George Grant is the Pastor of Parish Presbyterian Church, Director of the King’s Meadow Study Center, Founder of both Franklin Classical School and New College Franklin, and Coordinator of the Chalmers Fund. He is the author of dozens of books in the areas of history, biography, politics, literature, and social criticism and he has written hundreds of essays, articles, and columns. His work on behalf of the homeless, for international relief and development, for racial reconciliation, and for the sanctity of life has been profiled in such varied media outlets as the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Focus on the Family, The 700 Club, the Coral Ridge Hour, Point of View, Crossfire, World Magazine, and Christianity Today.

In addition to his pastoral responsibilities and regular classes in history, literature, theology, and the arts, he maintains an active writing and speaking schedule in this country and around the world. He has academic degrees in Political Science at the University of Houston (B.A.), Philosophy at Whitefield Theological Seminary (M.A., D.Litt., Ph.D.), Humanities at Belhaven College (D. Hum.), and Theology at Knox Theological Seminary (D.Min. Cand.). He makes his home in Middle Tennessee near the historic town of Franklin with his wife and co-author Karen. Together they have three grown children and four grandchildren.

Some of his most recent books include: Killer Angel: A Biography of Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger; The American Patriot’s Handbook (3rd Edition); Keystones: How Thomas Chalmers Mentored, Discipled, and Equipped Men through Scripture Memory; An Experiment in Liberty: America’s Path to Independence; and The Light of Life: The Gospel and the History of the Pro-Life Cause from the First Century to the Present.
