About

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a member of a Southern Baptist church in Ohio, a Ken Hamrick 4-17husband to one wife of 30 years, and a father of two.

I’m a self-educated layman writing from a realist perspective, similar to what one finds in the Baptist, Augustus H. Strong.  As one who believes in the inerrancy of Scripture, I’m an uncompromising defender of a recent creation by divine fiat.  I affirm unconditional election, and my Baptist Centrism puts me right down the middle of the spectrum. My favorite theological works are mostly by 19th century Presbyterians, with the exception of Andrew Fuller, whose depth of insight has informed my view of free will and (in)ability.

I have posted articles on SBC Open Forum for a few years. I’ve decided to collect my best work here.
