I’m Wes Brzozowski, and I’ve studied the Bible and its background for over 40 years. A disclaimer: my formal degrees are in engineering. I’m not academically credentialed in any area of Biblical studies, though I’m a very enthusiastic amateur. You may have a friend who’s memorized all the sports statistics, or one who knows about every character in every Sci Fi movie. Think of me as your friend, the Bible geek.
That’s not to say that I (or anyone!) can match the sports or Sci Fi enthusiasts for recall of details. While I love learning all the details on the Bible, I seem a bit behind in applying its lessons to my life. I stumble. I pray. I thank the Lord for His patience. I repeat the cycle. God and I seem to be in a race to see if I can use up His grace faster than He can create it. He’s winning handily, but then, He’s God, and I’m not.
I’m also the guy who’ll read the history textbooks that you may find dry and uninteresting, and who can give you all the “fun parts.” I’ll read the “dull stuff,” so you don’t have to.
As I mention this, I also ask you to occasionally spot check some of the things you see on this site. I double-check everything too, but I am a fallible human, while you are a valued second set of eyes. None of the info here is classified; it’s all out there and widely available. Even though it tends to be rarely mentioned in our sermons or Sunday schools, it’s easy to find if you know to look for it. It seems that there are many interesting things to learn about but some just get overlooked. You probably find your own private study of the Bible to be wonderfully enriching. I’ve found that the more I learn about the amazing people and places inside the Bible, the more vivid my reading becomes.
This site is my gift to you, with hopes that it’ll help you in the same way. Please, use the “Contact Us” form if you have suggestions, ideas for a post, or criticisms. (And please be kind. That’ll be your gift to me…)
You’ll find very little here that advocates particular doctrines, other than the certainty that the Bible is God’s Word, and that our salvation is through the blood of Christ. Beyond these, I’ll make every effort to point out where there are controversies in those very rare cases where a doctrinal matter might manage to come up. I’ll do my best to give everyone’s interpretations a fair shake.
While I’ve done a reasonable bit of reading over the decades and think I may have something to share, there’s another way you can help make this site even better. You’ll notice a special selection above to notify me if you find an error in this site. This is different from the regular “Contact Us” page, and I’d really appreciate it if you could use it to help me correct any error you may find. In the end, I’ll have to make the decision as to what does and does not constitute an error, but I suspect that most visitors will find me very accommodating.
That’s important, because unless this site becomes as good as we can make it, it won’t be able to fulfill its “secret plan.” That plan is freely revealed here only to those interested enough to read to the very bottom of the “Long Answer” for this page. The real purpose of this site is to make reading the Bible more interesting to every visitor here. If they find it more interesting, they’ll do more of it. And if they read more of God’s Word, well, that’s just gotta change some lives. Shhhhh…
I think it’s a good plan, and that it can go far. With your ideas and your prayers, it can go much, much farther. Please feel welcome to visit often & don’t forget to tell your friends.
