The Constitution StudyNashville, TN
Paul Engel founded the Constitution Study after realizing how little most Americans know about the supreme law of the land and how that lack of knowledge has impacted our rights and freedoms. After reading a report that found 36% of American could not name a single freedom protect by the First Amendment, Paul started a small Constitution Study in his hometown in Upstate NY. After the success of the study, he decided to expand the audience, starting The Constitution Study with the goal of providing resources everyday Americans can use to learn about the Constitution and help start studies of their own.
Paul spent 30 years working in the IT industry and more than 20 as a Sunday School teacher and part-time preacher. He uses the skills he developed in IT and studying and teach about the Bible to help explain not the Constitution and its history, but do so in a way anyone from 8 to 80 can understand. One person describe Paul's teaching style as “He teaches even the most complex ideas in a way my grandmother can understand.” More than just reiterating what others have said, another reader describes Paul's work this way. “For me, The Constitution Study has opened my eyes to the many ‘untaught' areas of the US Constitution.”
Paul currently has essays on the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the 16th & 17th Amendments available on Amazon.com. He is finishing the book The Constitution Study and developing an online study for everyone to enjoy. All this while writing web articles, podcasting and answering questions at http://constitutionstudy.com
Paul now lives on a farm in the Nashville, TN area with his wife of over 30 years and a variety of animals. You can contact him at email@example.com
