I am a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary with a Masters of Arts in Theology focusing on Church History. I am a Third Order Benedictine monk, in the Company of Jesus. I am married to a wonderful woman, we just had a baby Michaela Rose. You can follow me and be altered of new blog post by following me on Twitter @jtalexanderiv
This blog is mainly an area where I can post my musings about my life, studies, ideas, Third Order monasticism, early church history, historical theology, and all sorts of other things I am care about.
I love the saints of God (I love the Triune God more), but I believe the saints give us a unique view of God. I think of the saints as a prism, they take in the pure Light and they reflect to us the many different aspects of God. They also show us what a life devoted to God can look like. I take comfort in the fact that they were ordinary people like you and me, but they did great things and led great lives with God’s help. So in this blog I hope to sometime pass on the wisdom and understanding that I get from reading about and from the saints.
