Jay Black & White.jpg

Jay writes and lectures on philosophy, theology, politics, and economics—sometimes all at once.

His first book, Rights in the Law, explores the relationship between God and morality in the thought of Francis Turretin (1623–1687).

Jay is currently writing a book on Christianity, justice, and equality—and blogging about it, too.

He has also written for Acton Commentary, Law and LibertyThe Gospel Coalition, The Wall Street Journal, and WORLD magazine.


Associate Professor of Philosophy at John Brown University


Ph.D. in Philosophy from Baylor University
