Dr. Alexander was a dedicated young Episcopalian. In 1965, at a Young Life camp he turned his heart to Christ. He was fed and nourished by Anglican spirituality. He became a professor of English and Religious studies at Hillsdale College. While teaching a course on Dante’s “Divine Comedy,” his heart began to be turned toward the Catholic faith. He was received into the Church in the spring of 1992. Dr. Alexander is now a professor of English at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
