I write and speak primarily about scripture and nature. I find them fascinating and enjoyable, and they are the two greatest treasure chests of evidence about God. Following evidence is the best way to find truth. The truth about God is worth pursuing because, if God is real, He must be the most important and relevant reality in existence.
Someone once asked me a most profound question: If you could know for sure whether what you believe about God is true, would you want to know? After some difficult self-examination, my answer to that question became Yes.
I am now committed to cultivating a love of truth, pursuing the highest truth, building evidence-based beliefs, and ditching dogmatism — and encouraging and equipping others to do the same. Do you want to know the truth, whatever it is, or do you want to remain in the comfort of your belief, whether or not it’s true?
My chief interests are scripture and nature because — properly understood — they reveal the truth about God, which is of utmost significance. If God is real, He must be the most important and relevant reality in existence.
My background includes work as a church planter and an intelligence analyst, mostly in an overlapping role as a criminal investigator. Currently based in the Pacific Northwest, I enjoy nature photography, snow, tea, learning, and being part of the best family in the world.
