Esteemed in literary circles for his poetry and fiction, Andrew Lansdown is perhaps better appreciated in Christian circles for his essays and sermons. In this, his first collection of essays, he offers biblical and rational perspectives on a wide range of subjects of ongoing concern to Christians. His aim always is to "take every thought captive to obey Christ". Andrew has taught in various tertiary institutions and prisons, pastored two churches, and written and edited for a Christian ministry. In addition to ongoing writing and preaching, he currently lectures part-time in creative writing at Sheridan Institute of Higher Education.
