Interview at The Ooze

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in 2006, Becky Garrison interviewed me for The Wittenburg Door, about my new (back then) book Pocket Guide to the Bible. I loved The Door, and was thrilled to be in it. I answered Becky’s questions with all the […]

Hummus Wars

Just when you thought international relations couldn’t get any trickier…it turns out not even the humble chick pea is safe from escalating tensions. Lebanon announced a couple of weeks ago that it’s filing an international lawsuit against the nation of […]

King, Bible, and a Note

posted by Jason Boyett

Two nuggets of interestingness followed by a note about next week: 1. Stephen King. I’ve always been a bit of a controversialist, particularly when it comes to Christian culture and its connection to the horror genre. That’s why, several years […]

Stiff-Necked, Unbelieving Buses

It’s time for another sneak preview of Pocket Guide to the Afterlife, which releases next year from Jossey-Bass (along with Pocket Guide to Sainthood and a repackaged Pocket Guide to the Bible). The following is one of the lists from […]

God Cleared on a Technicality

posted by Jason Boyett

You can breathe a sigh of relief now, because God won’t be going to jail. A Nebraska state senator named Ernie Chambers filed a lawsuit last year against God, accusing him of inspiring fear, making terroristic threats against the senator […]

How Do You Pray?

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve been thinking a lot about prayer lately, mainly because I just finished writing a chapter about prayer in my “doubt” manuscript for Zondervan. Mainly it’s about my problems with prayer — including: 1. How I don’t understand it very […]

I Know Joe the Plumber. For Real.

posted by Jason Boyett

So the big star of the debate Wednesday night was Joe Wurzelbacher, an undecided plumber whom John McCain mentioned more than 20 times at Hofstra. The national media has been buzzing about this guy since the debate ended. I actually […]

Healing Waters in the Denver Post

posted by Jason Boyett

The Denver Post published a front-page feature a couple of days ago about my friends Tom & Dana Larson and their organization, Healing Waters International. HWI is one of my favorite humanitarian organizations and has one of the most creative […]

Matthew Paul Turner on Humor (Part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s part two of my interview with Matthew Paul Turner about Churched and the role humor plays in his writing specifically and in the Church as a whole. If you didn’t read part one yesterday, then read it first and […]

Matthew Paul Turner on Humor (Part 1)

Time to Vote: Fake Book Title Contest

posted by Jason Boyett

On Friday, a few of you submitted fake book titles using “nounjectives” in the style of Matthew Paul Turner‘s new book, Churched. I promised a free signed copy of Pocket Guide to the Bible to the winner. I have my […]

Churched and Other Weird Adjectives

posted by Jason Boyett

This is release week for my friend Matthew Paul Turner‘s new book, Churched: One Kid’s Journey Toward God Despite a Holy Mess. Release week is always a big deal for a writer, because typically you’ll have finished the book months […]

Buying More Shoes, Saving More Lives

Some of you may be aware of Buy Shoes, Save Lives, an organization I profiled about a year ago for Relevant Magazine. BSSL is now called the Preemptive Love Coalition. If you are unfamiliar with their work, they operate out […]

Obama and Abortion

posted by Jason Boyett

First, I’ll apologize up front. I know not everyone wants to read about politics on this blog. You’d rather read funny stuff and gentle religious sarcasm and blatant self-promotion about my books and writing. I understand that, so this will […]

The Grapes of Wrath

posted by Jason Boyett

People go to hell for continually calling attention to this sort of thing — and for laughing at it, as I have — but my friend Cara reminded me of it at her blog. So it’s her fault. And this […]

It Is Designed to Break Your Heart

posted by Jason Boyett

God created Adam and Eve to love him and serve him. He put them in a lovely garden. They failed to follow the one rule he gave them, so he kicked them out and closed down the garden experiment.God chose […]

Who Are You? Also: Mars

If you’re new to this blog and haven’t yet commented in the Who Are You? thread (also linked in the top bar above), then please do so. Because I want to know who you are, and where you’re writing from, […]

Trash and Waste and Stuff

posted by Jason Boyett

I need your help. I’m working on a new article for Christian Single about our big waste problem, which sounds like something you shouldn’t talk about in mixed company but is really about trash and consumption and having too much […]

First, I need you to look at the product below, produced by some new Christian brand called 1 in 3 Trinity. They specialize in Christian clothing and energy drinks. That’s right: energy drinks. You should know that a Christian energy […]

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
