About Me

First and foremost I am a husband and a father. I am not a part of any religious institution or denomination considering myself spiritual but not religious. I was raised as a Christian (SDA) and still consider Christianity as the foundation for my spirituality and the language I speak to communicate my beliefs. I believe truth, connection, and purpose can be found in all religions (but not exclusive to religion) and I hope to dig out these gems and share what I've discovered. Comparative Religious Studies is my hobby whenever I can squeeze it into my busy day as a Mr. Mom. I recently graduated from MTSU in May 2010 with a B.S. in Audio Engineering while minoring in Religious Studies. I welcome open dialog from all walks of life. Just drop me a line in the blue comment box to the right and let's have a conversation.

I am also interested in the study of very early christianity. I am currently reading, Walter Bauer's _Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity_. I have studied the topic for almost 20 years now. I have read a number of other of the great works on this topic like Strauss, Schweitzer, and many many others, but this is my current read.

I am always interested in meeting others that are interested in the study of earliest christianity and you can contact me by email at RichGriese@gmail.com

Do you have specific aspect of the study that interest you, that you might be interested in discussing, and perhaps having on going discussions on the topic in general? Feel free to email me to talk about it.

My main interest is the very earliest period. Perhaps from the modified Messiah idea that may have begun around the time of the Maccabean revolt through the beginnings of christianity itself, till the Council of Nicea in 325CE, and perhaps a few years after that as some of the results of that council took effect.

On my main site I don't post my christian history posts, since most people have no interest in christian history, so I try to make my main site more of a general purpose one. But I do post on christian history topics, and collect resources and links that others interested in the subject may find useful. I am happy to share these with folks that are interested in that kind of thing.

Cheers!
