My actual name is John Starke, not John Ploughman. John Ploughman is a reference to a book C. H. Spurgeon once wrote. My interests are Theology, Philosophy, the Bible, Music, Church History, and baseball. I am married to a beautiful woman named Jena who is widely famous for her cooking and baking skills. I am a father to Corinne, Owen, and Noelle. I work at The Gospel Coalition.
