to Christ. Dr. Craig pursued his undergraduate studies at Wheaton College (B.A. 1971) and graduate studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.A. 1974; M.A. 1975), the University of Birmingham (England) (Ph.D. 1977), and the University of Munich (Germany) (D.Theol. 1984). From 1980-86 he taught Philosophy of Religion at Trinity. In 1987 the family moved to Brussels, Belgium, where Dr. Craig pursued research at the University of Louvain until assuming his position at Talbot in 1994. His work is featured on his website www.reasonablefaith.com.  
         
    Jim Wallace is a detective (currently working cold case homicides), a missions leader and a church planter. His background was originally in design (earning a BFA from California State University at Long Beach and a Master's in Architecture from UCLA), but he has been a police officer and detective for the past 23 years. Jim was a vocal atheist until his mid-30s, and always considered himself to be an “evidentialist”. His experience in law enforcement only served to strengthen his conviction that truth is tied directly to evidence. But when Jim took his first serious look at the evidence for the Christian world view he realized that Christianity was demonstrably true. He earned a Master's Degree in Theology from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and built the PleaseConvinceMe.com website, blog and podcast. Jim is married (to the love of his life since 1979) and has four children. He is the primary author of the PleaseConvinceMe Article Archive and the host of the PleaseConvinceMe Podcast.

He is a member of the executive council of the Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation, a Fellow of the American Scientific Affiliation, and cited in the Who's Who of Theology and Science.
