…thinking God’s thoughts after Him.

Johannes Kepler

This site consists of biblical, theological, philosophical, political, and scientific content of varying degrees — a holistic (or comprehensive) approach to the Christian faith and life, as all truth is God’s truth and God speaks to all areas of life. The aim is the edification of Christ’s Church, the salvation of lost souls, the promotion of culture through truth, goodness, and beauty, and the praise of God — the glorious splendor of His majesty and His wondrous works (Ps. 145:5).

Wonder is the beginning of wisdom in learning from books as well as from nature.

Adler and van Doren, How to Read a Book

My name is Drew Mery. I am a member of a local church and a graduate student in Humanities at American Public University (based on the Great Books program). I am simultaneously working on a certificate in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. My Bachelor’s degree is in Religion: Biblical Studies from Liberty University (2010). The Lord has blessed me with several mission trips around the world (2007, 2009, 2013) where I’ve had the privilege of evangelizing and teaching God’s word. Professionally, I have over 8 years of experience in the data analytics industry using Excel, SQL, Power BI, Tableau, and to some extent, Python and R. My varied interests go all the way back to my teenage years when I told myself that I want to be a Renaissance man. I also said that I want to be strong like Arnold Schwarzenegger. That last one isn’t working out so well.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8
