*clears throat* Listen up all you fellow lugubrious lemmings. Frankie V. here slinging some straight talk your way about this upcoming book of mine. Expecting an early 2025 release. Yea, not long after *cough* is sworn in as US President. The cover? Some of you helped me decide on it. So thanks.

Join over 2,000 hungry Christians just like you who have completed Frank Viola’s “How to Live by the Indwelling Life of Christ” online discipleship course.

How do... Read more

After penning over 20 books, this pattern has become clear: I write the book I want to read but that doesn’t exist. Every Christian will face crises in their lives. Relational, Financial, or Health-related. If your life is easy right now, there will be a crisis to come. And they usually lead to a spiritual crisis. This is the book I couldn’t find (yea, there are tons of books on suffering, trials, etc., but none without prescriptions that go beyond... Read more

Just a few steps below Jimi Hendrix, three of the world’s greatest guitar players are Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck. Apparently, Clapton (who is still alive at the time of this writing) has a spiritual side. The dude grew up in a small English town, going to a normal Church of England congregation like a good little boy. In his own words, he had a “curiosity about spiritual matters” but his searching led him away from organized religion... Read more

Jimi Hendrix has often been described as a “freaking guitar god.” The greatest to ever pick up the instrument, according to pretty much everyone with ears and a brain. But here’s something you might not know about the legendary Seattle stoner – the dude had a serious spiritual side. Hendrix was always going on about how his music was meant to be spiritual, not just some trippy background noise while people got high and zoned out. “This isn’t a game,... Read more

Recently, Thomas Nelson sent me NKJV, Large Print Verse-by-Verse Reference Bible, Maclaren Series in Genuine Leather. This is a perfect-sized Bible. The genuine leather is marvelous, and the comfort print in large font is superb. (I have the brown leather cover, but it also comes in black.) I particularly like the teal subheadings and chapter and verse numbers. The Scripture references are laid out nicely on the bottom of each page. The NKJV is one of my favorite editions. With... Read more

Clint Burnett has released a new book called Paul and Imperial Divine Honors: Christ, Caesar, and the Gospel. This book is scholarly and isn’t aimed at the casual or popular reader. Burnett’s thesis aligns with my own conclusion that Paul embedded remarks aimed at the Roman Empire and its imperial cult throughout his epistles. This is one of the reasons why the early believers were considered Insurgents. (Which is a reality being restored today.) Here is a great description of... Read more
