Welcome! Muchas gracias for checking out my blog. I am the author of The Feast: How to Serve Jesus in a Famished World (Leafwood, 2009). My second book, Heaven on Earth (Abingdon Press, 2012)–with Chris Seidman, is available everywhere books are sold. In the near future, I will publish a third book focusing on Islam and Christianity in America: How (Not) to Kill a Muslim (Cascade Books, 2015). One of my real passions is the work I do week in and week out: I am the preaching and teaching minister for the Otter Creek Church in Nashville, Tennessee. I enjoy speaking and teaching for churches, universities, and conferences all around the United States. I completed a doctorate degree from Columbia Seminary, where I studied the relationship of postmodernism and Christianity. I also teach adjunct in the Doctor of Ministry program at Lipscomb University. You might be interested in reading my contributing pieces to FOX NEWS (OpEd online) on matters of faith, culture, and ethics. In addition to other articles and essays (Missio Dei, The Contributor, Christian Standard), I am married to Kara—the daily source of joy in my life and the real theologian in the family. We have two life-giving sons: Lucas and Finn.
