Larry Shallenberger: The Knight and the Fortune Cookie

posted by Jason Boyett

Maybe it’s just me, but I love hearing from pastors who admit to having questions. Some people get annoyed by this, but I find it to be comforting. Part of it is knowing I’m not alone. The other part is […]

Poland Gets a Really Big Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

Good news for people who love enormous statues of Jesus: Now there’s a great reason to go to Poland! Swiebodzin, a 21,000-citizen Polish town near the German border, is almost finished building a gigantic Christ statue. When finished, it’ll be […]

How to Evangelize an Atheist

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday Matthew Paul Turner pointed to this video by Christian author and radio personality June Hunt, about how to get an atheist thinking so much that he or she might be willing to transition from their hard-core atheism to, at […]

The Iron Fist: Finding Time to Write

posted by Jason Boyett

A couple weeks ago, in the comments for this post, a commenter offered a suggestion: If you feel up for it, maybe you can put up a post that can give us readers some tips on how to keep writing […]

David Dark: The Wonder-Working Power of Sacred Questioning

posted by Jason Boyett

He probably doesn’t remember it, but David Dark played a minor role in my journalistic coming-of-age. One of the first assigned articles I ever wrote was for a (now defunct) online magazine called Communique Journal. It was back in 1997 […]

The Silence of God

posted by Jason Boyett

I know it says a lot about me that I think this is such a great cartoon. But it is: David Hayward, the Naked Pastor, consistently produces excellent stuff. Go visit his site. While you’re at it, purchase his book. […]

Are Christians Jerks?

posted by Jason Boyett

Christ Covenant Church in Beaumont, Texas, has been making headlines in recent weeks with a new billboard along Interstate 10. It says “What a bunch of jerks!” then lists the church’s website. According to the pastor, the sign is promoting […]

Religion and Politics and Youthful Disaffection

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday, the LA Times published a thought-provoking commentary about disaffection with church among young people and the reasons behind it. Twenty years ago, only 7% of Americans claimed no religious affiliation, and that wasn’t a surprising number. We were a […]

Cara Davis: A Textbook Case

posted by Jason Boyett

Do I owe my writing career to Cara Davis? She’d probably say “no,” but I’m not so sure. She was the first person I got to know at Relevant Magazine, the first editor to ask me if I had any […]

More About You: TV, Sports, and Halloween

posted by Jason Boyett

Reader feedback time! Some of my favorite blog posts are the ones that don’t have any content at all, but simply ask a question or two of you readers. Your responses are always as interesting and informative and fun as […]

Letters: Desperate to Belong

posted by Jason Boyett

My friend, Steve, sent this to me yesterday about his experience as a gay man growing up in the church. He lives in Berkeley, California. Like Chad’s account on Monday, it’s worth reading: —————- When you’re desperate to fit in, […]

Bullied for Being Gay: A Friend’s Story

posted by Jason Boyett

You’ve no doubt seen the rash of news reports about the recent uptick in teenage suicides related to sexual orientation. A recent study found that, in 2009, 9 out of 10 lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgendered (LGBT) students experienced harassment at school, and nearly […]

Matthew Paul Turner: Letting Them See My Doubt

posted by Jason Boyett

Matthew Paul Turner and I became acquainted pretty soon after he published The Christian Culture Survival Guide (complete with a foreword from Stephen Baldwin) and I came out with Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse. Both books were published by Relevant. […]

Is Doubt a Trend?

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to call your attention to two great blog posts in recent days about doubt. The first comes from Rachel Held Evans, who asks Is doubt a trend? Personally, I’ve been accused of writing O Me of Little Faith […]

A Belated Review in Publisher’s Weekly

posted by Jason Boyett

If you’ll allow me a day of ridiculously shameless self-promotion, O Me of Little Faith finally got reviewed by Publisher’s Weekly (though as a web exclusive, and not in the print edition): Doubt can play an important role in a […]

Geocentricity, Creationism, and Taking the Bible Literally

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in March I interviewed Daily Show writer Daniel Radosh about his book Rapture Ready! Adventures in the Parallel Universe of Christian Pop Culture. It’s a pretty great book offering a hilarious, honest outsider’s assessment of American Christianity. I recommend […]

Sally Lloyd-Jones: Where Did You Put Your Faith?

posted by Jason Boyett

Like Oreos and Yo Gabba-Gabba, Sally Lloyd-Jones is beloved by children and their parents alike. If it’s possible for an evangelical children’s writer to be a cult figure, she’s it. Sally is the British-born author of a number of children’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
