Hi. My name is Paul Wallace and I am the author of psnt.net. Here’s a little about me in case you’re interested.
A science nerd since childhood, I received my PhD in experimental nuclear physics from Duke University in 1996, did the obligatory postdoc, and moved to gamma-ray astronomy. From 1998 until 2008 I was a professor of physics and astronomy at Berry College in Rome, Ga. At that point I returned with my family to my hometown of Atlanta where I started the Master of Divinity program at Candler School of Theology at Emory University. I graduated with a concentration in historical theology in May 2011. In November 2014 I was ordained into the gospel ministry by First Baptist Church of Decatur, Ga., a congregation of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
I teach physics and astronomy at Agnes Scott College in Decatur. I also occasionally teach at Candler and Columbia Theological Seminary. Though a Christian, I have a deep affection for Buddhism and have twice served on the faculty of the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative in Dharamshala, India. In an earlier life I spent three fun-filled summers in Greenbelt, Md. as a Faculty Fellow at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
My first book, Stars Beneath Us: Finding God in the Evolving Cosmos, was released by Fortress Press on March 1, 2016. You can order it here.
I am married to Elizabeth Sides Wallace and we have three children. We live in Atlanta and like it fine.
Periodically I am invited to preach and/or speak at churches and colleges. Please contact me through the comments form below if you would like to talk about the possibility of me visiting your organization or group. Your email address will not appear publicly. We can communicate via email once I receive your note. I am happy to provide references.
I hope you enjoy my tiny corner of the Internet. Please contact me by leaving a comment below if you have any questions, comments, radical remarks, shouts of joy, or other observations.
