Find out why discipleship isn’t working today. That’s what I explore in my eBook, Discipleship in Crisis. You can’t buy the book. There’s only one way to get it — by subscribing to my Patheos blog below. Read more

Stephen Westerholm has just released an interesting new commentary on the book of Romans. It’s called Romans: Text, Readers, and the History of Interpretation. I caught up with Stephen to discuss his new book. Enjoy! There are countless books on Romans. Why did you choose to take the time to write yours? That’s a very good question! I was writing a book on important figures in the history of biblical interpretation (Reading Sacred Scripture, to which my son Martin also... Read more

3 Important Updates: * I continue to completely rewrite, revise, and expand my very old — and deeply flawed – book The Untold Story of the New Testament Church. If you don’t have the old version, DO NOT buy it. Wait until the new version comes out in 2024 or 2025. Go here for the details. It will answer your questions about the project. I’ve been working on the revised edition virtually every day since November 2021. * My Vision for a... Read more

For the Fame of His Name: Rethinking Church and Missions for the 21st Century is a new book by cross-cultural missions trainer G. W. Steel. I first met GW at my SCRIBE Authors Training in Orlando (the training has since moved to an online training that anyone can take from the comfort of their own home). Steel pastored churches in the Midwest for many years before moving to SE Asia. He lived there for over a decade, training mission candidates... Read more

For some reason, a number of people have gotten the idea that my new book is only for leaders. Not true. 48 Laws of Spiritual Power is not just for people who are in professional or non-professional ministry. It’s for EVERY serious Jesus follower. If you’re a Christian, your entire life is a mission trip. All believers have a ministry of some kind. Even if it’s sharing the gospel with another person. Also, in order to live the Christian life,... Read more

Welcome to another Thursday UNFILTERED blog post, the only blog that warns that a duck’s opinion of you is heavily influenced by whether or not you have bread. If you were having withdrawals because you didn’t see an email from me last Thursday, nothing to worry about. We skipped it due to the news I’m about to share. I’m happy to announce that my new book just dropped. It’s called 48 Laws of Spiritual Power: Uncommon Wisdom for Greater Ministry... Read more

Quick note that if you’re a pastor, evangelist, missionary, teacher, or a person in any other kind of service to God, you’ll be interested in my new book. It’s called 48 Laws of Spiritual Power: Uncommon Wisdom for Greater Ministry Impact. The cover is exquisite (thank you, Tyndale). The Taste Test Sampler, which you can download, will tell you what the book is and isn’t about. For instance, it doesn’t teach you how to zap demons and do great wonders... Read more

Holly Beers has written an interesting book called A Week in the Life of a Greco-Roman Woman. I caught up with Holly recently and interviewed her on the book. Enjoy! How long did it take you to write this book? I wrote most of it in the summer of 2018, though my research and accumulation of sources began a few years earlier. I knew that I would need to have my research and basic organization in place before I could... Read more

The CSB Spurgeon Study Bible is an astonishing new Bible. I have the premium goatskin edition, which is simply elegant. The black leather edition has an inscription of the “Prince of Preacher’s” own signature on the front cover. This is a well-made premium Bible. The entire Bible contains study notes from the great Spurgeon. Some of them are photos of his handwritten notes and sermon outlines. The notes are fascinating and the handwritten highlighted parts are beautifully displayed in green... Read more

James L. Papandrea has written a book entitled A Week in the Life of Rome (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2019). Recently, I caught up with James to discuss the book. Enjoy! How long did it take you to write this book? Well, in one sense it took me my whole career, since I think everything I’ve ever studied has prepared me to write this book. My PhD is in the history and theology of the early Church, as well... Read more

Dyann Shepard has released a new book. It’s called Wisdom: Capturing the Power of Our Words. I connected with Dyann at SCRIBE, my training for authors, which is now completely online. Recently, I caught up with Dyann to discuss her new book. Enjoy! This is a study about the relationship of growing in God’s wisdom to the power of our words. How did you find the lives of the women who first went through the study were benefited? We actually... Read more
