I am a husband to beautiful wife, an ordained minister in the Reformed Presbyterian Church – Hanover Presbytery, and founder of Sola – Appalachian Christian Retreat (www.discoversola.com).

In addition to blogging at this site I am the author of The Presbyterian Philosopher – The Authorized Biography of Gordon H. Clark (Wipf&Stock, 2017) and compiling editor of Clark and His Correspondents: Selected Letters of Gordon H. Clark (Trinity Foundation, 2017).

I hold a bachelor degree in mechanical engineering (University of Michigan), a master’s in business administration (Wake Forest University) and a master of divinity (Sangre de Cristo Seminary).

I’m an avid hiker, having completed a northbound thru-hike of the Appalachian trail in 2013 and the first 500 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016.

  2. Dear Doug,
    Could I speak to you at your leisure and my cost, personally? It would require a phone number. You can contact me privately at issachar.institute@gmail.com. Alternatively, you could phone me at 905-728-4052. If I am not home, just leave a voice mail with your number, and I will asap return the call.

    Hello Doug, I like to know when that biographical book on Gordon Clark is to be release. His life draws my attention.

    Hey Mr. Douma – like many before me, I am curious if the deal for Dr. Clark’s books is still available. I would love to begin reading his work.

    Hi Doug,
    Just a quick note for your possible 2nd edition of “The Presbyterian Philosopher.” On page 7 in two places there is the possessive proper noun ending in “s” and spelled Charles’s which I believe is incorrect and should be rendered Charles’. I caught this while reading again some of the delightful history of the Clark and Haddon family in your excellent biography.

    Dear Doug,

    It was good to hear you on Caffinated Thoughts Radio last week with Brian Myers and Pastor Mike Ericson. I am really anxious now to read your book and I would love to take you up on your offer of a signed copy and buy it from you directly. Please let me know how to do that. Thanks.

    I am sorry that we were not able to find any of the Clark correspondence with Dr. Young from Dr. Young’s papers in time for your publishing, but as you said in your interview your research continues and hopefully we can contribute something of value to it as you carry on.

    Warm regards,
    Vin Gebhart
