I hope all of you are enjoying the somewhat lazy days of summer. The heat and humidity of the South remind me of my trips to the Amazon jungle—without the breeze of being on the riverboat, without the piranhas, pink dolphins, and Irish green toucans. (Okay, so it’s kind of not at all the same.) For any of you who may have gone through my Bible studies on Ruth or Nehemiah, you’ve read … [Read more...]

In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right—a study on blessedness, a reflection on the Lord's Prayer, a meditation on lilies of the field.

Sharon’s letter grabbed my attention. She loved my books—couldn’t put them down. But she had never opened a Bible. “I can’t get into it,” she told me. And suddenly I knew what God was calling me to do. Sure I could introduce people to God through fiction, I could give them Scripture and lessons rooted in God’s word and I could speak to them through the backdoor of their hearts.
