Education and work[edit]

Koukl received an M.A. in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics from Talbot School of Theology, and also an M.A. in Christian apologetics from Simon Greenleaf School of Law.[1]

In 1993 Koukl founded Stand to Reason, an organization dedicated to training those supporting his Christian viewpoints to defend their faith with "knowledge, wisdom, and character". Stand to Reason produces a weekly radio program, audio podcasts, articles, and video materials. Stand To Reason ended its radio program on KBRT, its flagship station, on 6 December 2015. Stand to Reason sponsors mission trips in which students encounter those with opposing points of view, including Mormons and atheists.[2]

His book "Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions" was cited as a must read on how to share Christian beliefs and defend Christianity in an article on the Christian Post.[3]
