Josh Pauling teaches high school history, and studied at Messiah College, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Winthrop University. He has written for Front Porch Republic, Mere Orthodoxy, Forma Journal, Salvo Magazine and Modern Reformation. He is interested in the intersections of culture, history, philosophy and theology, and the beliefs and practices of historic Christianity, which has led him to All Saints Lutheran Church (LCMS) where he is head elder. He also balances intellectual work with the satisfaction of a family homestead of sorts where he makes custom furniture and restores vintage woodworking machinery, while his wife Kristi raises chickens, tends garden, keeps bees, and cooks up a storm. They have two children who are being classically homeschooled by the “best teacher in the house,” his wife Kristi.
