A popular lecturer, he has also taught at many other colleges, seminaries and educational institutions in the eastern United States.

Reviews

"Kreeft has succeeded admirably in his revival of Socrates. . . . Kreeft's Socrates [is] recognizably the gadfly moralist, irreverent and reverent about just the right things." -- The Reformed Journal
