Fatherly Advice Needed

posted by Jason Boyett

I need your help. I’m working on a magazine article that will publish in June around Father’s Day. I’m looking for two kinds of advice related to fathers: Advice you received from your father and advice you have for fathers. […]

Another Post about Rob Bell’s “Love Wins” Interview in New York

posted by Jason Boyett

A self-interview: ———————– So…shouldn’t you, like, be posting something about Rob Bell’s event in New York City with Lisa Miller? The launch of the “Love Wins” book tour? Probably. Why do you ask? Because your earlier thoughts about Bell’s book […]

Sex and the Bible

posted by Jason Boyett

If you’ve read the Bible beyond the Gospels and some of the safe, greeting-card-quote-ready psalms, you’re no doubt aware that there’s some stuff in it you don’t especially want your kids reading without parental supervision. Tons of violence. Some really […]

Self-Interview at the Crossroads

posted by Jason Boyett

So you asked some important questions on Tuesday and got a lot of feedback. Have you come to any decisions? Maybe. Don’t play coy with me, young man. I discovered some interesting things about my readers. Do tell. Well, they’re […]

New Year’s Resolutions

posted by Jason Boyett

The month of January is named for Janus, the two-faced Roman deity of doors, gates, beginnings and endings. He’s one of the earliest gods to show up in the Roman pantheon, and he’s usually shown with his two faces looking […]

Justifying My Existence at DFW

posted by Jason Boyett

Last Wednesday, I traveled to the beautiful campus of Colgate University to speak to the students of Colgate Christian Fellowship about faith and doubt and religious tension — the stuff I discuss in O Me of Little Faith. Colgate is […]

Is the Church the Best Place for Doubters?

posted by Jason Boyett

In the variety of interviews I’ve done for the new book, in print and radio, the interviewer and I always seem to agree on a few things: 1) Everyone has spiritual doubts, though many of us hide them. 2) It’s […]

Keeping Up Appearances

posted by Jason Boyett

There’s an interesting little factoid in the endnotes section of Superfreakonomics. Which is saying something, because the whole book — as well as its predecessor, Freakonomics — is gloriously full of interesting little factoids. Anyway. In my childhood church environment, […]

The Problem with Asking Hard Questions

posted by Jason Boyett

My friend Matthew Paul Turner posted a review today of O Me of Little Faith, written by his friend Adam Ellis. (Disclaimer: I know Adam, too, having interviewed him for a Daily Beast article last summer.) In his review, Adam […]

Where Do I Go from Here?

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the questions I get asked pretty frequently — especially with the release of a new book — is this one: What are you writing next? That question comes from fans, family members, agents, editors, and interviewers. Up to […]

Noah’s Ark Found! Robert Cargill Debunks!

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in 2007, I had the pleasure of spending a day out in the California desert shooting footage for a potential cable TV project that didn’t ever work out. Long story. But it was about archaeology, and the producers brought […]

Question: Frustrations with the Faithful

posted by Jason Boyett

A have a favor to ask you on behalf of a friend of mine. He’s working on a project and has been soliciting answers from both believers and non-believers to the following question: What do other Christians do or say […]

Addition by Adoption Interview: Kevin Hendricks

I’ve mentioned Kevin Hendricks before on this blog. He’s been a full-time freelance writer for as long as I’ve known him, which is several years now. He edits Church Marketing Sucks, founded Color4aCause, maintains his own blog, and has kept […]

Faith and the Faded Tattoo

posted by Jason Boyett

I have two tattoos. Which isn’t as big of a deal as it used to be. Everyone has tattoos now. One of mine is only a couple years old. My wife and I got matching ones on our 13th anniversary, […]

Rapture Ready! An Interview with Daniel Radosh

posted by Jason Boyett

Daniel Radosh is the kind of freelance writer who makes other freelance writers jealous. Or inspired. But mostly jealous. He’s earned himself bylines in the New Yorker, the New York Times, McSweeney’s, GQ, Esquire, Salon, Slate, and Playboy. He’s been […]

Meet the Mama Monk

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m the oldest of three Boyett siblings. I’ve discussed my brother the prestidigitator and his inner-city ministry a time or two, but haven’t ever said much about my little sister. I’m not sure of the reason for this, other than […]

I Believe…

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday, via my Twitter and Facebook accounts, I asked my friends and followers to complete a phrase any way they liked. The phrase was “I believe…” No real reason to do it, other than thinking it would be interesting to […]

