Welcome Eric Teetsel


This week, we’re pleased to welcome Eric Teetsel as a guest contributor at Ricochet.

Eric directs the Manhattan Declaration, a national movement of Christians for life, marriage, and religious freedom founded by Charles Colson. Before joining the Declaration, he founded the Values & Capitalism program at the American Enterprise Institute with Henry Olsen and Arthur Brooks, and worked for former U.S. Senator Bill Armstrong at Colorado Christian University, along with numerous other initiatives.

A prolific writer and speaker, Eric was recently featured in WORLD Magazine’s “Emerging Christian Voices” series. He blogs regularly at Patheos and has written for Relevant and The City.

Eric and his wife Abby, live in Washington, D.C. with their dog Nash. 

Please welcome Eric Teetsel to Ricochet!

    Welcome to Ricochet, Eric:

    Chuck Colson would, no doubt, be proud of your new association with this fine organization!

    I, too, read your article about Tim at Patheos, last November. I was very moved.

    No doubt, many here will be eagerly awaiting your first ‘contribution’!

    Welcome! What could be more relevant than life, marriage, and religious freedom, all of which are under siege. Thank you.

    Welcome, Eric! I always love hearing you on RJ’s podcast, and I was particularly moved by this article you wrote: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/manhattanproject/2012/11/my-gay-roommate/

    Your friend is one of the bravest men I’ve ever heard of. Please give him my highest regards.
