About Ben Mines
I was born in Wellington, graduated from college in Auckland, and then spent almost two decades living in South Korea. Until the age of 35, I was what Andrew Klavan called a “practicing atheist”: I did not know if there was a God but I lived my life on the assumption that there was not. However, in 2015 I began to study the philosophical arguments for the existence of God and the historical argument for the Resurrection of Jesus. Ultimately, I was persuaded by both. The existence of God is a subject of the profoundest imaginable importance. I am therefore committed to discussing it with others. In 2017, I finished my book "Through a Glass, Darkly" which sets out the rational grounds for Christian theism; later that same year, I began to write for Thinking Matters.

Thinking Matters is a ministry encouraging New Zealand Christians to explore WHAT they believe and WHY they believe it, so they can engage culture and present the Christian faith both gracefully and persuasively.
We do this through training in apologetics, worldview, culture, and evangelism.
