Tommy holds a BSc, an MBA and a law degree. He has been a secondary school teacher and a realtor, and for thirty-five years he was a corporate solicitor. Tommy's favourite undergrad course was a classical studies elective and it kickstarted a lifetime interest in ancient affairs. The Greeks. The Romans. The ancient Jews. And, of course, the early Christians.
Tommy does not read Greek or Latin and he does not hold himself out to be "biblical scholar." However, his science background makes him question magic and miracles. His MBA helps him see the eagerness of many ancients to make a buck. And his practice of law has given him a great donkey-dung sniffer. That sniffer did a lot of tingling when Tommy first read the Bible. These practical credentials have prompted Tommy to seek simpler explanations for the rise of Christianity.
