Welcome! I’m the thinkist, thinking on things true, good, and beautiful in the areas of theology, philosophy, and apologetcs (cf. Phil. 4:8). I recognize that the definite article before thinkist may sound a bit pretentious. I would have simply gone with thinkist if the site wasn’t taken already, and a thinkist just doesn’t sound interesting. So, I beg your pardon as I refer to myself as the thinkist. You may call me Drew, though.
I have a BS in Religion: Biblical Studies from Liberty University (2010). I am currently working on a MA in Humanities (based on the Great Books program) from American Public University.
