MATTHEW ROLAND is the pseudonym of Matthew Starkey. Born in a dirty, ramshackle town in Northern California, he possesses an ardent regard for story and any form of writing—whether that be fiction or nonfiction. His further obsessions are ancient, archaic words that nobody uses anymore, reading liberal amounts of Tolkien when he can find the time, and searching for the perfect hat.

For the Church to Flourish, it Must Return to Sound Doctrine, Pt. 2: Radical Depravity

In an age where ‘acceptance’ and ‘tolerance’ are lauded as the superior virtues, and holding fast to conviction and Biblical truth is deemed divisive and priggish, the vast majority of pastors and teachers in the American church, have lost their spine, and only proclaim that which is acceptable to the ears of fallen men.

Jonathan Edwards by Iain H. Murray
" Ask the average American for a brief description of Jonathan Edwards, and, if you get anything more than a shrug or a blank stare, it will most likely be a caricature of a stolid Puritan unable to muster up emotion for anything but the fire-and-brim" Read more of this review »

“With one considerate word, you could give someone hope. Or with one careless word, you could destroy hope.”
Matthew Roland

“Be the change that illuminates the lives of others. Be the change that causes others to follow behind you in your footsteps. Be the “somebody” that starts. One person stepping forward to do what is right, because it is right, can change the world. For if nobody starts, who then can follow?”
Matthew Roland

“There is Wrong and Right: there is no in-between. Surentûr changes history to fit his own scheme, casting shadows over the Light and enlightening the deeds of the Dark. But they were never the same.”
Matthew Roland, Intriguing Inceptions: Essays in Fantasy & Science Fiction

“Open discussions of political and social issues are key to healthy unity. Society works very much like a marriage in the sense that open communication facilitates harmony. In almost all marriages that end in divorce, there is a serious breakdown in communication.”
Ben Carson, One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future

“With one considerate word, you could give someone hope. Or with one careless word, you could destroy hope.”
Matthew Roland

“Never laugh at live dragons.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
