Sam is Associate Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Messiah College, in Grantham, PA, USA. His views are not necessarily those of Messiah College, or of his home church, Mechanicsburg Brethren in Christ, Mechanicsburg, PA. He and his wife live in the Harrisburg, PA area with their four children. He likes to dabble in theology and philosophy, but is primarily interested in what is called orthopraxis, correct Christian living. His interest in orthodoxy, correct belief and theology, is grounded in how this theology is lived out in practice in his life, and that of the body of those who belong to Christ. Issues of justice and orphan care are close to his heart.
