Welcome to the blog.
I, Michael Patton, am the primary contributor to this blog. But you can also expect posts from my fellow bloggers Dan Wallace, Paul Copan, Lisa Robinson, and Robert Bowman Jr. Our blog is Evangelical and our purpose is content oriented. Hopefully we can write blogs that educate, update, and make people think deeply about historic and contemporary theological issues. You are welcome to contribute to our blog, but please be gracious and thoughtful. This is not anyone’s surrogate blog!
The skinny of my life:
I am Michael Patton, the primary contributor to the Parchment and Pen blog. I do a lot of stuff and love teaching theology. In fact, I have been blessed enough to be able to make my living doing so. I am married, have four kids (two girls and two boys). Got married to the most beautiful gal in the world 97, graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Th.M. (double major in New Testament and pastoral studies) in 2001, was on Pastoral staff at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco Texas from 2000-2006, started The Theology Program in 2001, incorporated Reclaiming the Mind Ministries in 2005, moved the family and ministry to Oklahoma City (area) in 2007, and the latest project is the Credo House (the Reclaiming the Mind Ministries headquarters and a theological education center).
