Norman Geisler was born on July 21, 1932, in Warren, Mich. He is the author of Christian texts that promote the Bible and morality and serve to provide sound advice and reasoning for the Christian faith. A fervent believer in the inerrancy of the Bible, his books When Skeptics Ask and When Critics Ask provide answers to those who question discrepancies in the Bible or challenge its authority. In Legislating Morality, he discusses why laws should be passed and enforced to create a moral, Christian society. Geisler is a frequent speaker and debater, providing learned answers about religion and society. He was educated at Wheaton College, the Detroit Bible College, and Loyola University. He is currently the Dean of the Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.
