I was recently appointed to my local Library Board. Most people on the internet probably think of a local library as a smelly old place with computers running windows XP and no understanding of the internet. Thankfully my local library isn’t like that – well they do have XP machines… My local library, and hopefully… Read More


When I saw this book was about to be released I was excited. I thought “cool, a tech book from an exec at a leading tech company!” I really had no expectations about content. You shouldn’t either. This book is pretty much the standard technological dream stuff. He describes a digital future which sounds about… Read More


I’ve noticed this week how 3D printing has been mentioned in news stories because a University of Texas student published plans for printing your own gun. In the story I linked to, the image from salon.com student (Cody Wilson) makes a statement that the issue is bigger than guns. I want to suggest he is… Read More


I was studying furiously for my NT comprehensive exam (which I passed!! hooray!), and realized I wanted to practice conjugating/parsing verbs. One great tool I found is this one. I found it through the greatest biblical language study website I’ve seen to date, The Institute of Biblical Greek. They have links to just about every… Read More

But far from calling out products for failing to innovate, or calling out companies for… Read More

Today, I thought I would show you the process of thought I go through to decide when and how to buy a book. 1. Is it available for free (legally)? Run a google search… Read More


I had the privilege to present a paper at the Southwest Region of the Evangelical Theological Society this year. The abstract is below, with a pdf link to the full paper. It is a technical paper, so be warned it is not bedside reading. This paper will attempt to prove that Zechariah 10:1-2 contains an… Read More


Borgmann is one of the few Philosophers of Technology writing from a Christian perspective, even though this book doesn’t read like the work of a conservative evangelical. By “technology,” Borgmann means “to designate not just an ensemble of machines and procedures, but a type of culture, that kind that is characteristic of the advanced industrial… Read More


I had the privilege of attending a lecture at SWBTS (where I am a Ph.D Student in Old Testament), where Bruce Zuckerman discussed recent developments in imaging technology and how those developments aided Dead Sea Scrolls research. You can find out more about Zuckerman here. This lecture was something I really wanted to talk about… Read More
