Meet Your Bloggers: Jake VanKersen

12 Oct

Jake VanKersen was born and raised in Muskegon, Michigan. It was there that he first fell in love with the cinema. He grew up watching Indiana Jones films, the original Star Wars Trilogy, Superman, Goonies, E.T., Ghostbusters, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Cinema taught him, among other things, that everything needs to have weight and significance to it. It was easy to reconcile his faith to my passion for film and story telling. He found that God is the original and best storyteller (among other things), which is evident in the Bible. If we try to use the Bible as a textbook it feels cold and impersonal. If we read it like a story, it can speak to us with rich lessons about the redemption work that God has done since day one. It is a deeply epic, personal, engaging, and Holy story about God. Along with writing articles for More Than One Lesson, Jake also writes for his own blog, My Internet Soap Box.
