If you enjoy a podcast, the best gift you can give this Christmas is a review.

Recently, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing several other podcast hosts on the Pastor Writer podcast. These days, there are some great podcasts for Christian writers.

Why Every Millennial Man Should Reread The Samson Story

I like to imagine him in Ray-Bans, a man bun, and a CrossFit t-shirt, hiking through...

“The modern hero is the outsider. His experience is rootless. He can go anywhere. He belongs nowhere. Being alien to nothing, he ends up being alienated from any type of community based on common tastes and interests. The borders of his country are the sides of his skull.” ― Flannery O’Connor, The Catholic Novelist in...

Operation Finale: A Gripping Depiction of Mundane Evil

The Image of Adolph Eichmann

It tells the story of a secret Israeli operation to infiltrate Argentina and capture Adolf Eichmann, a former Nazi SS officer, credited for his influential role in planning and directing the Final Solution, the German execution of more than six million Jews. After the war,...

4 Questions I Wish I Could Ask Jordan Peterson About Faith and Christianity

Plus, 18 relevant articles and videos

Central to the plot of Ayn Rand’s classic 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged, is the repeatedly posed question, “Who is John Galt?” The novel is about an increasingly tyrannical government undermined by a mysterious individual who workes to sabotage the bureaucracy by helping entrepreneurs and business owners vanish from the workforce; Galt covertly subverts the system...

Eugene Peterson at The Writer’s Symposium

The ordination of writers

It’s hard to overestimate the impact Eugene Peterson has had on me as a pastor and as a writer. This video is a conversation with Peterson and Dean Nelson at the Point Loma Nazarene University’s Writer’s Symposium by the Sea in 2007. More than writing, Peterson offers deep wisdom into the lifestyle of the pastor...

The Writing Life of Craig Keener

From research to writing to editing

I’ve recently been working through Craig Keener’s 4-part commentary on the Book of Acts. I’ll be preaching through the Book of Acts this summer and fall. Keener’s book is remarkable and massive. I once heard a scholar suggest that it will be the most important work on Acts for at least the next 100 years....

This Rock On My Desk: Nineveh and Tarshish

The choice we must keep making.

There is a round rock that sits on my desk between my screen and the keyboard. Honestly, it’s a little strange because it could easily be mistaken for a small potato. But it’s a rock. A good friend brought it back from a service trip to Iraq. He was part of a team taking food...

Frederick Buechner on Writing, Church, And Finding Your Voice

Why finding your voice matters as much in the pulpit as on the page

Below is a 4-part video series of Walter Brueggemann interviewing author and ordained minister, Frederick Buechner. The interview covers a wide range of topics from Buechner’s seminary experience to the importance of the pastor’s voice. “With a religious book it is less what we see in it than what we see through it that matters.” — Frederick...

Thoughts On Being A Bi-Vocational Pastor

How I’ve come to love being a working pastor.

This summer will be our fifth anniversary of planting Bent Oak Church. For the entire five years, I have been a bi-vocational pastor. It might be more accurate to say, for most of it, I’ve been a volunteer. A year ago the church began to pay me for one day a week. Of course, Sundays...

In a world of individualized truth and hyper-defensiveness, we’ve lost the ability to decide what to do with our instincts. We have lost the wisdom necessary to discern when to trust and when to reject our own impulses. Most men don’t know the difference. Some may have never even considered their instincts could be wrong.

It’s time to put your instincts to a test. It’s time to ask them some tough questions. When you force your instincts to explain themselves, they suddenly lose some of their power to control you. This is the path to something better. Something more than what you are. It is possible.

So, what are these instincts, robbing so many men of a better manhood? I want to offer you five of these masculine instincts and five biblical men who have struggled with them, men who by their success and failures can show us a better way. They are our guides to a better manhood.

I'm kicking off a new series of episodes on The 5 Masculine Instincts. This week we take a look at the association of men and meat, why masculinity has become so controversial, and the experience of male malaise.
