Greg Massey

Massey_greg_faculty Dr. Greg Massey earned a Ph.D. in history from the University of South Carolina in 1992. Since 1993, he has taught history at Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, Tennessee. He loves sharing with students the importance of our collective histories, as we cannot navigate our world successfully unless we think critically about the past. He also loves researching and writing, and has written two books, John Laurens and the American Revolution and By the Grace of God: The Story of Freed-Hardeman University. He has also co-edited General Nathanael Greene and the American Revolution in the South, as well as published over fifty articles and book reviews in academic journals. He lives in Tennessee with his wife and VSA teacher Kelda, their two sons, two cats, and one dog. In addition to reading the Bible aloud with his family, Greg loves engaging God’s Word in private study, always amazed at how each reading brings new insights and renewed hope. One of his favorite college courses to teach is Classical Civilizations, which includes texts written by Thucydides, Plato, Cicero, and Josephus. Those readings are timeless, as relevant to our day as they were to the Greco-Roman world.
