About Brandon Durham

I love the sound of well-composed words, and especially words that ring true in the ears! For that reason, I love the Bible! God’s Word, in all of its glory, has a way of opening our eyes, causing our hearts to burn with wanting resonance. In a world of darkness, dissonance, and disbelief in God, Jesus sends out his disciples, armed with confidence that the truth of the gospel will conquer resistance, change lives, and, generally speaking, carry the day! To those great and exciting ends, I work to articulate crisp, gospel-centered rhyme and reason. “For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.” —Jesus, Luke 22:15
