Writing is his passion, and he also enjoys spending time with his family, reading three books at a time, playing basketball, playing NCAA Football on the Xbox, and working in his yard.

Micah’s influences include Randy Alcorn, whose book Heaven he counts as “the single most influential book [he has] ever read apart from the Bible itself;” John MacArthur, his former pastor at Grace Community Church; Robert Bauval; John Piper; Peggy Downing; and Ernest Hemingway. Micah puts his faith in the Bible as the ultimate authority on all issues pertaining to life and says, “It is only here in which our true purpose and belonging is found, through Christ’s work on the cross for our salvation.”

He is an avid reader, using his typical 30 hours of driving time per week to study philosophy, religion, biographies, and politics via his Audible audiobook account.

Among Garrett’s influences are C.S. Lewis, Donald Miller, Alistair Begg, Voddie Baucham, and Mark Driscoll. Regarding them Garrett says, “They are all fallible, imperfect men, but I count them all as brothers and have been encouraged and challenged at various times in my life by their books and sermons. The final authority on all questions of faith and life must be the Bible, and on its truth we must hang our hats and rest our hope.”

Mission

Our mission is to bring sound Biblical reasoning and apologetics to readers in a thought provoking, logical, and readable manner. We offer our thoughts on difficult subjects to increase our own understanding as much as the reader’s.

 


Worldview

We believe the Bible was written by the Creator of the universe and has absolute authority in our lives. We are not theologians or scholars, but our goal is to write thoughtful, readable content that will challenge Christians and non-Christians alike. We will engage the issues of our time, and will rise above the vitriol that seems to dominate discussion on the web.

We hold ourselves to the high standard of being grounded in a literal interpretation of the Bible, held by a moral code derived from the Scriptures, and accountable to the logical soundness of our arguments.
