Stan Heck

Christian Author / Clinical Psychologist

Stan Heck brings his faith, his concern for others and his training in Biblical studies and psychology to all he does.

His writings as a Christian embrace the wisdom of God’s Word in the Bible and the sciences – both the physical sciences like cosmology and evolution and the social science of psychology. Unlike those who see science as the enemy of religion, Dr. Heck views science as the study of God’s creation, a path to greater faith and understanding of our world.
