About me, C. Fred Alford, and this site


My name is C. Fred Alford.  I am the curator of godblog.org.  Why I Pray, my first post (June 1, 2016), concerns the most relevant things you should know about me as far as this blog is concerned.

All posts are my own.

I am Professor Emeritus at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I taught ancient political theory (Plato and Aristotle) for 38 years.  My University web page is https://gvpt.umd.edu/facultyprofile/alford/c-fred

God Now: Christianity and Heresy, published by Wipf and Stock, is a book based on this blog.  It is available on Amazon. 

I have no professional training or background in theology.  I think and read, which is where most of my ideas come from.  I belong to Christ Episcopal Church in Maryland, but its members are  not responsible for my heretical views.

You may email me at calford@umd.edu.  I’d be glad to hear from you.  I also curate www.traumatheory.com
