Thanks for coming by! I’m Pierce, author of Finding God in the Ordinary, The Speaking Trinity & His Worded World, Struck Down but Not Destroyed, and Finding Hope in Hard Things. This is a meeting place for those who love the triune God and love reading words that promote biblical truth. It’s also a place where people who love the God of the Bible can come to be encouraged, inspired, and informed.
Writing is my passion and calling, and this website is a place where I’d like to share that with you. I aim to publish at least one new post per week. So, if you don’t want to miss anything, and if you’d like a copy of my FREE ebook (In Divine Company: Growing Closer to the God Who Speaks), enter your email below to receive updates. You can also follow me on Twitter @HibbsPierce and Facebook. And feel free to check out my Amazon author page.
I pray that the resources I can contribute here will serve the global church well and minister to you where you are. Happy reading!

I want my readers to know who I am. So, here’s a bit of my background. In short, I’m a husband, father, writer, teacher, and student (always). My wife, Christina, is an amazing blogger herself (check out her website HERE). We’re both creative types, seeking to encourage others with the truth and beauty in God’s word and world. We have three children (Isaac, Nora, and Heidi), who constantly remind me that fatherhood will teach me more about God than any theologian ever could.
I have a BA in Professional Writing from Elizabethtown College (2007), an MAR in Theological Studies from Westminster Theological Seminary (2010), and a ThM in Systematic Theology (2016) from the same institution. In 2019, I completed my MA TESOL degree from Biola University. (Yes, yes — maybe I’ve been a student for too long.)
I’ve been working at Westminster for several years, helping native and non-native English speaking students to improve their writing for the glory of God.
I LOVE books, anything having to do with the Trinity and the nature of language. Or contemporary poetry. Or literature. Or art. Okay, fine — I’ll read pretty much anything. My favorite activity is . . . you guessed it: writing! Writing enables me to discover, explore, and express. I can’t get enough of it.
That’s just a bit about who I am. Like many Christians, I’m constantly seeking to grow into the image of Christ (Rom. 8:29) in all the facets of my life. This website will, in the end, be something of a chronicle of my journey, a testament to the grace and beauty and compassion of God in my life. I hope that testament does something to grow your own faith.
Statement of Faith
I believe in the historic, apostolic, biblical Christian faith of the Reformed tradition as expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms. I believe that this faith is showcased most evidently in the writings of John Calvin and those of the Dutch Reformed tradition (Herman Bavinck, Abraham Kuyper, Geerhardus Vos, and Cornelius Van Til). I have a high view of Scripture as God’s inspired, infallible, and inerrant word. I hold steadfast to the conviction that this word is our fully authoritative, all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. To learn more on what I believe, I encourage readers to check out my books The Speaking Trinity and Finding God in the Ordinary.
