My name’s Jesse Lambertson and I live on this spinning planet called Earth with you my fellow readers. I like to read, visit libraries and ride my bicycle. Right now, I live in Chicago. Occasionally, I like to share my observations about theology, the Bible, culture, and library-related topics (Disclaimer: All my opinions are all my own, not my employer’s). I make no promises about the ratio of topic-to-topic. But between this site, LibraryThing, and my nascent GAB and MeWe accounts, many subjects (please take a look at the section listed on the right of the posts: ‘What it’s all about’) will be touched.

The site title, Phantom Landscapes, connects the grasping for things that are in the future or the past, those intangible abstractions we all know exist and features in the world to which we must adapt because we don’t control them. Sometimes, it is not even about adaptation as it is to submit in humility to the creator of the universe, the Lord Jesus Christ. I like to draw connections between all these things because every major question that can be asked has something theological about it.

Life is hard sometimes, but my hope is that my efforts on this site will point to the Lord Jesus and give glory to God. Thank you for reading.
