Kevin James

I met Jesus early in life. I spent most of my college days ignoring him, rejecting my parents’ faith and pursuing a work hard – play hard philosophy of life.

Although I was very successful and had many friends, I finally realized that this was not taking me where I wanted. I was not truly happy although I had a lot of (fleeting) good times. I began to pursue my own faith in Christ and that has made all the difference for me.

I have been asked if being an academic and being a Christian causes conflict. It doesn’t for me. I believe that God gave us brains because He wants us to think. I don’t believe He is threatened in the least bit by my/our pursuit of the truth. In fact, I think that God wants us to pursue the truth in all situations.
