My name is Steven Dunn and I am a 24 year old philosophy student from Tampa, Florida. I currently possess two degrees, one in Philosophy (with an emphasis in religion) and the other in Physics. My dream is to attend Black Friars College in Oxford, London to eventually pursue a teaching degree in philosophy.
Aside from my academics, I have also obtained six professional wine certifications. I have two Sommelier Level I Certifications, two Level II Sommelier Certifications, my Certified Wine Educator (C.W.E.) by the Society of Wine Educators (S.W.E), and recently my Spanish Wine Specialist (S.W.S) certification by the North American Sommelier Assocation (N.A.SA). I practiced wine service at the world famous Columbia Restaurant for 3 years with a wine list of over 1,250 different selections and was Assistant Sommelier at Bern’s Steakhouse – the world’s largest privately owned wine collection.
I started Hellenistic Christendom in the fall of 2012 to finally get all of my ideas in a preliminary and explanatory way for Christians to use and possibly take away from as insight for their walk in the faith.
The Gospel and articulating that message for not only unbelievers but for believers as well is the passion that drives what I do and intend for this blog. Through various subjects that I think you’ll enjoy through this blog (epistemology, apologetics, marriage, and even ontological arguments) I hope to equip and get believers asking the right questions about their faith.
I am also an administrator for the apologetics ministry Capturing Christianity and its affiliates: Capturing Christianity (Facebook page), Capturing Christianity Discussion Group (Facebook), Reason and Religion (Facebook), Capturing Christianity Fellowship (Facebook). If you wish to contact me, you can contact my Facebook page Hellenistic Christendom.
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God. (1 Peter 18-21, NIV)
