Articles | Resources

Carl Trueman was born in Dudley of the United Kingdom and grew up in the West Country. He was on faculty at the Universities of Nottingham and Aberdeen before moving to the U.S. to teach at Westminster Theological Seminary (PA) in 2001 and is now also pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Ambler. For the academic year of 2017-18, he is the William E. Simon Visiting Fellow in Religion and Public Life on the James Madison Program at Princeton University. In his spare time he runs, listens to rock music, and does what his wife tells him. Carl relishes reading melancholy poetry, bleak and depressing nineteenth century novels, and hard-boiled crime fiction. Banned or blacklisted by most of the respectable evangelical establishment, he knows that he coulda had class, he coulda been a contender, he coulda been somebody. Instead he just got a one-way ticket to Palookaville.
