  • Understanding and Trusting Our Great God

    Coming Soon: Understanding and Trusting Our Great God

    Some of my earliest memories are of creeds and catechisms. Parents and pastors alike taught me the truths of the Christian faith and encouraged me to study creeds and the many questions and answers of the catechisms. What a foundation this laid in my young heart! No words resonated more deeply than the fourth answer…

  • 10 New and Notable Christian Books for April 2023

    It is surprisingly difficult to find a list of Christian books that have been released in any given month—especially if you want that list to be filtered by books released through particular publishers.

    A Pastoral Prayer for Love and Unity

    My Bible-Reading Recommendation for 2023

    In my way of thinking, there are two approaches to daily Bible-reading: reading for intimacy or reading for familiarity. Intimacy with the Bible comes by slow, meditative reading that focuses on small portions—deep study of books, chapters, and verses. Familiarity with the Bible comes through faster reading of larger portions—the entire sweep of the biblical…

    My Favorite New Songs of 2022

    Black Friday 2022 Deals for Christians

    While there are many places you can go today to find deals on electronics and other big-ticket items, I like to provide a place for Christian retailers to make their deals known to Christians who are trying to kick-start their Christmas shopping (or to just buy great resources at significant discounts). I will update this…
