Dan DeWitt: I'm a sketching, writing, thinking, coffee-drinking, husband, father, pastor, creative combatant, blessed with the opportunity to serve the faculty and students of Boyce College. The only really good thing about me is the gospel.
My wife, April, and I have three sons, the twins Isaiah and Micah, little Josiah, and our daughter Addilynn Joy. We enjoy hanging out together and chasing the legendary dragon that lives in the tunnels beneath Southern Seminary.
Book recommendation for the month: C.E.M. Joad’s “God and Evil.” Joad, as an agnostic, debated this book with C.S. Lewis at the Socratic Club and later converted to Christianity. Get a first edition print here.

Since childhood I've loved to sketch, and now, after much ado, as an adult, I no longer consider drawing to be childish. Ergo, I've decided to publish my sketchy views here. Enjoy.
