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 for 38 years.  My University web page is http://gvpt.umd.edu/facultyprofile/Alford/C.%20Fred

I have no professional training or background in theology, though I’ve published a book with a chapter on the Book of Job.  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
