posted by Jason Boyett

When I decided to start this guest-blogger series — which I’m calling “Voices of Doubt” and which features friends of mine telling their own stories of doubt — I thought immediately about asking Adam Ellis to participate. Matthew Paul Turner […]

A Guy’s Guide to Self-Interviews

posted by Jason Boyett

Jason: So I see there’s a new book shown over there in the right-hand sidebar. JB: Yes, there is. What of it? I was just noticing, that’s all. It has an eye-catching cover, what with the bold yellow type and […]

Does God Exist? Why or Why Not?

posted by Jason Boyett

The question “Does God exist?” is a pretty big one in my personal life. My answer to that question determines all kinds of things about me — my ethics, my career, how I spend my time, how I relate to […]

Nicole Wick: The Worst Breakup Ever

posted by Jason Boyett

As I mentioned prior to last week’s post by Anna Broadway, I think it’s time to begin listening to other voices beside my own as we talk about religious doubt and spiritual uncertainty. I’m going to make this a regular […]

Quotes about Doubt

posted by Jason Boyett

I get asked occasionally if I’ve heard this or that quote about doubt and faith from such-and-such famous person. In most (but not all) cases, yes, I’m aware of the quote. This is due to two reasons: 1) Because I’m […]

6 Unanswered Backpacking Questions

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday I returned from a 4-day adventure in the Pecos Wilderness at the top of New Mexico. It was my annual backpacking trip with three old friends (and two new ones), and as usual, I returned with a sunburn, a […]

Anna Broadway on Doubt and Marriage

posted by Jason Boyett

There are more perspectives on doubt, of course, than just my own. I thought it would be a worthwhile idea to let other doubting believers discuss their own experiences with spiritual uncertainty. First up is Anna Broadway, author of Sexless […]

Slavery, Usury, and the Evolution of Beliefs

posted by Jason Boyett

In the 17th century, in response to his support for Copernicanism, the Church condemned Galileo and his heliocentric ideas. Good Christians fought opposed the idea that the sun was at the center of the solar system. Why? Because the Bible […]

Honoring the Boy with the Band-Aids

posted by Jason Boyett

I get two kinds of comments about my latest book, O Me of Little Faith. The first is the you-write-like-you’re-in-my-head kind from people who can identify with my doubting and have been living the same spiritual questions. I’m always glad […]

The Problem with Honesty

posted by Jason Boyett

“Let’s be honest for a second.” I hate when I find myself saying that at the start of a conversation. I hate when I begin a sentence, “To be honest.” Because saying it implies that what is about to follow […]

What Do Atheists Think of Christians?

posted by Jason Boyett

On Tuesday, I mentioned The Outsider Interviews, a book and DVD describing what non-believers think about believers. It was brought to my attention by blogger and author Hemant Mehta, the “Friendly Atheist.” In his post about the book/DVD, he asked […]

The Outsider Interviews

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m excited about a new book called The Outsider Interviews: A New Generation Speaks Out on Christianity, by Jim Henderson, Todd Hunter & Craig Spinks. It’s not just a book, either, but a “DVB” — a book + DVD. The […]

Motherhood: A Blog Fight, a Culture War, and Grace

posted by Jason Boyett

A week ago, the blogosphere began buzzing about a debate that, to be honest, I thought maybe we’d moved beyond. Turns out I was wrong. The whole situation was about whether or not it was OK for Christian moms to […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Some Christians are excited that, this year, Independence Day is on a Sunday. They will have flags prominently displayed in their sanctuary. They will sing “God Bless America.” Their choirs and orchestras may do a special patriotic presentation. Their pastor […]
