Bio: Sarah C. Geis received her Master’s degree in philosophy of religion from Denver Seminary in 2012, and is beginning Ph.D. work in philosophy of religion at the University of Birmingham. Since graduating from Denver Seminary, she has taught undergraduate Introduction to Philosophy and Introduction to Ethics at Community College of Aurora, as well as graduate-level philosophy, apologetics, religious pluralism, and Christian ethics at Denver Seminary. She is also a faculty mentor for Columbia Evangelical Seminary. In 2013, along with Douglas Groothuis, she co-founded The Gordon Lewis Center for Christian Thought and Culture at Denver Seminary, a Christian education outreach to Denver, which she currently co-directs. She has published work in The Christian Research Journal, Denver Journal, on the popular Patheos web page, and the well-established journal, Bibliotheca Sacra. Sarah is also a painter and former full-time horse trainer. Her passion is to pursue truth through careful reason and to help other do the same.
“I have known Sarah Geis since she was a college student. I was taken by the seriousness of her studies, the keenness of her intellect, her kindness, and her zeal for Christ, his Kingdom, and his people.
Sarah earned the best philosophy student award for the 2012 graduating class at Denver Seminary. She founded The Gordon Lewis Center for Christian Thought and Culture in 2013 and is co-director of that ministry. She is a gifted and passionate teacher who has taught challenging courses at Denver Seminary (including epistemology and Christian Apologetics) and at Community College of Aurora. Community College of Aurora named her the best humanities teacher for the 2013-2014 academic year. She presented papers at The International Society of Christian Apologetics conference in 2013 and 2014, and will be a plenary speaker at their conference in 2015.
Professor Geis has published two articles in The Christian Research Journal—on Plato and hermeneutics—and will have another article published there on the moral argument for God. Her co-written paper on the theology of prayer will be published in Bibliotheca Sacra in early 2015. I know Professor Geis to be a devout Christian and an astute philosopher whose achievements are substantial and whose potential is even greater.” – Douglas Groothuis, Ph.D.
