Favorite CD: U2 - The Unforgettable Fire.
Favorite book: Mere Christianity by CS Lewis.
Favorite places to visit on the web: thegospelcoalition.org & exploregod.com
Favorite pastime: I like to be with my family and friends. It matters less what I'm doing than who I'm with (as long as there's coffee).
Favorite place to travel: I enjoy the trip at least as much as the location. I like long drives and international flights. I also love history. I think my ideal vacation would be bumming around the UK with my family (as long as there's lots of coffee).
Favorite heroes of the faith: Dan DeHaan for imparting to me a love for the Scripture. John Piper for igniting in me a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples. Charlie Wenzel (my Greek professor at Columbia) for being the most compelling model of a life fully devoted to Jesus Christ that I have ever seen.
