Who Writes This?

Hi, I’m Chris. I’m a Christian, husband to Karyn, dad to three kids under 6, and step-dad to a fourth. I worship and serve at North Pine Baptist Church in Brisbane, Australia. I’m an ESTJ, I prefer my coffee without milk or sugar (especially while I’m writing), I enjoy all things Marvel, I hold an M.Div (major in Biblical Studies) from Tabor College, and I read a lot. I preach occasionally, and I facilitate a reading group for Christians who love to learn from dead theologians.

I set up shortly after beginning my studies as an outlet for all the things that I was learning; mostly to save my wife from the pain of having to listen to every new thing I came home from class excited about that week. It’s gradually evolved into a place that includes posts about all manner of thoughts on life and culture from a Christian worldview, plus reviews of the books that I’ve loved in the hope that they might aid in guiding other Christians towards interesting, quality reading.

If you’ve got questions, have a book you’d like reviewed, or just want to get in touch with me, use the social media buttons on the site to connect with me or drop me a line. I try my best to reply to every tweet, post, and email, in time.

A Couple of Other Things is a participant in the Book Depository affiliate program; so if you click through and buy any of the books that I’ve mentioned, I get a small cut to help out with the costs of maintaining the site. It’s a win-win!
