The All-Important Toupee Question

posted by Jason Boyett

I have a serious question about a silly topic: preachers who wear toupees. I am not dogmatic about very many religious things. I’m pretty easygoing and tend to think, as a rule, grace is always better than judgment. Except for […]

Lord, Save Us from Supply and Demand

posted by Jason Boyett

So there’s a minister in Maryland who has started a grass-roots movement with a catchy name. The “Pray Down the High Gas Prices Movement,” courtesy of Seventh-Day Adventist Rocky Twyman, carries with it a simple request: Please, God, will you […]

My Literary Earworms

posted by Jason Boyett

Any lover of books and stories has certain lines that stick with them — phrases and sentences that, for whatever reason, embed themselves in your consciousness like a literary earworm. (An earworm is a snippet of a song that gets […]

Sweet Saintly Nomenclature! (Sainthood Preview)

posted by Jason Boyett

Just uploading a little bonus content from Pocket Guide to Sainthood, because I’ve just learned that users of the Internets prefer short paragraphs, bold type, lots of links, and lists. Lots and lots of lists. So this comes from Ch. […]

Watch Me Prophesy Doom!

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week I uploaded a video featuring clips of my appearance on a History Channel program about the Garden of Eden. If you watched it, you’ll probably be disappointed to learn that I’m on another “Decoding the Past” program, too. […]

If I Were a Superhero…

posted by Jason Boyett

…my superhero name would totally be Ray. Ultraviolet Ray. 1. You wouldn’t be able to see me.2. I could damage your skin if you got too close to me, without proper protection.3. I could immediately disinfect any water I touch. […]

Watch Me Decode the Past!

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the weird things about writing historical (albeit entertaining) books like the Pocket Guides is that it makes you an “expert” on the subject matter. Sort of. Which means I am an expert on the book of Revelation. And […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Today we continue with Part Two of an interview with Anne Jackson, author of Mad Church Disease and the persona behind FlowerDust.net. (Read Part One here.) Anne grew up the daughter of a West Texas pastor and had a front-row […]

Anne Jackson Interview (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m tired of blogging about me — and you may be tired of reading about me. So let’s talk to someone else. A couple weeks ago, I interviewed Matthew Paul Turner right after his new book released. Now it’s time […]

Hell’s Most Wanted: A Critique

posted by Jason Boyett

I posted this already at Prayers for Blowouts — where I’m now an official contributor — but I’m slapping it up here, too, in case you didn’t see it. As I see it, there are several problems with this banner. […]

This Is Why You Don’t Do That

posted by Jason Boyett

I was a dorky teenager, so I can’t say I’ve never mooned anyone. I have. And in mixed company, too. But while my occasional moonings may have caused psychological harm to others, they never resulted in actual physical harm. Looks […]

The Now List

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s a fun list that came right off the top of my head. Seriously. I was just riding my bike to work and a sheet of paper fell out of a tree as I whooshed by and it landed on […]

We Have a Winner!

posted by Jason Boyett

The votes are in on the Fake Band Names contest! I’d announce the victor but I’m waiting for a committee to decide whether or not we accept full or half-votes from the residents of Michigan and Florida. Not really. But […]

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
