My apologies for the shameless self-promotion, but while supplies last, I’m having an apocalyptic blow-out sale right now at jasonboyett.com. Just in case we all need it this weekend, I’m offering Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse for $5.21 in honor […]

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 […]

Confessions of One Who Hasn’t Blogged

posted by Jason Boyett

I have no excuses for not having blogged this week. Actually, I have one fairly good excuse. Thanks to all of you who participated in the Great Pocket Guide Giveaway of 2009 on Monday and Tuesday, I have spent most […]

FREE: Pocket Guide to the Bible

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to try something. Thanks to Chris Anderson’s new book, Free — and the controversy it has caused — there has been a lot of discussion around the Web regarding the value of products. Specifically, whether or not it […]

Come Back Monday, or Else

posted by Jason Boyett

I decided to do something today that I hope will be of interest to you. What is it? I’m not telling until Monday night, when it goes into effect. But I’ll give you a hint. It involves large quantities of […]

Help a Brother Out

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s July, one month before my three new Pocket Guide books release. If you’re getting tired of me saying “Pocket Guide,” then I have some bad news for you. Over the next couple of months, I’m going to be talking […]

Three Things for Monday

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m pulling together a post for tomorrow that I think you’ll enjoy. In the meantime, here are three not-at-all-related things to catch you up on: 1. The Daily Beast: If you keep up with my Twitter feed, you would have […]

The Story of Ehud, for Kids

posted by Jason Boyett

There’s a section in Pocket Guide to the Bible called “Seven Lesser-Known Bible Stories That Shouldn’t Be Told to Children.” I think of these stories every time our church hands out Bibles to 1st graders, and every time I see […]

Contest Winner: The Inspirational Kitten

posted by Jason Boyett

Some of you are more disturbed than I am. Lots of good entries in yesterday’s not-very-inspiring “inspirational kitten” caption contest. Lots of entries that made me throw up in my mouth a little. Of the good entries, I couldn’t pick […]

Bart Ehrman and Jesus, Interrupted

posted by Jason Boyett

Bart Ehrman is the kind of person who fascinates me. Evangelical Christians love conversion stories, but his story goes in the wrong direction. He was raised Episcopalian, then became “born again” in his teens. He headed to Moody Bible Institute […]

Pocket Guide Cover Art

posted by Jason Boyett

We’ve arrived on almost-final artwork for the covers of my new Pocket Guide books, which are scheduled to release around late July/early August this year. As someone who makes his living as both a writer and designer, I’m pretty picky […]

How to Sign 75 Books Quickly

posted by Jason Boyett

The Collide/Pocket Guide Giveaway is still going strong (get a free copy of Pocket Guide to the Bible with your subscription) and today I needed to ship out another box of signed books to the Collide team. So last night […]

Collide Promotion and Other Thoughts

posted by Jason Boyett

A couple of days ago I linked to an article I wrote for Collide Magazine, an excellent and growing publication about the collision of religion and media. I think Collide is doing a lot of things right. It’s well-designed, it’s […]

A Rant: Noah’s Ark and Scary Bibles

posted by Jason Boyett

When we were expecting our daughter eight years ago and we started looking at options for decorating her nursery, I was struck by something I noticed at the local Christian bookstore. It had a little section devoted to religious nursery […]

Interview at The Ooze

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in 2006, Becky Garrison interviewed me for The Wittenburg Door, about my new (back then) book Pocket Guide to the Bible. I loved The Door, and was thrilled to be in it. I answered Becky’s questions with all the […]

The Green Bible

posted by Jason Boyett

On October 7, publisher HarperOne is taking a bold new step in Bible publishing: The Green Bible. It’s an environmentally friendly Bible, in terms of its packaging — 10% post-consumer recycled paper, soy-based ink, cotton binding — but that’s not […]

You Are the Editor: Pocket Guide to the Bible

posted by Jason Boyett

If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you probably know that my last book, Pocket Guide to the Bible — published in 2006 by Relevant — is being repackaged and republished as part of Jossey-Bass’s new Pocket Guide reference […]

Watch Me Prophesy Doom!

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week I uploaded a video featuring clips of my appearance on a History Channel program about the Garden of Eden. If you watched it, you’ll probably be disappointed to learn that I’m on another “Decoding the Past” program, too. […]

Watch Me Decode the Past!

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the weird things about writing historical (albeit entertaining) books like the Pocket Guides is that it makes you an “expert” on the subject matter. Sort of. Which means I am an expert on the book of Revelation. And […]

Contest: Fake Band Shirts

posted by Jason Boyett

Here’s a question I get from time to time: What’s the deal with your “fake band shirts” thing? I’ll tell you what the deal is: The deal is that fake band shirts are awesome, and everyone needs an awesome shirt. […]

Coming Soon

posted by Jason Boyett

A few items of interest should be happening next week here at jasonboyett.com. They are as follows: 1. I recorded an interview today with Moody Radio in Cleveland (WCRF — 103.3 fm). Probably about a 30-minute interview with their morning […]
