My name is Roger Prather. I am a husband, father, and Christian. I’ve been writing since the age of 9 and since my teen years, I’ve felt a call to ministry.
I’ve spent most of my adult life working as a sworn law enforcement officer — and running away from that call to ministry. But in 2018, due to overwhelming evidence of God’s calling, I capitulated and dedicated myself to submit to his will.
I’m currently enrolled as a graduate student at Liberty University in the field of Christian Apologetics (anticipated graduation in Winter 2019). I chose this particular theological field for a number of reasons. For one, Apologetics is by necessity interdisciplinary and I enjoy reading and studying in a wide range of topics. Apologetics allows me to continue my broad reading and writing interests with a focus on how those interests can be applied to spreading the Gospel.
But my primary reason for choosing apologetics is what I perceive as a need in my home denomination of Seventh-day Adventist.
Beyond my current graduate studies, I have no plans except to continue following God’s lead. That probably means further study and it certainly involves some form of ministry.
This website is the beginning of that ministry, what for now I’m calling Rational Remnant. It also happens to serve as a creative outlet for my writing, but with a purpose.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you’ll continue to join me in this journey.
