The Only Horoscope You’ll Ever Need

posted by Jason Boyett

A couple of weeks ago, the Internet blew up when Parke Kunkle, an astronomy instructor in Minneapolis, noted for the Star-Tribune that due to the Earth’s axis wobble and something called precession, astrologers are currently one month off in their […]

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. […]

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 […]

Family Portraits with Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

If you are like me, then you know that the thing that’s missing from your family portraits is the Lord Jesus Christ. And not just any Jesus, but a youngish white-dude Jesus with a clean complexion and a nicely trimmed […]

Creeped Out by Guardian Angels

posted by Jason Boyett

Two weeks ago we discussed how, among other surprises, 55% of Americans believed they had a personal guardian angel who had protected them from harm. What we didn’t discuss is how the idea of a guardian spirit hovering around me […]

God in a Nightie

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve looked at the “Creation of Adam” fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel multiple times. When I do, my eye is always drawn to the iconic image of the hand of God doing the ET thing with Adam, […]

Art Appreciation

posted by Jason Boyett

The oil painting above is called “Mother Mary with the Holy Child Jesus Christ.” It was painted by a European artist in the early part of the 20th century. It’s not a fantastic piece of art by any means, but […]

Six Jesus Statues That Creep Me Out

posted by Jason Boyett

Jesus statues: Like MTV reality shows and limericks about an island south of Cape Cod, rarely are they made in good taste. Occasionally they are just plain disturbing, as in these examples… ——– 1. Drowning Jesus This 62-feet high sculpture […]

Dinosaurs and Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

Earlier this week I revealed my childhood love for dinosaurs. And as a kid growing up in a devout Christian home, I also harbored a childhood love for Jesus. Some of my first real spiritual questions came when I wasn’t […]

Celestial Soul Portraits

posted by Jason Boyett

First, please look at this photo: I know what you’re thinking: Can this photo even be improved? Clearly it is awesome already, what with the guy’s mullet perm, floppy hippie shirt, super-masculine power violin stance, and absence of feet. Also […]

Interview with Tess Mallory (Part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s Part 2 of my interview with romance writer Tess Mallory, who has written several time-travel romances and, over the past couple weeks, has become a frequent commenter on this blog. That’s Tess below, with her granddaughter. Read Part 1 […]

Friday Fun

posted by Jason Boyett

Why a post of random stuff? Because it’s been a random (and craaaazy) week. ————• The Internet Monk’s “Annual Halloween Rant” is so worth reading for stuffy, scared-of-Satanism Christians. I totally agree. ————• If you want to see the most […]

American Jesus Art!

posted by Jason Boyett

This blog has been fascinated, appalled, and otherwise dumbfounded in the past by Jesus art, which is rarely inspirational and often inappropriate. Today we have a whole new painting to discuss. Behold: Jesus, the Founding Father of America and He […]

Choose Your Favorite Jesus Art

posted by Jason Boyett

As has been discussed before on this blog, it’s hard to make good Jesus art. It’s easy to make bad Jesus art. It’s also challenging to discuss the goodness or badness of Jesus art, because people get defensive and use […]

Push Button, Receive Bacon

posted by Jason Boyett

I am a designer and occasional artist, but only rarely have I ever resorted to real graffiti. I can’t remember any specific instances, but I’m fairly sure I have left my mark on the occasional bathroom wall. Probably to make […]

Tacky Christian Art, Part 2: More Thoughts

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week’s post about the Jesus/Junkie Christian art was a popular one. A few commenters thought I (and others) were a little mean in critiquing the painting. A bunch of other commenters jumped right into the fray, finding a lot […]

Please Explain This Christian Art

posted by Jason Boyett

Oh boy. So at his tumblr blog, Trying to Follow, Ariah Fine posted the illustration below and asked for comments. Jesus has suffered quite a few indignities at the hands of Christian artists over the last few decades (I attribute […]

The Shameless Art Post

posted by Jason Boyett

Self-debasement time. One of my resolutions for 2009 was to finish four paintings this year. I haven’t talked much on the blog about my painting hobby, but I’m thinking maybe now is a good time to do so. Why? Because […]

Shiny, Happy Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

What does your Jesus look like? I’ve been interested in portrayals of Jesus since I was assigned a 2005 article for Relevant about how everyone, from hippies to capitalist republicans to urban hipsters, seems to want to claim Jesus for […]
