He responds to the term “Kuyperian,” is deeply appreciative of Tim Keller and Father Robert Sirico, and has read more systematic theology than any human should ever read. His late father, Dr. Greg Bahnsen, was a renowned Christian apologist and David’s personal hero and mentor.

His ultimate passions are his lovely wife of 20+ years, Joleen, their gorgeous and brilliant children, sons Mitchell and Graham and daughter Sadie, and the life they’ve created together on both coasts.
