About Me

I am an enigmatic figure, often seen lifting weights and/or blasting beats. I have been known to rearrange bookshelves, making them less alphabetical and more aesthetic pleasing. I translate ancient manuscripts from the original Hebrew and Greek. I write semi interesting blog posts. I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I skip coffee three days in a row.

I fascinate children with my deft marimba playing. I can pilot small aircrafts with minimal supervision, and I enjoy a good sunburn. As a professional recording artist I specialize in New Age instrumental music. I am an expert in sarcasm, a veteran in landscaping, and an outlaw in Pigeon Forge.

Once, after falling asleep at the wheel, I did donuts on the interstate in the path of oncoming semis before continuing on to my destination. I play an 8 string guitar. I have preached on the streets of the Bronx, and I am undefeated in political elections. When I go to the beach, dolphins celebrate my arrival. I always finish my test first. On Tuesdays, after school, I consume large quantities of Buffalo Wild Wings.

I am an abstract sequential, a concrete random, and a recovering hypocondriac. Challies sometimes links to my blog. I have won giant stuffed animals at Sea World. My house smells of various Glade Air fresheners and I have many paperback books. I batted 1.000 for an entire season and completed an unassisted triple play. My aggressive driving skills have saved me more than 15% on car insurance. Parents trust me.

I dodge, I duck, I dip, I dive, and my bills are all paid on time. I always play last at recitals. I’ve been accused of smuggling drugs into Quebec and shoplifting in Spain. I’ve offended countless passengers on the Paris Metro and gorged myself on Argentine steak. I successfully messed with Texas. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but you’ll have to dig through my archives to find it.

  1. Thanks for the invite to interact more. I have been subscribed to your blog for probably half a year or more now. I too am a grad of DTS (’79) and blog at thimblefulloftheology.wordpress.com. Thanks for sharing all you have shared.

    • It’s nice to meet you Randall, I added your blog to my RSS and will look forward to reading from you more! Thanks for reading and stopping by to say hello. I see from your church website you’re in TN, how far are you from Knoxville?

  2. Pretty much on the other end of the state, Memphis. Collierville is just outside of Memphis. The church draws from Memphis, Germantown, Collierville, Olive Branch MS, and several other nearby towns. Enjoyed the post today about the theology of business book and I will get it as a possible use in our adult Sunday school.

  3. Hello,
    I tried contacting you yesterday and got a weird error message. So pardon me if I repeat myself. My name is Jonathan Roberts I am a Bible teacher in Portland Oregon at a small private Christian high school. This last summer as a part of my duties as Bible department chair I was tasked with creating a comprehensive Bible curriculum for our school. So I kind of created it from scratch. It is still a work in progress and far from completed. However, I have followed you on Twitter for sometime and the other day I clicked on your website’s contact me and saw that you taught several of the grade levels that I teach as well as teaching apologetics, which is my favorite class. So I was wondering if you would be willing to take a look at my curriculum and maybe let me have a peak at what you guys are doing as well. I would love to get some feedback on where you think my curriculum is lacking and maybe point me to some resources that would make it better.
    Thank you for your time and your many meaningful and helpful Tweets.

    • Jonathan,

      I’ll send you a fuller reply via email! It did come through (a couple times actually!) not sure why you’re getting an error message, but I’ve gotten duplicates from others so it might be a site issue.

      Nate

  4. Fantastic website, Nate. Loving what I’ve read so far.

  5. Hey Nate, great website! Well put together. I wanted to talk with you about a book I wrote to see if you might consider giving it a review. Do you have an email or contact I could touch base with you on? Mine is Tedwardsccc@gmail.com if that’s easier.

  6. Nate, I have been considering leading an elective study at my church on Christian habits. I ran across your post on reshaping Christian habits (2011). Do mind if I use some of your material from the blog?

    • Jeff,

      Sorry for the delay responding, but that’s fine. Just cite/source it well and you’re good to go!

      Nate

    You have one of the weirdest — and funniest — about me pages I’ve ever read. 🙂 I don’t know if you’re on Facebook (or if maybe you’re already hanging out there and I’ve failed to make the connection), but I think you’d fit in great around the: https://www.facebook.com/groups/reformedpub/
