Interview: Lauren Sawyer of Preemptive Love Coalition

posted by Jason Boyett

My relationship with Preemptive Love Coalition is a complicated one, and it’s a story I’ve told elsewhere and won’t get into here. You can read more about it here and here. But suffice it to say, this is one of […]

Ron Rosenbaum on the New Agnostics

posted by Jason Boyett

At Slate yesterday, columnist Ron Rosenbaum wrote “An Agnostic Manifesto” in which he defends agnosticism against its detractors on two different sides — what he calls “the unwarranted certainties that atheism and theism offer.” It’s a thoughtful piece. His point […]

posted by Jason Boyett

In the wake of my two Ted Haggard posts a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been hearing from a number of Colorado people with updates to the story. I don’t want this to become a Ted Haggard watchblog — those […]

Family Portraits with Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

If you are like me, then you know that the thing that’s missing from your family portraits is the Lord Jesus Christ. And not just any Jesus, but a youngish white-dude Jesus with a clean complexion and a nicely trimmed […]

The Faith of Roger Ebert

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m becoming convinced that Roger Ebert is one of America’s greatest living writers. His film reviews are always fantastic. His twitter feed is legendary. And in the wake of his illness and recovery and life without the ability to speak […]

Interview with Rachel Held Evans (Part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday Rachel Held Evans and I began discussing her new book, Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the Questions. Here’s the second part of the interview. Make sure you stick around […]

Interview with Rachel Held Evans (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

New author Rachel Held Evans and I are kindred spirits. We share a publisher, we both grew up in intensely religious home environments and were on-fire-for-God kids, and we both have come out of the closet as Christians who struggle […]

Things I Did on My Vacation

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve been on vacation. Sure, you might not have been able to tell because I wrote a few blog posts in advance and scheduled them to publish while I was gone, but I was away all of last week for […]

Lookin’ Good for Jesus (Recycled)

posted by Jason Boyett

I recycled this post from my old pre-Beliefnet blog, but it was one of my favorites from last year and I thought it might be worth revisiting. ————— Some days I enter into my local Christian bookstore/knick-knackery, and — looking […]

Creeped Out by Guardian Angels

posted by Jason Boyett

Two weeks ago we discussed how, among other surprises, 55% of Americans believed they had a personal guardian angel who had protected them from harm. What we didn’t discuss is how the idea of a guardian spirit hovering around me […]

This I Believe (Part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday I began listing some of the things I mention in O Me of Little Faith as being “the things I know for sure.” For reasons of brevity, in the book, I framed this list according to the content of […]

This I Believe (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

So what in the world do you believe? Occasionally I’ll get asked that question, usually after equivocating and hemming and hawing about the things that cause me to doubt — subjects like the afterlife and historical/textual Bible criticism and whether […]

The World Cup and the Best Ad Ever

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m not the world’s most knowledgeable soccer fan, but I played as a child and have played as an adult and get excited every time the World Cup rolls around. I’m hoping this will be a great tournament, and that […]

Is the Oil Spill a Sign of the Apocalypse?

posted by Jason Boyett

The End is nigh. Again. It took longer than I expected, but there are now a variety of apocalypse watchers who have connected the dots between the Gulf oil spill and the book of Revelation. Lisa Miller at Newsweek has […]

Grace, Judgment, and the Haggard Post

posted by Jason Boyett

Usually I blog about ideas, but occasionally my topic will be a person. In yesterday’s case, I thought a post about a specific person — Ted Haggard — could be a springboard to an interesting discussion about pastors, honesty, and […]

The Strange Journey of Ted Haggard

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve been intrigued by the journey of disgraced evangelical preacher Ted Haggard, which keeps inching its way into the news cycle but never really gains as much traction as I think it deserves. A brief timeline: 1984Haggard founds New Life […]

One Question for God

posted by Jason Boyett

The famed British philosopher Bertrand Russell was known for being an outspoken atheist and social critic, in addition to his many contributions to the fields of mathematical logic and analytic philosophy. (You may have heard one of his most famous […]

The Horror of Puppets and the Sinner’s Prayer

posted by Jason Boyett

My lifelong companionship with spiritual doubt began during my childhood, after my Christian salvation experience. It has to do with a lot of things, including the intensely evangelistic culture I grew up in where “making a decision for Christ” and/or […]

On Being a Stumbling Block

posted by Jason Boyett

My friend and fellow writer Rachel Held Evans — her upcoming book Evolving in Monkey Town is excellent, btw — wrote an intriguing blog post Tuesday about being a stumbling block to other believers. Like Rachel, I grew up in […]

Have You Had These Religious Experiences?

posted by Jason Boyett

“Have you had the following religious experience?” That’s the question asked by the 2008 Baylor Religion Survey, authored by Dr. Rodney Stark and others, in an extensive look at the “depth and complexity” of America’s religious landscape. The survey’s findings […]

Is the Church the Best Place for Doubters?

posted by Jason Boyett

In the variety of interviews I’ve done for the new book, in print and radio, the interviewer and I always seem to agree on a few things: 1) Everyone has spiritual doubts, though many of us hide them. 2) It’s […]

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
