I’m a “good ole boy”, born and raised in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, by the grace of God as we say down here. I moved across the line into Tennessee in search of a little “elbow room” after marrying the love of my life. We have raised two children in the Southern traditions of following Jesus Christ in faithfulness to His Church, loving our neighbors, living by a code of honor, being well mannered, and practicing stewardship of the land and all that lives on it. In our journey, as I was asked to teach in a local church, I was very disappointed at the lack of theological knowledge and apologetic readiness in a region which takes a great deal of pride in our Christian heritage. With a plain spoken, southern style logic, I intend to change that…by the grace of God.
