Dr. Erik Strandness is a physician and Christian apologist who has practiced neonatal medicine for more than 20 years. He took an eight-year break from
rom medicine between 2009 and 2017 where he obtained a master's degree in theology, became a Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview and taught at a classical Christian school.
Erik has also written three Christian apologetic books. The first, The Director’s Cut, introduces a unique “bottom-up” approach to apologetics which frames the Christian worldview in a theatrical context. His second book, Cry of the Elephant Man, explores the significance of being created in God’s image as an explanation for human exceptionalism as well as powerful evidence for the existence of God. His third book, God Spoke, makes the case that our spiritual nature is the result of our hardwired human longing to rethink the thoughts of a God who has already spoken his mind, and that this truth forms the basis of a new postmodern apologetic.
He continues to practice neonatal medicine and engage in apologetics through speaking, writing, and blogging. He is passionate about helping Christians understand their faith so that they can effectively engage their critics as well as winsomely proclaim the Gospel to others with gentleness and respect. He currently lives in Spokane, Washington and is married with three children.
