Culture Influencer: Nancy Pearcey

Nancy Pearcey, Professor of Apologetics and Scholar-in-Residence at HCU and an advisory board member for Faith and Law, spoke on her book, “The Toxic War on Masculinity: How Christianity Reconciles the Sexes,” at an event hosted by the Washington, D.C.-based non-profit organization, a community of congressional staffers and members of Congress that meet regularly to think deeply about how our faith informs and impacts our calling to the public square.

The event was held in the U.S. Senate Office Building and was led by Tim Petty, who has served as an Asst. Secretary at the U.S. Department of the Interior, a senior advisor to Senator Jim Risch, and is currently a Senior Professional Staff Member on the Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee at the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.

Petty was accompanied by his wife, Elaine Petty, an associate faculty member at the Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics at Georgetown University, who teaches Pearcey’s book “Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality.” She also works with the Endowment for Community Leadership to help promote the values of faith, family, community and civic responsibility and previously served on the Board of the Center for Bioethics & Culture.

While in Washington, D.C., Pearcey also spoke at the Church of the Resurrection located on Capitol Hill.

The renowned author holds the Elizabeth and John Gibson Chair of Apologetics at HCU and has written several best-selling, award-winning books, including “Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity” and “Love Thy Body.”
