My name is Kyle. I’ve recently been accepted into a PhD program in Old Testament studies at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia). I have a M.Div. degree from Covenant Theological Seminary (St. Louis), B.A. degrees in History and French from Seattle Pacific University, and an A.A. degree in Arabic from the Defense Language Institute (Monterey). I have recently been elected for ordination as a teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church in America, and am applying for the Navy Reserve Chaplaincy. My interests include theology, apologetics, and science & faith.
Theologically, I’ve been all over the map. As an infant I was baptized Roman Catholic, then I was raised in a Foursquare church, then I attended a Free Methodist university, then I became an agnostic, then an atheist, and finally a Reformed evangelical Christian. Having always had a rather analytical mind, I am very familiar with the experience of doubt. Sometimes my doubts have led me astray (as during my three-year foray into agnosticism/atheism), but I have also found that doubt can be a powerful tool in shaping and strengthening one’s faith. The goal of my blog is to think critically about matters of faith, in order to bring myself and others into a more mature understanding of what it means to follow Christ.
