“…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).

One of my favorite quotes is, “Wonder is the beginning of wisdom in learning from books as well as from nature” (Mortimer J. Adler and Charles van Doren, How to Read a Book).

My name is Drew Mery. I am a member of Grace Bible Church of Brandon, FL and a graduate student of Humanities at American Public University (based on the Great Books tradition). My Bachelor’s degree was 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 I wanted to be a Renaissance man. I also said I wanted to be strong like Arnold Schwarzenegger. That last one isn’t working out so well.
