About the Blog...

This blog presents the findings of Christian origins research in a way that combines discernment, evangelism, faith, scholarship,
and spiritual development. The goal is to answer  N. T. Wright’s challenge, “For too long we have read scripture with nineteenth-century eyes and sixteenth-century questions. It’s time to get back to reading with first-century eyes and twenty-first-century questions.”

If I am capable of grasping God objectively, I do not believe, but precisely because I cannot do this I must believe.
— Søren Kierkegaard
