I am a Christ follower, husband, father, and teacher. As you probably noticed, I am a big fan of all things Lewis and Tolkien. To be candid, I think they were two of the most important writers, not only of the twentieth century, but in our brief history here on Earth.

What you’ll find here:

  • Literary and Film Analysis: This will be the main emphasis of the site. From poetry and prose to classic or contemporary films, these works of art have much to say about human nature, our values as a society, history, and so, so much more.
  • The World of an English Teacher: And what a world it is.
  • Theology & Application: As Abraham Kuyper said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!” Simply put, all things are subject to King Jesus, even our stories. It’s impossible to avoid this truth. Therefore, although I’ll certainly do this imperfectly, I want to do my best to think the Lord’s thought after him, and walk in his ways.

My hope is that, as you come ashore to my site, you find a home in the ideas and values that are emphasized here.

Now, to quote Lewis, “Further up and further in!”
