After a season in the financial industry, the author began to seriously consider a life of service to God. Upon the conclusion that this life calling appealed to more than whim, he began to pursue his graduate education. During this process he maintains a career, serves as an associate pastor in a local church, and looks for every opportunity to play ball with his young daughter. His interests are primarily theological, but include more peripheries than they exclude. After all, nothing brings more joy than discussing the connectivity of roses, Robespierre, and redemption.
