The American Roundtable’s cross-disciplinary team of writer-scholars is led by the Chancellor and Founder of Patrick Henry College, Dr. Michael Farris, a constitutional attorney, author, and homeschooling pioneer. It also includes distinguished cultural commentator and PHC Provost Dr. Gene Edward Veith, renowned author and Christian apologist Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, and author and PHC history professor Dr. David Aikman, as well as PHC President Dr. Graham Walker, Journalism Department Director Dr. Les Sillars, and editor David Halbrook, PHC’s Director of Communications. We hope you will enjoy these thoughtful, biblically-informed commentaries on many of the complex and pressing issues affecting our world and nation.
