Eric Metaxas is the author of The New York Times #1 bestseller, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, which was recently named “Book of the Year” by the ECPA. In a decidedly eclectic career, Eric Metaxas has written for VeggieTales, Chuck Colson, and The New York Times, three things not ordinarily seen in the same sentence. He is a best-selling author whose biographies, children’s books, and works of popular apologetics have been translated into many languages. A native of New York City, he is a graduate of Yale University. Metaxas is the 2011 recipient of the Canterbury Medal awarded by the Becket Fund for Religious Freedom. He is the founder and host of Socrates in the City: Conversations on the Examined Life, a monthly event of "entertaining and thought-provoking discussions on 'life, God, and other small topics'" which was mentioned in a front-page story in The New York Times. He attends Calvary/St. George’s Episcopal Church, and lives in Manhattan, New York with his wife and daughter.
