Welcome to the Deeper Journey . . . Discovering that there really is more to the Christian faith.

Hey, how’s it going? I’m Frank Viola. I’m happily married, a father, a cat lover and owner, the author of God’s Favorite Place on Earth and From Eternity to Here, a speaker, a writer, and an entrepreneur. I love movies, music, and NY style pizza.

But this blog isn’t about me, it’s about you.

My mission is to help serious followers of Jesus know their Lord more deeply, gain fresh perspectives on old or ignored subjects, and make the Bible come alive.

If you are someone whose heart cry is: “There’s got to be more to the Lord, to the Christian faith, and to church than this,” then this blog is for you. Let me explain . . .

Most Christians know that something is wrong with contemporary Christianity. They want to break free from the tyranny of the status quo. The two alternatives that dominate Christian culture today is spiritual complacency on the one hand or performance-based religiosity on the other.

Modern-day Christianity is 10 miles wide and one inch deep.

I’ve created this blog to break through to a higher and deeper expression of the faith . . . one that digs below the surface and moves beyond the shallows.

The Deeper Journey

The blog is designed for Jesus followers who don’t feel comfortable with the Conservative Right or the Progressive Left, but who are looking for a more authentic, biblical expression of the Christian faith that contains and ignites passion for Jesus.

My books provide my best thinking on knowing Jesus more deeply, gaining fresh perspectives on old (or ignored) subjects, and making the Bible come alive.

Periodically, I feature book reviews and interviews with other authors, as well as helpful resources that I come across. (This breaks the “echo-chamber” phenomenon that’s in the bloodstream of the blogosphere today.)
