About

Welcome to TheEcclesialCalvinist, the blog of William B. Evans.  I’m glad you’ve found your way here!   This website is a work in progress, but I trust you will find it easy to navigate and find what you are looking for.

A native of North Carolina, I was raised in the Tarheel State and in central Indiana.  I was educated at Taylor University (B.A.), Westminster Theological Seminary (M.A.R., Th.M.), and Vanderbilt University (M.A., Ph.D.), where I completed my doctorate in History of Christian Thought in 1996.  Currently I am the Younts Professor of Historical Theology at Erskine Theological Seminary.  My research interests include American Christianity and religion, soteriology, the history of Reformed theology, the Mercersburg Theology, and world Christianity.

I am a minister in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church and have over the years served in a variety of Presbytery and Synod-level offices.

My wife Fay teaches high-school English in Greenwood, South Carolina.  Our son Andrew is a 2012 graduate of Davidson College and worked as an editor and journalist in Washington, DC, and he currently lives with his wife Stefanie in London.  Our daughter Becca is a 2014 graduate of Davidson.  She worked as a research biologist at NIH in Durham, NC for two years, and is now a medical student at UNC-Chapel Hill.
