Paul Spears teaches at Biola University. He is intensely interested in how foundational philosophical commitments drive educational theories. In his work he investigates how educational history, philosophy and learning theories combine to construct educational praxis. Dr. Spears has lead groups of Torrey Honors students to Mongolia to work with Campus Crusade for Christ. He has spoken widely on apologetics, theology, and educational philosophy. He has written a chapter on philosophy for ACSI's Foundations of Christian Education, and recently co-authored a book on educational philosophy, Educating for Human Flourishing: A Christian Perspective. Before teaching at Biola, Dr. Spears worked as a youth minister. With a Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University, he also holds degrees from Biola and Multnomah College.
