I had not seen Frank in almost three months. He had just flown in to give three speeches at Summit Ministries. I knew I would see him the next day but not that night. Not at that very moment. Mark was thrilled when I wrote back and told him who had just come to see me.
I guess it could all be a coincidence. And I guess a monkey could sit down at a keyboard and type the words to The Merchant of Venice. Stranger things have happened. Like the spontaneous generation of DNA molecules. Sorry but that little monkey just stepped on my sarcasm key.
The year that I made an intellectual decision to follow Christ was a good year indeed. The works of intellectuals like Norm Geisler (specifically Christian Apologetics) and J.P. Moreland (specifically Scaling the Secular City) were indispensible. When I read their books I had no idea that I would be joining them on the faculty of Summit Ministries in less than a decade. It is still too much for me to comprehend.
I’m glad I spent that year reading and forming a strong intellectual basis for my beliefs. If you do the same, you’ll benefit, too. And so will others when you help show them the pathway that leads toward the Truth.
