Hello, Scroll Eaters. I figure if you’re going read and follow a blog about reading the Bible through in a year, then it’s only fair that you know a little something about me – where I stand theologically and where I come from philosophically.
I am a Christian minister, ordained in the Southern Baptist Convention. I received my Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School of Samford University in 2005. I received my Bachelor of Science in Communication with a minor in English from Mississippi College in 2001. I have preached at numerous churches, been a youth minister at two churches, and gone on a handful of short term mission trips, one of which was international. I taught high school Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, Worldviews, Ethics, Apologetics, and jr. high English at a small private Christian school. My Hebrew and Greek are functional, but not spectacular. I am theologically conservative.
I’m a biblical inerrantist, meaning I believe the Bible is without error, and it’s teachings are normative, meaning what the Bible teaches is the norm for a correct life. To be very specific, I adhere to The Chicago Statement on Biblical Innerancy.
I’m a music fanatic with way too large a record collection. I read voraciously. I love basketball, but can’t play it any longer thanks to six surgeries on my tibia, fibula, and ankle. I adore chess, and am always up for a game. I’m a bit of a film nerd. I hold various financial licenses and work in the financial services field.
My name is Kyle.
