My family went to church every Sunday and on Wednesdays when I was growing up, my parents taught at Christian schools and I attended a Christian school for elementary school. But after my parents got divorced, my whole family drifted away from the faith. For years, though, I was very concerned to figure out the meaning of physical death, and I could not find any. I returned to Christianity through Young Life in high school, but I still had a lot of unanswered questions. Besides the meaning of physical death, I was very concerned to figure out why people are expected to know God if they have never read the Bible. I studied philosophy, history, and religious studies in college, and eventually came upon answers to my questions. I came to see that there were sound arguments that could stand as an anchor for my faith.
