Welcome to teii.org (also johnrankin.org), home of the TEI International. The TEI seeks to advance the biblical love of hard questions across all human culture, and this is what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
The TEI was founded by the Rev. John C. Rankin in 1990. John is a West Hartford, Connecticut native, he grew up in an agnostic Unitarian context before he encountered the living presence of the one true Creator, and converted to a biblical and evangelical faith as a 14-year old in 1967. He is a graduate of South Kent School, Denison University (B.A. History), Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and Harvard Divinity School (Th.M. Ethics and Public Policy); and in the spring of of 2014 will enter an M.Phil./Ph.D. program at the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies (planning to exegete the opening assumptions in Genesis). He and his wife Nancy were married in 1977 and have four grown children. His books include The Six Pillars of Biblical Power, The Six Pillars of Honest Politics, Jesus, in the Face of His Enemies, Genesis and the Power of True Assumptions, and The Real Muḥammad: In the Eyes of Ibn Isḥāq.
