PAUL FROESE is an Associate Professor at Baylor University and a Fellow of the Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR) who specializes in the sociology of religion. He has a MA in philosophy and completed his PhD in sociology at the University of Washington.
His first book, The Plot to Kill God: Findings from the Soviet Experiment in Secularization (University of California Press), tells the story of how atheism, when taken to its extreme, can become as dogmatic and oppressive as any religious faith. He is also a co-Principle Investigator on the Baylor Religion Surveys Project, and he is the co-author of Who Is Your God? How Our Diverse Views of God Are Shaping America, which investigates American images of God. Dr. Froese and his work have been featured on NPR, CNN, NBC, Time, Newsweek, and USA Today.
