This website is here to give you easy access to my Bible teaching, along with some of my thoughts on leadership, culture, the Christian life, and higher education. Here are a few of my most popular posts:

  • But if Not: The Miracle of Dunkirk
  • The End of Marriage?
  • Napoleon Dynamite and the Purpose of the University

Most of the essays you’ll read here are adapted from talks I’ve given, sermons I’ve preached, and classes I’ve taught. Rachel Motte will prepare these adaptations. She is a long-time blogger who has written for numerous publications including CNN.com, and The Evangelical Outpost.

There will be one or two new essays here each week, so come back often. I’ll also record a video blog post most weeks, and these videos will be posted here for you to learn from and enjoy.

Please follow my Twitter account and friend me on Facebook. You can also subscribe to this blog via email and RSS.

My full biography and some headshots suitable for media use may be found on my Media Page. I hope you’ll enjoy what you find here, and I look forward to learning along with you as we take a close look at the Old and New Testaments together.
