Tell us a little about yourself. I am a full time pastor of Springs Presbyterian Church in Dunnellon, FL and an adjunct professor in the science department of the College of Central Florida. I was raised as a church kid, but gave up on religion when in college. I majored in biology and eventually earned a Master of Science at the University of West Florida. At the age of 32, I became an evangelical Christian and graduated from Reformed theologian Seminary in 1993 with a Master of Divinity and then later a Doctor of Ministry. I have been married to my wife Lauri for 32 years and have 4 children and 8 grandchildren.
What was your motivation behind this project? Three years ago I found myself awakening most mornings with thoughts streaming through my mind. I began to write them down in a notebook. Eventually I was convicted the Lord was calling me to share those thoughts with other people. This is why I had the book published.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? 1. The Lord would be glorified. 2. People will understand that science and Christianity are not opposed to one another. 3. Christians (and other theists) will realize there are very good scientific reasons to believe in God. 4. Unbelievers will be challenged to consider the merits of Christianity.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My study and teaching of the natural and physical sciences has strengthened my faith in God, and at the same time, my faith in God has made me a better science instructor.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I studied under R.C. Sproul and Richard Pratt in seminary and have always benefited greatly from their teaching. I am also a fan of John Calvin, J.I. Packer, A.W. Tozier, Tim Keller, and others.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This is a great resource for those who are serious about witnessing to others who are a product of our secularized culture.
