I'm married to the marvelous Margaret Blair Young, a fine and accomplished writer and a remarkable person. We have four children and three grandchildren.
I teach English at Brigham Young University, including courses on Shakespeare, C. S. Lewis, and world literature. Besides my family, my faith, and the topics just listed, my passions include the Beatles and the philosopher Emmanuel Levinas.
I currently have a number of blogs: "The Face of the Other" (for an explanation of the title, see here, here, and here); "Welcoming the Other", and several on politics and related matters (including here).
