Welcome to The Clear-Thinking Christian!

I’ve been a practicing Christian for 30 years, and I’ve been teaching Christian theology, apologetics, and counter-cult ministry for 23 of those 30 years.  In that time, I’ve developed a growing concern that relatively few Christians think carefully about what they believe and why they believe it, and even fewer are prepared to present a basic description of what they believe or a basic defense of why they believe it.  For a 60-year-old deacon, this is perhaps a weakness — but for a graduating high school senior headed to a secular university, this is potentially devastating.  Regardless, every Christian would be well-served (and obedient) by being able to describe what they believe, articulate basically why they believe it, and — most importantly — constantly think clearly about their beliefs.

This blog is my feeble, humble attempt to help.  I’ll present a number of thoughts, studies, book reviews, cultural commentary, and other concepts — feel free to chime in, challenge me, voice your support, or ask a question.  Thanks!
