O Me of Little Faith

O Me of Little Faith


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 to hear from these readers.

The second kind is from people who just want to tell me how awesome the cover is.

I like hearing from them, too, because I’m hoping they’ll judge the book by its cover. I had nothing to do with the cover photo, but I always agree that, yes, it is awesome.

My readers and I aren’t the only ones who think so. The Communication Arts Photography Annual released this month and one of its winning photos is the one from the cover of OMOLF. The image was taken in Grand Rapids by photographer Steven Wohlwender, and I’m thrilled he’s getting some recognition for such a great image.

Here’s the CA page that features the cover photo:

Congrats, Steven. In my former life as a graphic designer, I used to dream of getting my work in CA. This isn’t quite the same, but it’s close enough. I’ll take it.

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

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
