R. L. Solberg is an author, theologian, and apologist based in Nashville, TN where he lives with his wife of 28 years, Debra, and a big German Shepherd named Thor. They are stakeholders at the Church of the City (Spring Hill, TN) and have two spectacular daughters who are out making their mark on the world.
Solberg has been pursuing theology, apologetics, and philosophy formally and informally for more than two decades. He studied at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Theological Studies at Williamson College in Nashville, TN. He is also studying Biblical Hebrew at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Solberg strives to communicate on complex topics with clarity and grace, bringing a creative perspective to the conversation.
In November 2019, Solberg’s first book was released, Torahism: Are Christians Required to Keep the Law of Moses? Since then, he has appeared on numerous podcasts and radio shows to discuss his book and the rise of movements within Christianity that are teaching a return to keeping the Torah. He is currently working on a follow-up book that directly addressed the Hebrew Roots Movement. Solberg has also just recently launched a YouTube Channel where he has begun posting videos on some of these same topics.
“I believe that all people are of equal value to God, but all ideas are not. My blog is where I test ideas, worldviews, claims, concepts, and theories and see how they hold up to reality and to Scripture. Among my many posts, you’ll mostly find musings on theology, philosophy, apologetics, and worldviews. But I also touch on other topics as I feel inspired, including music, poetry, and (to a decreasing degree) politics. I’ve also been very involved in an incredible ministry called Celebrate Recovery since 2010, so you’ll find some posts on finding freedom from our hurts, habits, and hangups here, as well. I love deep conversations. Especially with people who have different views than I do. If you have something to contribute to the discussion, I would love to hear from you.” -R. L. Solberg
