I write about life and faith and what it means to be fully human and a fully devoted follower of Jesus.
For a long time I thought it was important to tie all of that up in a neat package, as if either life or faith weren’t complicated and a bit messy.
But they are. And the mystery of the good life can’t be untangled in a single blog post or even a single book. So not every post here solves a problem or offers helpful tips for this or that—though some do.
You’ll probably like this blog best if you’re a serious Christ follower looking for insight into current issues affecting the church and what it means to live like Jesus.
Some of My Most-Read Posts
My life has been a unique blend of local church ministry, writing, and publishing. I served as a pastor for nearly 20 years and have been writing for publication for over 25 years. For seven years, I was in-house editorial director at Wesleyan Publishing House where I oversaw all aspects of content creation for a busy publisher focused on the Christian market.
I am a graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M.Div.), where my studies were concentrated on the New Testament. I am now pursuing doctoral studies at the Anderson University School of Theology, a great program focused on Christian leadership in a postmodern world.
My wife, Heather, is a best-selling author, teacher, and the love of my life. We have a blended family of six children.
