Do you hunger for God? To know him more and his Word, but are overwhelmed by the huge amount of study materials out there?

Are you longing for the Bible to become more personal to you? To find in your study the balance between the theoretical and practical, between the scholarly and personal? The balance between truth and grace?

Swordsman of the Word is a blog about God and the Bible, but it is much more than that. This is also my own journey towards knowing God more through his Word, and towards understanding and changing my own life — and the world around me — in the light of that Word.

This is an invitation for you to join me in my journey.

My name is Arjay B. Araña. I’m a Filipino, single, and a born-again Christian.

I’m a member of a conservative evangelical church here in the Philippines. I am called by God to be a teacher and a missionary, and I’m presently attending a Bible school.

This blog is part of my works for the ministry, both in Christian education and the missions. It is solely dedicated to my personal essays and reflections — and its purposes are (1) to help you know God more, through his Word and through my own life, and (2) to share with you my passion and burden as a missionary of the gospel.
