about

While a native Californian, I’ve called Chicago home since 2000.  I’m wonderfully married to Cyd and have two boys, Soren and Tennyson.

Besides being a pastor, professor, and theologian, most of all, I’m just trying to hack my faith so that it will work in the real world.

I serve as a co-pastor at Life on the Vine.  I co-authored, Prodigal Christianity, with David Fitch, and recently published Transcending Subjects: Augustine, Hegel, and Theology.

I am also affiliate professor of theology at Northern Seminary.  You can follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

Please sign up for a for the answer to Does God Even Like Me? The good news of not being alone—something my wife and I are working on. 

My writing focuses on the church, theology and philosophy, politics and culture.  My goal is that everything here would make theology and mission accessible for everyone.   I’m all over the place but hopefully you’ll find some of it interesting and helpful.

I post twice a week (roughly) and I would love to have you join the conversation.

Subscribe and I’ll send you Does God Even Like Me? The good news of not being alone.
