Our Faculty

Our faculty are all caring, committed Christians who would like to see our students graduate with a well-reasoned, coherent Christian worldview that can be a positive force in the marketplace of ideas.

Prof Robin Collins
The Messiah philosophy department believes in exposing students in a sophisticated way to the best thinking about the issues of great cultural significance. To meet this challenge, we have a highly qualified and well-rounded philosophy faculty.

Professor Robin Collins, Ph.D., specializes in philosophy of science, philosophy of religion, metaphysics, and philosophical theology. He is well versed in issues relating to science and religion, with graduate-level training in theoretical physics. He is currently working on a book entitled The Well-designed Universe: God, Fine-tuning, and the Laws of Nature, which argues that the basic structure of the universe strongly points to the existence of a Designer.

Professor Caleb Miller, Ph.D., specializes in ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics. He is well versed on moral theory and applied ethics, the relationship of human belief and knowledge to reality, and the relationship of faith and reason.

Professor David Schenk, Ph.D., specializes in metaphysics, phenomenology, the philosophy of time, and epistemology. His current research is in the nature of religious experience and the various versions of an argument from religious experience that attempts to establish the existence of God.

Professor Tim Schoettle, Ph.D., specializes in philosophy of mind and phenomenology. Though Tim writes in the style of analytic philosophy, his research draws from a wide range of thinkers both analytic and continental including Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, Lacan, Derrida, Merleau-Ponty, Freud, Carnap and Schlick.

The teaching, research, and writing of all the department's faculty are especially focused on the relationship of important philosophic issues to the concerns of Christian faith.
