Writer’s Mailbag (part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

First of all, happy Leap Day! Did you know that there’s just a .068 percent chance of being born on Leap Day, compared to a .27 percent chance of being born any other day of the year? Around 200,000 leaplings […]

Writer’s Mailbag

posted by Jason Boyett

This is the question most often asked of published writers by potential writers: I’ve got a great idea for a book. How do I go about getting it published? (HT: Robert Fortner‘s comment on this post) I wish I had […]

PFB Sports Survey

You can only hold onto your personal dignity for so long, and for me, that time has probably come to an end with my answers to the Prayers for Blowouts Sports Survey. Once you read today’s post at this excellent […]

Gratitude and Deadly Vipers

posted by Jason Boyett

Over the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to do some freelance work for Mike Foster and his innovative culture-challenging, good-doing, non-profit organization, Ethur. One of Ethur’s projects is the Junky Car Club, which is just plain awesome (and […]

Basilica Church

posted by Jason Boyett

A quick thanks to Cameron Reeves and the gracious team at Basilica Church in Canyon, Texas, for inviting me in to speak last night. Basilica is a young church plant with a distinctively progressive, ecumenical outlook, and it’s good to […]

Pygmy Love Queens and Odd Book Titles

posted by Jason Boyett

You might have noticed that my books tend to have longish, quirky titles and subtitles. So far in my writing career, I’ve had the luxury of being able to mostly have my way when it comes to book titles, and […]

Healing Waters International

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to briefly use this (small, hardly noticeable) platform to call attention to one of my favorite social justice organizations. Healing Waters International is a Colorado-based nonprofit that provides clean water to the urban poor of Guatemala, Mexico, and […]

More on Estus Pirkle

posted by Jason Boyett

As promised, I’d like to revisit the previous post about Estus Pirkle’s mind-boggling evangelistic film from the 70s. If you’re anything like me, you go through a multi-stage emotional process when you watch something like “The Believer’s Heaven.” Let me […]

Estus Pirkle and The Believer’s Heaven

posted by Jason Boyett

In recent weeks, a really short, low-budget religious film has been making the you’ve-gotta-see-this rounds among cackling irreligious hipsters and flinching people of faith. Written and produced by old-time Mississippi Baptist minister Estus Pirkle, the film is called “The Believer’s […]

I Am SO White

posted by Jason Boyett

I was just introduced to a young but already popular blog, thanks to a tip from my brother. It’s called Stuff White People Like, and it’s either a brilliantly funny model of satire or it’s borderline racist (depending on how […]

How Do You Write? (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

One question I always want to ask professional writers is about the process of writing for them — when do you write, where do you write, what’s your deskspace like, etc? Since this blog is partially supposed to be about […]

Happy Obligatory Romance Day!

posted by Jason Boyett

Three weeks ago I shared about how I don’t necessarily heart Valentine’s Day, which — if you keep up with these things — is today. The article I mentioned working on back then has now been published at TrueU.org, so […]

The End of the Strike

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve been keeping up with the Writer’s Guild strike fairly closely over the last three months, primarily because 1) I’m a writer, though I’m not in the guild, and 2) because I seriously wanted to know when I would get […]

As If You Want to Know My Quirks

posted by Jason Boyett

I got blog meme-tagged by my Interwebs friend Bryan, so I will hereby follow the rules and tell you some things about myself you didn’t know you wanted to know. The rules are as follows: 1. Link to the person […]

Pocket Guide to Sainthood (Preview #1)

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m finishing up book #1 in my three-book Pocket Guide deal with Jossey-Bass: Pocket Guide to Sainthood. And there are so many good/weird/funny stories that it was a challenge to keep the book pocket-sized. It seriously could have been called […]

FJM Unmasked

posted by Jason Boyett

The sporting world has always been enamored of multitaskers. Bo Jackson (Baseball, Football), Joe Gibbs (Football, NASCAR), Bill Belichick (Football, Videography, Fashion). We learned this week that the world of sports blogging also has a few notable multitaskers. And no, […]

Church Hopping

posted by Jason Boyett

I just finished participating in a bit of immersion journalism that’s slated to appear in the May/June issue of Relevant Magazine. For those who aren’t hip with the supersecret writing lingo, immersion journalism is the kind of writing where a […]

Why I Observe Lent

posted by Jason Boyett

By virtue of my background, membership, and my current church attendance (though, perhaps, not my theology), I am a Southern Baptist. Thanks to our Anabaptist heritage — which threw out anything smacking of popishness back in the 17th century — […]

Super Bowl

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m not generally a big Super Bowl watcher. There have been a couple games over the past few years that I didn’t watch at all. Two years ago, my wife and I were in in Las Vegas on Super Bowl […]

Which Bible? Part 8 (The Message)

posted by Jason Boyett

This is the last full entry on the survey of translations from Pocket Guide to the Bible. If you missed the earlier installments, here they are up to this point: King James Version Revised Standard Version Jerusalem Bible New American […]

I Win! I Win!

posted by Jason Boyett

If you voted, you probably received an email to this effect. If you didn’t vote, you probably don’t care anyway. But the results of the ChangeEffect contest are in and my story about Paw-Paw was the big winner. Chicago, here […]

Farewell, O Me of Little Faith
You said you had a big announcement coming today. What is it? The announcement is this: Right now you are reading the final post on this blog. Ever. Ever? Ever. So you're shutting this blog down? Well, I'm going to stop writing any new posts for it. But the blog will still be here. Th

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