The LENTerview

posted by Jason Boyett

A conversation: Seriously? “The LENTerview”? That’s horrible. Sorry. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing, like when I got that figure-skating demon tattoo. Which is also horrible. Agreed. I have my regrets. So the season of Lent begins today, right? Yes. Today […]

Picking Dandelions with Sarah Cunningham

posted by Jason Boyett

I like to read stories about interesting people. And I like to read books by excellent writers–the kind who, technically, are very good at their craft. When a gifted writer happens to be an interesting person with compelling stories and […]

Ask Me Questions

posted by Jason Boyett

I know a lot of you are aspiring writers, so every once in awhile I like to dedicate a blog post to answering writer-type questions. Instead of pre-selecting the questions, though, I figured we’d just do this one on the […]

Tyler Merrick of Project 7 (Part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday I posted Part 1 of an interview with Tyler Merrick, the founder of Project 7, a for-profit company which donates half of what it makes to organizations working in seven distinct areas of need: Heal the Sick, Save the […]

Tyler Merrick of Project 7

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to introduce you to a unique and relatively new company called Project 7, which sells consumer products (bottled water, gum, mints) — available nationwide in places like Caribou Coffee — and donates 50% of its profits to non-profit […]

What I Wish My Husband Knew about Motherhood

posted by Jason Boyett

On Wednesday I asked for feedback from guys for a magazine article I’m writing. The topic: What I Wish My Wife Knew about Fatherhood. There have been some really insightful things mentioned so far in the comments to that post. […]

What I Wish My Wife Knew About Fatherhood

posted by Jason Boyett

Feedback time. I’m working on an article assignment for a Christian magazine. (I’m going to keep it nameless right now, because some of the content might end up being anonymous.) The working title of the article is “What I Wish […]

Interview with Tess Mallory (Part 2)

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 […]

Interview with Tess Mallory (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week’s unrelated posts on worship and forbidden words in Christian romances hit a wide audience and brought a lot of new traffic to this blog, and as a result I’ve been able to connect with some interesting new people. […]

Annoyed by Worship: Solutions

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday we had a good discussion about some of the limitations of worship — or at least the modern worship movement, even though it defines worship too narrowly as “the singing part of a church service.” And there are a […]

Will the World End in 2012? Experts Speak!

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week I embarked on a humble campaign. I’m trying to convince the people of the world that, in fact, our world will NOT end on December 21, 2012, regardless of what the ancient Mayans may or may not have […]

Will the World End in 2012? A Conversation

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday I was interviewed by a college student in Georgia for a paper in which he was required to speak to an expert on a certain subject. He was interested in 2012 doomsday theories, and had seen me in a […]

Feedback on Faith (or the lack thereof)

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m working on a project and need your help. It’s about Christianity, questions/problems related to it, and reasons why some people don’t buy into it. I’m looking for feedback from people who are either a) atheists, agnostic, or otherwise non-believers…or… […]

Interview with a Real, Live Atheist (Part 2)

Here’s the rest of my interview with Dromedary Hump, author of the Atheist Camel Chronicles and the guy behind Eternal Earthbound Pets, a very real business that promises to care for your dog or cat or fish or birds should […]

Interview with a Real, Live Atheist! (Part 1)

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week I posted a snarky bit about Eternal Earthbound Pets, an atheist-owned business that promises (for a reasonable fee) to care for your pets should they be left behind if/when you are raptured. The whole thing struck me as […]

Discuss: One of the Hardest Questions

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s pretty rare that I ever do a cut-and-paste job here from someone else’s blog post. Not sure why, other than the fact that I figure it’s my blog, and I should supply the content. But courtesy of @imonk from […]

Release Day! (kinda)

posted by Jason Boyett

Today is officially the release date for my three new Pocket Guide books, although in the publishing industry there’s not always a specific street date (unless you’re crazy big-time like Harry Potter or Twilight). Some stores may have already had […]

This Week in Jason

posted by Jason Boyett

Good morning, Jason. Good morning. How are you? Fine. Thanks for asking. This is a weird way to start off a blog post. I agree, but you’re the one who just jumped right in and said “Good morning.” Not me. […]

A Conversation: The Doubt Book

posted by Jason Boyett

I sorta like like formatting a blog post as a conversation between two Jasons, so I’m gonna do it again. Don’t you dare try to stop me. ————- Jason 1 (interviewer): So you said you had an announcement. What is […]

Who Are You Calling a Sellout?

posted by Jason Boyett

A conversation between two Jasons… ————- Creative Jason: So this is it, huh? You’re selling out, aren’t you? Business Jason: I wouldn’t exactly call it “selling out.” More like “maximizing opportunity.” CJ: Dork. You never could use three syllables when […]
