Jordan Thyer grew up in the Perth hills and spent most of his time outdoors with his three brothers and playing sports with mates. Seeing genuine Christian faith displayed in his parents helped Jordan recognise that Christianity was good but the question came later if it was exclusively true. While studying chemical engineering at university he wanted to determine whether Christianity was intellectually credible. The outcome of his subsequent investigation was that Christianity was not only credible but gave satisfying answers to our deepest questions in life. Jordan worked as an engineer before moving to the UK to study at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA). He worked as a youth minister while completing an MDiv at Trinity Theological College in Perth, Australia. Jordan is married to Rachel and loves sport, dogs, knowing Jesus and making him known.

Is it still reasonable for thinking people to believe in God in light of modern science and does it matter even matter?
