posted by Jason Boyett

A friend on Facebook sent me this passage recently. It’s by American philosopher and psychologist William James in his address/essay “The Will to Believe.” To preach scepticism to us as a duty until “sufficient evidence” for religion be found, is […]

David Sessions: The Hard Work of Faith

posted by Jason Boyett

I first encountered David Sessions via The CCM Patrol, which started as an anonymous blog in which “Christian music is allowed to get bad reviews.” This was in 2006, and CCM Patrol wasn’t around for too long in that early […]

This Christmas, Redeem the Goat

posted by Jason Boyett

Over the centuries, goats have gotten a bad rap. In the Old Testament, a goat was used as a representation of people’s sins (the “scapegoat“). In the New Testament, when Jesus talked about separating “the sheep and the goats,” it […]

Dean Nelson: Test Everything

posted by Jason Boyett

There are few people I like better in the world than my friend Dean Nelson. Some of my most spiritually significant experiences and most hilarious conversations have occurred in his vicinity, and I suspect that’s no coincidence. Dean’s the kind […]

Open Our Eyes: Seeing the Invisible People of Homelessness

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the first book projects I ever proposed was an idea I called “Interviews with Homeless People.” If you can’t tell from the clever title, I wanted to go down to the local soup kitchen and sit down with […]

Consider Humanism: The Atheist Ad Campaign

posted by Jason Boyett

Most of you probably didn’t have this on your calendars or anything, but today marks the launch date of the biggest atheist ad campaign in history. Why do I care? Because I’m in the advertising industry, for one thing. Also […]

Back in May, I had the pleasure of meeting Carlene Bauer after a speaking gig at Marble Collegiate in New York City. We have mutual friends, and our friend Lauren invited her to the event because the two of us […]

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
