An Interview with Keith Getty

I recently had the opportunity to ask Keith Getty a few questions about the church and hymnody and whatever else I wanted to talk about. I figured that’s an opportunity I ought to take.

What positives or negatives have we seen in the past …

The (Graphic Novel) Book of Revelation

I have been enjoying the app and recently got in touch with Chris Koelle, the artist, to ask him about the project. I hope you …

Summer Interview Series: Richard Abanes (Part 2)

Describe, if you could, the nature of your involvement with Saddleback Community Church. I understand you were on staff there in the past. I started attending Saddleback in 1994/95. I was on staff as the Creative Arts Director from 1998-2000, but left staff because I felt like God wanted me to write more books—which would have really been impossible if I was on staff. I have not been on staff since 2000 and I am not in any way an …
