I received myBachelor of Arts in Religion from Luther Rice University in 2009 and am recently completed a Master’s in Apologetics there as well. I am also associated with Free Grace Seminary, where I teach courses in apologetics and ethics.
I have spent the last fifteen years in formal and informal biblical studies. Since I have always been primarily concerned with proper exegesis (the study of the Bible in its historical and grammatical context), over three of those years have focused on Greek and Hebrew. Understanding Christianity rationally, that is, knowing why it is true, has always been a major issue as well. Therefore, I’ve spent several years studying philosophy, especially the concepts of God and Being as understood by Thomas Aquinas. The nature of public debate has forced me to spend a significant amount of time studying ethics as well, particularly as it relates to social policy (i.e., abortion, marriage, etc.).
I married Gretchen Keel in December 2008, and our daughter, Eliana, was born in November 2009. Next to my salvation, they are the greatest gifts God has ever given me, and through them, I can honestly say I have learned more about His grace than any amount of study could have ever taught me. Thank you, Gretchen, for all you’ve done for me!
The purpose of this blog is to answer your questions. Whether formally or informally, I have been teaching Christians and non-Christians for over a decade. While I certainly don’t have all the answers, I have been asked thousands of questions over the years, some from dedicated believers and many from dedicated atheists, and so have had the opportunity to study widely. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll acknowledge it and find it!
Be sure to subscribe to the blog, as we will be updating very frequently. We post a daily word study and will very frequently look at difficult passages, and that in addition to answering your questions. If you do have a question, you can submit it on the “Ask A Question” page or by emailing me at:
