Jordan and daughter no 1, 2006

I am a Christian. Depending what you mean, you could call me Evangelical, Reformed, Conservative… I’ve been called other names too.

I am married, with two daughters, and I live in Cape Town, South Africa.

I completed my Bachelor of Theology in 2005 at George Whitefield College near Cape Town. For three years thereafter, I worked full-time with students as a campus pastor of sorts, at student-y.org.

I have since been invited to join my alma mater on a scholarship to do postgraduate study and some lecturing (mostly in NT Greek and Old Testament subjects). You can read more about the college at www.gwc.ac.za.

I hope one day to publish something that people will read. Right now I’ve got a PhD in biblical studies to do.

I am ignorant about too much, but I still like to engage in some armchair commentary in the realm of politics and philosophy.

You can get hold of me on Twitter @JordanLongwind. I can sometimes find something to say in 140 characters or less.

You can also read me in a vitriolic mood over on ungenius.wordpress.com.

    Hey Jordan,
    When The Shack was originally submitted, it espoused universal reconciliation, the heresy that Christ’s death means all people are going to heaven. James De Young has a pdf essay online. He is a seminary professor and friend of the author.

    Young is a Christian universalist. I am including my article, ttp://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/index.php?p=1065&c=1

    My blog is wordlikefire.wordpress.com which I have just put up and don’t know what I am doing.

    I’m confused are you really a Theist or plain Christian apologetic who likes debating against atheist to defend the faith of God and Jesus?

      Hello. I’m not too sure what you’re asking. I’m a Christian teacher of the Old Testament who loves atheists. So I find myself writing with skeptics in mind a lot of the time.

    Hi Jordan, just discovered your blog via your posts on Hume and miracles. Found it gracious and helpful (I’m having other discussions on this at the moment). Cheers, Peter.
