The Devil, the Storm, and This American Life

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m a regular listener to the podcast of This American Life, from WBEZ in Chicago. Last week’s episode, “Life After Death” (episode 359) was a repeat of a 2008 episode I missed, and I can’t stop thinking about the opening […]

Atheists Know More about Religion than Christians

posted by Jason Boyett

Today the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life released the results of a new “religious knowledge” survey that came to a discouraging — but not unexpected — result. It discovered that, on average, atheists and agnostics are more knowledgeable […]

Win 75 Signed Pocket Guides (to the Bible)

posted by Jason Boyett

There are only four days left in our 30 bloggers, 30 days, $30,000 campaign to raise money for Charity:Water. Many of you have donated, for which I’m very grateful. But so far we’ve raised less than $10,000. I think we […]

Chad Gibbs: When It Doesn’t Seem Fair

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s why I like Chad Gibbs: 1. The banner on every page of his website features a close-up of Tim Tebow’s eyeblack, on which someone, presumably Chad Gibbs, has written “Chad Gibbs.” 2. The background on his Twitter page is […]

Giant Baby Caption Contest Winner

posted by Jason Boyett

Thanks to everyone who submitted a caption in yesterday’s contest. The winner is Michael Miller… Mr. Jobs’ Macworld Expo keynote did not address questions concerning apparent liver transplant complications. ———— …because that’s just funny. It hits all the right technological, […]

Giant Baby Caption Contest

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s been an interesting couple of days here at the blog with some excellent (and mostly civil) discussion. I appreciate that. But now it’s time to lighten things up a bit with a caption contest. In the comments, submit your […]

I Was Wrong: Calvin and the New Pornographers

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s impossible to take back a blog post, but I need to take back what I wrote about the decision of Calvin College to disinvite The New Pornographers from a scheduled concert at the university. Yesterday I complained that it […]

Calvin College Expels (New) Pornographers

posted by Jason Boyett

Calvin College, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is one of those Christian universities that has an admirable focus on art and culture. It has a beautiful campus, and I really like the faculty there (at least the ones I met back […]

Leeana Tankersley: The Swirling Waters

posted by Jason Boyett

I had the privilege of meeting Leeana Tankersley in April at the Festival of Faith & Writing at Calvin College. We share a publisher in Zondervan, and Leeana was there to sign copies of her debut memoir, Found Art: Discovering […]

Letters: When Faith Seems Impossible

posted by Jason Boyett

Since O Me of Little Faith released in April, I’ve been getting emails and Facebook messages from readers along the whole continuum of the doubt spectrum, from new believers doubting God’s love for them to long-time believers doubting God’s existence. […]

How to Love Your (Islamic) Neighbor

posted by Jason Boyett

This will make my third Islam-centric blog post in four days, but I wanted to share one more great news story with you. I hadn’t heard of this until a commenter (Rob the Rev) shared it in response to yesterday’s […]

Quran Burning Thwarted: Good Job, Amarillo

posted by Jason Boyett

I don’t mention my hometown very often. Most of my bios just mention that I live in Texas. I don’t hide the fact that I’ve spent my life in Amarillo, my hometown and my current place of residence. But I […]

In Remembrance: Coloring and Context

posted by Jason Boyett

You know what image from 9/11 sticks with me the most? It’s not the footage of the planes, the burning buildings, the destruction, the ash-covered firefighters, or the chaos of the streets. Yes, I think of those things when I […]

Robert Cargill: The Skeptic in the Sanctuary

posted by Jason Boyett

Dr. Robert Cargill and I go back several years (I tell a bit of the story here in his Noah’s Ark debunking interview). I always appreciate his perspective, because he’s got pretty serious credentials as a scientist, a biblical scholar, […]

Which Books Have Shaped You?

posted by Jason Boyett

Several times in my life, I’ve been in social, get-to-know-you situations where a group of us were supposed to tell, as individuals, which person or persons in our lives had influenced us the most. We were supposed to talk about […]

The Problem with John 3:16

posted by Jason Boyett

I got to know Shawn Smucker a few months back when he interviewed me for his blog around the time O Me of Little Faith released. Shawn’s a good guy and a fellow writer (he’s written two books) and he’s […]

Stephen Hawking, God, and Twitter

posted by Jason Boyett

Last Thursday, in an excerpt from his upcoming book, The Grand Design, world-famous physicist and mathematician Stephen Hawking revealed that he no longer believed the universe needed a creator God. “The universe can and will create itself from nothing,” he […]

Dana Ellis: Haunted by Questions

posted by Jason Boyett

A few weeks ago, my friend Adam Ellis contributed to the Voices of Doubt series of guest posts here. He’s not the only thoughtful writer in his family, though. Today his wife, Dana, offers her perspective on doubt, uncertainty, and […]

Simple Answers to Difficult Questions

posted by Jason Boyett

Sometimes, as a writing exercise, I just decide to start writing about an idea and see where it leads. That’s what today’s post is. My tendency is to over-analyze and over-explain when someone asks me complicated questions, especially theological ones. […]

30 Bloggers, 30 Days, $30,000

posted by Jason Boyett

Blogging is good for me. It’s an excellent way to publicize my books. It’s a way to build and sustain a platform of loyal readers. It allows me to feel like I’m doing something worthwhile, like encouraging doubters or making […]
