Thanks to all of you who submitted a caption in yesterday’s caption contest. There were some great ones, which made choosing my favorite a fairly difficult task. A handful of honorable mentions. At one point or another yesterday, I was […]

It’s time for a caption contest. Your job is to write the best caption for the photo below. I’ll choose a winner tomorrow morning at 9 am CT. The caption need not have anything to do with the actual, real-life […]

Clergy Who Don’t Believe

posted by Jason Boyett

How many of the pastors and ministers in our churches no longer believe in God? That’s the question asked in “Preachers Who Are Not Believers,” a fascinating report by Daniel C. Dennett and Linda LaScola of the Center for Cognitive […]

8 Things I’ve Learned from Watching Lost

posted by Jason Boyett

After six seasons, Lost ended last night. Maybe you were aware of it. I’m not going to try to recap or analyze the mind-blowing finale in any way, other than to say you can count me among the viewers who […]

God in a Nightie

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve looked at the “Creation of Adam” fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel multiple times. When I do, my eye is always drawn to the iconic image of the hand of God doing the ET thing with Adam, […]

Immaculate Creation and the Synthetic Cell

posted by Jason Boyett

I promise I’m not this big of a science nerd — two sciencey posts in a row, in my first week! — but this is in the news so it seems the best time to comment on it. Human genome […]

Lord Jesus Christ Hit by a Car

You heard the Massachusetts story last week about Jesus Christ getting hit by a car, right? Turns out there’s a Belchertown resident — a dreadlocked, cross-dressing artist who had his name legally changed to “Lord Jesus Christ” — who was […]

Is Doubt an Eraser?

posted by Jason Boyett

“Eraser Heads” by David Heyward at Naked Pastor We often think of doubt and faith as opposites. Either you have one or the other. The presence of faith means you’ve victoriously shoved doubt aside. The presence of doubt means your […]

Who Am I and Why Am I Here?

posted by Jason Boyett

Hi. So this is my first official blog post here at Beliefnet after a few years blogging at my own site. Unless you followed me here from there (welcome, both of you!) then you likely have no idea who I […]

Keeping Up Appearances

posted by Jason Boyett

There’s an interesting little factoid in the endnotes section of Superfreakonomics. Which is saying something, because the whole book — as well as its predecessor, Freakonomics — is gloriously full of interesting little factoids. Anyway. In my childhood church environment, […]

The Problem with Asking Hard Questions

posted by Jason Boyett

My friend Matthew Paul Turner posted a review today of O Me of Little Faith, written by his friend Adam Ellis. (Disclaimer: I know Adam, too, having interviewed him for a Daily Beast article last summer.) In his review, Adam […]

Where Do I Go from Here?

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the questions I get asked pretty frequently — especially with the release of a new book — is this one: What are you writing next? That question comes from fans, family members, agents, editors, and interviewers. Up to […]

Friday Housekeeping

I returned last night from a great week in New York City where I had the privilege of speaking to the communities at Apostles Church (Tuesday) and Marble Collegiate (Wednesday) about faith, doubt, and living with both. Thanks to the […]

18 True Confessions About My True Confessions

posted by Jason Boyett

I have posted real-life confessions in the past on this blog. Actually, several times. But you’d be surprised. I’m not some serial confessor in real life — I don’t just start admitting to things in face-to-face situations — but when […]

OMOLF Introduction, with Commentary

It’s release week for O Me of Little Faith. I hope you haven’t gotten tired of my constant book-promoting over the last couple of week — it can be indelicate, but it’s sort of my job. Occasionally I need to […]

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
