Nathan D. Wilson holds a Master's degree in Liberal Arts from Saint John's College in Annapolis, Maryland (2001). He served as a part-time Lecturer at New Saint Andrews from 2001-2004, and was promoted to Fellow of Literature in the fall of 2004. He still teaches part-time.
He has also recently published short fiction in both The Chattahoochee Review and Esquire (as part of the Napkin Fiction Project in the February, 2007 issue). In 2005 he published an essay inBooks & Culture entitled "Father Brown Fakes the Shroud". The piece applied the paradigm analysis of G.K. Chesteron's literary detective, Father Brown, to the mystery of the Shroud of Turin. The essay (and accompanying experiment) garnered him international attention and was featured in multiple news sources, including Discovery Channel News, ABC's World News Tonight, the BBC, Good Morning America, Der Spiegel, and (his favorite) even a segment in Comedy Central's The Daily Show.
Fairly fresh out of graduate school, he wrote two novella-length satires of evangelical apocalyptic fiction (Right Behind and Supergeddon) but has left such misbehavior behind him. He is currently focusing on several children's projects, rolling on the floor with his own children, and working on his house.
N. D. Wilson is a Fellow of Literature at New Saint Andrews College, where he teaches classical rhetoric to freshmen. He is also the managing editor for Credenda/Agenda magazine, a small Trinitarian cultural journal. He lives in Moscow, Idaho with his wife and five children.
