A Tribal Identity?

In our divided world, what can bring us together?
From the start of humanity, we have found ways to separate ourselves from God and one another. From Adam and Eve rejecting God, to Cain murdering his brother Abel, we have had a rocky start to sticking together in spite of our differences. The honest reporting of the murky and often hostile human co

What is the power of your life? How far does your influence go? As it turns out, the impact of our lives is far more than you might imagine.Give yourself a baseline: take the next five seconds and write down the number of people you think your life could possibly impact. Dream big.Ok, go

Thanksgiving is a highly idealized American holiday. Our imaginations sparkle with visions of tables loaded with turkeys, mashed potatoes, and cisterns of gravy. We anticipate stuffing ourselves with second and thirds of the main course and a few slices of pie. Then there’s football to watch, naps to take, and even more pie to eat. […]

Hi Bob, the Academy really does require an ongoing familiarity with the computer and the internet. You may need to find someone local who can 'get you up to speed' for this particular resource to be most valuable to you. There are often trainings offered on computer skills at libraries and other organizations. I wish I could be of more assistance, but this is outside of what I'm able to focus on unfortunately.

Hi friends, the official release date for True Reason: Confronting the Irrationality of the New Atheism is tomorrow (March 1). 

The book includes some amazing contributors: William Lane Craig, Tim McGrew, and Sean McDowell are perhaps the best known.

The book is endorsed by Gary Habermas, Rick Schenker, Michael Licona, Alex McFarland, Josh McDowell, Greg Koukl, and Paul Copan.

True Reason is about a critical mission: to overturn the atheists' PR campaign to own reason and, at the same time, to graciously and reasonably demonstrate that Christianity is the worldview in which reason makes sense and is highly valued. 

The team of authors would love your support and involvement in the mission that drove us to write the book. Here's how you can get involved:
1. Use the True Reason cover photo on G+.
2. Share about the book on Twitter, G+, FB, Pinterest, etc.
3. Buy a copy for yourself and friends.
4. Tell your church, friends, colleagues, etc. about the book (email, in person, etc.).
5. Mention the book on your blog (review copies are available).
6. Pray for God to use this book to change minds, lead people to faith in Jesus, and strengthen the church's investment in thinking well.

In advance, thank you for all you decide to do in support of True Reason.

Story
Tagline
Resolving doubts. Renewing purpose.
Introduction
Why should you connect with me?

I am focused on the following topics:
  • the reasons and evidence related to the truth of Christianity (apologetics)
  • human flourishing
  • what it means to sincerely follow Jesus (discipleship)
  • how to serve our neighbors well
  • new technology with clear benefits
  • strategic thinking
I really enjoy opportunities to resolve people’s doubts, to clarify our purpose in life, and to encourage everyone to serve their neighbors.

My experience and background includes:
Are you looking for high-quality, focused, and engaging teaching at your church or ministry?

I've spoken to diverse groups at Harvard, Boston University, Boston College Law School, Rhodes College, Emory University, and multiple, regional gatherings of college students in New England and the Southeast United States. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss opportunities.

Want to sample my writing?

Selected articles include:
I've also written many book reviews, developed free resource pages on the existence of God, and carefully recommended some books on Christianity.

Why not subscribe to my blog? It's free!

Want to participate in the best conversations on apologetics?

I invite you to join the Christian Apologetics Alliance.

On a personal note:
I'm happily married to the love of my life, Mo, and we greatly enjoy our two kids.

I thank God for all of the opportunities and experiences he has provided for me. My prayer is that any and all influence entrusted to me will be used to serve Him and bless others.

Searching for resources on Google+?
I hope you'll connect with me on the following topics: #apologetics, #reason, #theology, #atheism, #Christianity, #God, #Jesus, #Lausanne, #evangelism, #discipleship, the #Bible, #technology, and #ultimatefrisbee.
