The Order and Causes of Salvation and Damnation: An Infographic

Though the name Visual Theology may be new, the idea is not. In fact, all the way back in the seventeenth century John Bunyan produced an incredible work of visual theology titled “A Map Shewing the Order and Causes of Salvation and Damnation.” In a pair of side-by-side timelines he traced the salvation of the believer (or the elect) and the damnation of the unbeliever (or the reprobate). This chart has since been reproduced a number of times but, to …

Visual Theology: Judges

It has been a little while since I’ve provided an update on Visual Theology (the book) as well as new Visual Theology posters and graphics. It is time to remedy that! As you know, Visual Theology (the book) rapidly sold out of its initial printings and it took a few weeks for the printer to catch up. However, it is now in stock at most stores in North America and Europe. We have nearly completed the PowerPoint slides to go …

Visual Theology: Gratitude, Explanations, and FAQs

It was a week ago today that we released my new book Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God (which, of course, I co-authored with Josh Byers). Now, just a week later, it’s out of stock at Amazon, Westminster Books, Lifeway, CBD, and pretty well every other bookseller. I’ve had a number of people get in touch to ask why they can’t track it down. I did some digging and conference calling this morning and came up with …

5 Ways to Use Visual Theology (+ a Bonus Download)

Several years ago our church experienced an unexpected surge of growth. The majority of those who arrived in that surge were young adults who loved the Lord but had not received consistent teaching on how to live as Christians. As one of their pastors, I longed to see them grow in their knowledge of God so they could, in turn, live for his glory. I did not know it at the time, but it was here that Visual Theology was …

Visual Theology Releases Today!

Today is the day! Today is the official launch day for my new book Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God. This book is the result of a collaboration between me, a writer, and Josh Byers, a graphic designer. We worked together to create a book that brings together two great media–words and infographics. Combining the power of each of them, we created a book that both describes and illustrates the truth about God and man. Our purpose …

Visual Theology @ T4G

As you know, my book Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God is set for an April release. The release date matches up with the Together for the Gospel conference and for that reason Zondervan has decided to host a Visual Theology event. If you are coming to T4G, you are invited to attend! Josh Byers and I will be discussing the book and offering suggestions for how pastors, teachers, and leaders can make use of visual theology. …

One Another: A New Visual Theology Print

The New Testament contains at least 40 passages that contain the words “one another.” Each one of these points to a way that Christians are to treat, or are not to treat, each other.  As Josh Byers and I prepare for the release of our book Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God (now available for pre-order and including free gifts!) we are beginning to release some of the book’s images in poster format. Combined with our existing Visual …

Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God (Coming Soon!)

We live in a visual culture. Today, people increasingly rely upon visuals to help them understand new and difficult concepts. The rise and popularity of the Internet infographic has given us a new way to convey data, concepts, and ideas. But the visual portrayal of truth is not a novel idea. God himself used visuals to teach truth to his people. If you have ever considered the different elements within the Old Testament tabernacle or temple you know that each …

New Visual Theology Posters

A few years ago I began rolling out a series of infographics I called Visual Theology. I was attempting to not only describe truth, but also to display it in visual form. Over the past few months I have been working with Josh Byers to create a whole new series of Visual Theology graphics. Some are reboots of graphics from the first series, and some are original. We are now rolling them out at a pace of one or two …
