Staff Contributor

Cody Cook is a theology graduate student living near Cincinnati, Ohio who is bad at writing short bios about himself. After spending much of his youth as an atheist, he began putting Christianity’s claims to the test and slowly, methodically became a Christian. He still changes his mind slowly and likes to think he’s good at considering the wisdom in different perspectives.

In addition to articles for the Libertarian Christian Institute, he also writes and podcasts at cantus-firmus.com. He has written books about atonement theory, influential anti-Christians, and the intersection of biblical demonology and political philosophy.

Many of my heroes are people who pursued truth or goodness even at a great personal cost. E.g. – Corrie Ten Boom, Malcolm X, Athanasius of Alexander, Harriet Tubman, Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Fun Fact

I made conspiracy theory films in high school and one was even featured on Alex Jones’ website infowars.com. I have since moved on to greener pastures with less gay frogs.
