Kyle West began a relationship with Dr. James Dobson at the tender age of seven when he attended a Focus on the Family picnic with his parents, when his father, Bob, was an employee at the ministry. Kyle, who was born with cerebral palsy, caught Dr. Dobson’s attention, and struck up a precocious conversation which led Dr. Dobson to invite him onto his radio program. Kyle was interviewed again by Dr. Dobson in the early days of Family Talk. He went on to receive his undergraduate degree from Patrick Henry College and his master’s degree in the classics at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Kyle then went on to receive his Ph.D., also in the classics, at the University of Pennsylvania. He is now teaching Greek Mythology at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia.
