About the Author
Hello and welcome to my blog "Meaning of Religion". I’m Dr. James Rowell, and let me introduce myself. I’m a New Englander, a Star Wars and Tolkien fan, with a long-term interest in religion. I finished my Doctorate in Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh in 2002. I began as a full-time teacher of religion in 2006. My views here are my own. They do not represent any of the institutions I’ve been at. My own view has been "Christian Universalist", which affirms the moral truth of Christianity, while embracing the value of many other religions and perspectives as part of meaningful whole.
