Does Jesus follow us too?

posted by J-Walking

I like talking about myself as a follower of Jesus. I prefer that description to any other one in describing my faith. I like it because it describes the relationship pretty well: intimate but not static; he leads, I follow. […]

Go to see the Bollywood version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller on Andrew Sullivan’s blog.

Forgiveness

posted by J-Walking

I’m guessing we’ve all heard Jesus’ words bunches of times before: “If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he apologizes, forgive him. Even if he sins against you seven time and turns round seven times and says […]

Dear Andrew (part one)

posted by J-Walking

NOTE: Over the coming days Andrew Sullivan and I will be engaging in a dialogue/discussion/letter exchange regarding his new book, The Conservative Soul, and my book, Tempting Faith. For those who do not know him, Andrew is one of today’s […]

New York Times and Hartford Courant

posted by J-Walking

Peter Steinfels in The New York Times yesterday wrote a very nice piece on my book . What I appreciate so much about the piece is that Steinfels captures what I the book is really about: “As much as it […]

Where are the Christian denunciations?

posted by J-Walking

I keep waiting. Even now I hope I’ve missed something. I keep waiting to hear James Dobson or Jerry Falwell take to the airwaves to denounce the unconscionable attack on actor Michael J. Fox by Rush Limbaugh. We all know […]

Guest Blogger: Testifying to Stephen Colbert

posted by J-Walking

Today, guest blogger Patton Dodd, Beliefnet’s Christianity Editor who is based in Colorado Springs, comments on the reception of “Tempting Faith”: Though I’ve had the pleasure of working with David Kuo in recent weeks, like most everyone I read his […]

Sabbath thoughts

posted by J-Walking

These past two days, home with family and back in church this morning, surrounded again by friends who agree and who disagree with my thoughts but who live the reality that Jesus’ love is far more important than anything else, […]

Jesus and Bill Maher

posted by J-Walking

Need to be going to sleep, but just finished doing a small segment on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Like most of these interviews, I was piped in via satellite, so I wasn’t actually in the studio. But I was […]

My favorite moment so far…

posted by J-Walking

I got back home tonight and went to what I thought was just a small book signing in DC. It was–with the exception that C-SPAN was filming it. It was fun to have a stage to myself and be able […]

I’m Not Alone

Never Forsaken or Fogotten

posted by J-Walking

Not that every good, smart and spiritually significant thing can be found among Beliefnet-associated people, but here is yet another example of Beliefnet’s great taste: Columnist Amy Sullivan, who also does stuff for other lesser outlets like “The New Republic,” […]

Standing

posted by J-Walking

Morning again, by God’s mercy, but a hard one. Probably just tired, but also discouraged. I kept wondering why Fox News pulled the two stories they had scheduled, and then last night I figured it out. During my illness, there […]

Heresy?

posted by J-Walking

Wow, am I tired. I’ve been doing press interviews all day and I feel battered. It’s awfully hard to convey a whole book in a few minutes–let alone when the book is about your whole life and not just a […]

No More Compassion

posted by J-Walking

I keep wondering why it is that the White House keeps putting up people to respond to me who are not from the White House. Then the realization hits me — there is no one left at the White House […]

A Christian Fast from Politics

posted by J-Walking

As I’ve been doing interviews on my book, I’ve been proposing that Christians “fast” from politics. It has been mischaracterized as a call for Christians not to vote. That’s not what I mean. Christians like me have worked in politics […]

Leaning

posted by J-Walking

It is always so much easier to talk about walking with Jesus than it is to actually lean on Jesus. At least that has been my experience. Jesus is easier to love when I don’t need him so much because […]

Wow, I’m now a member of the Axis of Evil

posted by J-Walking

Well, I am glad that Jesus loves me unconditionally. For now, I am, according to a Christian writer, a member of the “Axis of Evil.” I don’t have that much time to write right now, but will have more to […]

Turning the other cheek

posted by J-Walking

So, the smears are beginning. A call this afternoon from a DC gossip columnist who was called by a Republican finance person alleging I had done something wrong to him five years ago. All I wanted to do was fight […]

Squirming through “60”

posted by J-Walking

A month ago, the “60 Minutes” crew came to our house and took over four full rooms with cameras, lights, monitors, microphones, and people. I talked with Lesley Stahl for almost four straight hours. We talked about virtually everything, including […]

Walking with Jesus, Waiting for “60 Minutes”

posted by J-Walking

Jesus and I just took a walk through Central Park. It was a great relief from the small tempest blowing around a book I have written that will be out tomorrow and on “60 Minutes” tonight. Almost no one has […]

Sunday morning in New York

posted by J-Walking

Though it clearly happens all the time, I am surprised by seeing sunrise in New York City. That dark night filled with clouds and loud taxi cabs and trucks that go ‘beep, beep, beep’ when in reverse–it gets lighter bit […]

Walking with J

posted by J-Walking

For the last 20 years my heart’s deepest desire has been to walk with Jesus – even when that was the last thing I thought I could to do. Trying to capture who Jesus is in a few words is […]

Learning to tell a story
For the last ten months or so I've been engaged in a completely different world - the world of screenwriting. It began as a writing project - probably the 21st Century version of a yen to write the great American novel - a shot at a screenplay. ...
