Jim Bradley taught mathematics and computer science at Calvin College from 1986 to 2005 and served as Calvin’s director of assessment and institutional research from 2005 to 2007. His work explores the relationship between randomness and probability, challenging the common perception that there is no purpose in the world because biology and physics show that reality is random. 

From 2000 to 2001, Bradley served as a William C. Foster fellow with the United States Department of State, consulting on the problems of arms control and missile defense. Long a leader in Christian explorations of the nature of mathematics, he is the co-author of Mathematics through the Eyes of Faith and co-editor of Mathematics in a Postmodern Age: A Christian Perspective.
