In 2001, he earned his Ph.D. in History at Mississippi State University.

Genesis: The Explanation
by T. Adams Upchurch
With the perspective of a historian rather than a theologian the author, a tenured Professor of History in the University System of Georgia, brings his critical thinking skills to a general audience. Dr. Upchurch identifies the four corners of a puzzle: (1) the Genesis creation story, (2) the secular theory of biological evolution, (3) the ancient pagan mythology, and (4) the modern theories about extraterrestrial intelligence. Starting with the four corners, he creates a word picture by combining biblical, scientific, historical and parapsychological knowledge. Although difficult for one person to get each and every detail exactly the perfect color and shape that would please each critical eye, Dr. Upchurch brings fresh colors and shapes to the discussion of the mystery of existence.
