Introduction

Warning: This is not a pretty website! As the material contained on this website has dictated, I have not employed such novelties as Java script or Flash content or frames, nor fancy backgrounds or any other graphics. This is one of those fiendish websites that is anathema to the 30-second attention span of the generation raised on watching television sitcoms and think the world's problems can be solved in 19½-minutes, minus commercials. In short, the content of this website was intended to be read by the literate, and printable without demanding all your printer's ink.

The purpose of this website is basically to serve as a platform whereupon I can publish the articles and studies that I have personally researched and authored on a variety of Christian subjects and issues, most of them apologetic in nature (the term "apologetic" as it is being used here means "that branch of theology that is concerned with defending the truth of Christian doctrines," or more loosely "a formal argument in defense" of something). Since I have over the years researched and authored volumes of exegetic and apologetic articles, I decided it might be beneficial if I publish this material within the public domain; beneficial for a couple of reasons:

(a) it holds me accountable by subjecting the results of my research to third-party criticism
(b) it allows others to potentially find education and edification from the material I have produced
(c) allows me to access this material from anywhere in the world when I am away from home
If you are wondering what that Latin is in English, it basically means: "By grace alone, through faith alone... scripture alone, all of scripture... Christ alone, to the glory of God alone." More information on that here.
