David Horner, DPhil
Professor of Philosophy and Biblical Studies, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
David Horner received the M.Phil. in Philosophical Theology and D.Phil. in Philosophy from Oxford University. He is a fly-fishing, guitar-picking fourth-generation Colorado native whose childhood pet was a donkey (Jack A. Horner). His primary research interests are in ancient and medieval philosophy, particularly ethics. He has published journal articles, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries in early Christian thought, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, C.S. Lewis, virtue ethics, ethical eudaimonism, aesthetics, worship, and apologetics. He is the author of Mind Your Faith: A Student's Guide to Thinking and Living Well (IVP Academic, 2011). He lives in Fullerton, California, with Debbie Horner, a piano teacher and active spiritual mentor. They have two grown daughters. He no longer owns a donkey, but is keeping his options open.
