Nathan Rinne is a Lutheran (LCMS) layman whose greatest earthly joy is his family, made up of his wife Sheila and five fantastic boys under the age of eleven. His theological interests span Church history, ecclesiology, and apologetics — particularly the connection between theology and philosophy. Having earned his undergraduate degree in the natural sciences and later degrees in the humanities and theology, Nathan is a “big-picture” guy who might occasionally struggle to focus. He earned his Masters of Theological Studies degree from Concordia Theological Seminary in St. Catharines, Ontario, and teaches beginning theology courses as an adjunct professor at Concordia University, St. Paul. He also has a curious affection for official Library of Congress Subject Headings. His blog is Theology Like A Child.
