He enjoys reading, writing, acting, and watching movies in his spare time.

Chris’ master’s degree is in Theological Studies and his focus is on apologetics. In this thesis work, he focused on the question of the whether Jesus of Nazareth was a historical person? This involved looking at questions such as do miracle stories make the Gospels unreliable? Do we know who the New Testament authors were? Why are they contradictions in the Gospels? Did the Gospels make up people and places? Were the New Testament stories simply copied from the Old Testament? And was the story of Jesus plagiarized from old pagan myths?
