My newest book is very short and to the point. It's called Humble Orthodoxy and it's about why Christians should both care about truth but also be gracious in the way we communicate what we believe. I see too many people wishy-washy about the essentials of the faith. I also see too many people who are orthodox but really kind of mean and arrogant. Neither of these options glorify Jesus. Here's a review of the book.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. There are a number of articles and resources here, but I don't do new posts on it as frequently as I used to. You know how it goes. Blogs are so 2008. But come see me on either Twitter or my Facebook Page where I post more often. (Or just stay off social media altogether and enjoy a richer life.)
Jesus taught his disciples that they should always pray and never give up (Luke 18:1). In these three sermons I look at some of the hardest moments in the lives of Paul, Elijah and David and how God met them and sustained them through trouble. Listen here.
"When you listen and read one thinker, you become a clone... Two thinkers, you become confused... Ten thinkers, you'll begin developing your own voice... Two or three hundred thinkers, you become wise." - Tim Keller, via Keller Quotes
I’m on a journey, (re)discovering my identity, security and joy in knowing and being loved by God. I like to write, speak and engage with people about faith, culture and following Jesus. I live with my family in Vancouver, BC, where I’m currently attending a graduate school of theology (and eating as much Asian food as possible).
