Geoff Crocker graduated from Durham University in the UK with a First Class Honors degree in economics, specializing in econometrics, public and social economics, and advanced economic theory. His corporate clients have included IBM, BP, Yamaha, ABB and other industries in Europe, Asia, the United States, Africa and Australia. Over the last 20 years, he has also advised leading businesses on corporate strategy development in the Russian industrial economy. He is also the founder and Managing Director of Bristol Care Homes, a UK healthcare business. Recently achieving an MA in Philosophy from Bristol University (UK), and as a regular literature reviewer and contributor to economics blogs, Crocker continues to maintain his multi-faceted focus. From his unique synthesis of the secular and sacred, he has developed a core concern for how faith can be interpreted for the increasingly dominant atheist movement. An early adopter of evangelical Christianity, at age 14, Crocker embraced the charismatic movement in the Anglican Church. In midlife, personal crises caused him to reexamine his faith. In particular, the evangelical formulistic doctrinal idea that (divine) forgiveness depended on punishing someone else seemed perverse, even repulsive, as he believed that forgiveness needs to be freely given. He shifted away from traditional belief, eventually accepting the conclusion of secular philosophy that there may be no external God. Although he himself underwent a major re-evaluation of faith, Crocker retains a strong conviction in the value of religion as interpreted in myth. His groundbreaking new book, An Enlightened Philosophy, inspires readers to move beyond a barren confrontation between atheism and religion.
