The Merger began as one thing – a place to tell great stories from the Bible. We wanted to show each of our readers how the great stories in Scripture highlight the intersection where life and faith meet. Over the course of several long-form chapters, we hopefully demonstrated that God’s plan was always put in place on purpose, executed with precision, and fulfilled with beautiful harmony.

Today, it’s grown beyond that original design. Now, the Merger is a place where you can still find those stories and deep study, but also a few daily blogs devoted to different parts of Bible study, theology, and even practical faith. We even plan to launch a podcast called Running with Giants in the next few months. 

This is a project born out of the working relationship of Neal Mathis, Pulpit Minister at the Tompkinsville Church of Christ in Tompkinsville, Kentucky, and Matthew Higginbotham. The eventual plan is to incorporate many talented writers and develop a large library of Biblical studies and the messages that come from

We’ve now incorporated several blogs and sermon design help, inspiration, and instruction as well. If you have questions or would like to potentially write for us, please feel free to contact us.
