Peter Freund is the chapter director for Ratio Christi and the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville campus. In addition to his years of teaching apologetics at church, he has taught college philosophy to undergrad students as an adjunct professor for 11 years. He has an M.A. in Philosophy of Religion / Ethics from Talbot School of Theology, and another M.A. in New Testment from the same school. He is currently earning two M.S. degrees in Clinicnal Mental Health Counseling and Marriage & Family Therapy from John Brown University. He has particular interests in philosophical apologetics and integration.
Recently, he co-authored and presented a paper at EPS on the influence of postmodernism in the counseling field, and is working to get the paper published.
In addition to philosophy, theology, apologetics, and psychology, Peter is a semi-professional saxophone player, fiction writer, and music composer.
Peter distinctly remembers his conversion from non-theism to theism in preschool but later became a Christian in his teenage years. Challenges to his faith by family members drove him to find solace amidst his own doubts, eventually leading him to philosophy and apologetics.
