What Is the Bible?

New York Times Bestseller Get the Book: Amazon / B&N / BAM / Indiebound / iBooks / Google Play Digital Book Excerpt: Start Reading Now Some people see the Bible as an outdated book of primitive, barbaric fairy tales that we have moved beyond. And so they ignore it, missing all of the progressive and enlightened ideas that first entered human history through the writers of the Bible—ideas and ideals we still fall far short of, ideas and ideals that are still way ahead of our present consciousness and practice. And then thereRead more

Everything is Spiritual 2016 Tour Film

When I did the first Everything is Spiritual tour and film in 2006 (You can view it here) I remember thinking “I wonder if I’ll ever do a part 2…” I knew that if there was going to be follow up, the ideas would have to be really compelling and it would take a long time to put it together and of course I’d need a new white board. Ten years later here it is my friends, Everything is SpiritualRead more

Live at Largo

What can I say about Largo? This little club in West Hollywood is jammed full of magic. They don’t allow phones and cameras, which creates this sense of everybody being there in the moment and nowhere else. Which is why so many of us-from comedians to musicians to actors to yours truly-love working out new material at Largo. Come early, enjoy the DJ, and then stay afterwards so we can say hello… Next Largo Date: October 4, 2017 / get tickets DownloadRead more

Launching Rockets

Launching Rockets 17 Observations On Being A Parent Over the past few years when I was speaking to a group I began to notice how often people would have questions about being a parent. I would give my standard response– My kids are still at home so I’m the last person who should be giving parenting advice And then I’d pause and add That said, I do have some observations… and everybody would laugh and then I’d riff on aRead more

Millones Cajones Free Novel

This is my first novel. It’s about a motivational speaker who has a breakdown and grows a beard and gains weight and checks himself into a treatment center. There’s a character named Claudia who drives a Ford pickup and another one named Faruq and-yes, it’s a little bizarre. Haha. It was so much fun to write. I laughed so much while writing it and then hearing about how many people have laughed while reading it has been incredibly rewarding. YouRead more

Or where you live, or what you lookRead more

The Gods Aren’t Angry Tour Film

Purchase a Digital Download of this Film Where did the first caveman or cavewoman get the idea that somebody, somewhere existed who needed to be worshiped, appeased, and followed?

Part 1: Someone Wrote Something

I’ve had a number of conversations recently that somehow led to the Bible. I say somehow because these weren’t conversations with particularly religious friends, and yet what they talked about was their interest in the Bible.  For some, they readily acknowledge that this particular library of books (Yes, it’s a library. More on that later…) has deeply shaped western civilization in countless ways and yet they haven’t the foggiest notion what it’s actually about other than vague references to David killing GoliathRead more

The Zimzum of Love

Order: Amazon / iBooks / Barnes & Noble / Books-a-Million / Indiebound My wife Kristen and I sat side by side every day for a year and half and wrote this book. It started with this word zimzum which I stumbled upon while reading something about spiritual teachers in the 1500’s and when I learned what it referred to and shared that with Kristen we both thought that sounds a lot like marriage. The more we talked about it the more ideas we had until we looked at eachRead more

What We Talk About When We Talk About God

Order: Amazon / iBooks / Barnes & Noble / Books-a-Million / Indiebound I realize that when I use the word God in the title of this book there’s a good chance I’m stepping on all kinds of land mines. Is there a more volatile word loaded down with more history, assumptions, and expectations than that tired, old , relevant, electrically charged, provocative, fresh, antiquated yet ubiquitous as ever, familiar/unfamiliar word God? As a pastor over the past twenty years, what I’ve seen again and again is people who want toRead more

Love Wins

Order: Amazon / iBooks / Barnes and Noble First, I believe that Jesus’ story is first and foremost about the love of God for every single one of us. It is a stunning, beautiful, expansive love, and it is for everybody, everywhere. There are a growing number of us who have become acutely aware that Jesus’s story has been hijacked by a number of other stories, stories Jesus isn’t interested in telling, because they have nothing to do with what heRead more

Drops Like Stars

Order: Amazon / iBooks / Barnes and Noble When we encounter pain and suffering, our lives are disrupted. Our normal paths and expectations come to a halt. Suffering forces us to take a new path, to create new expectations. It is the difficult and the unexpected, and maybe even the tragic, that opens us up and frees us to see things in new ways. Many of the most significant moments in our lives come not because it all went right butRead more

Jesus Wants to Save Christians

Order: Amazon / iBooks / Barnes and Noble written with Don Golden. We want you to discover the Bible as its own best commentary.  Once justice is seen as the thread woven into the fabric of biblical history, the whole Bible becomes much clearer. Justice is the issue when God redeems Israel from Pharaoh. Justice is at the heart of the Sinai law and justice is what Israel must show the world as a kingdom of priests. Justice is theRead more

Sex God

Order: Amazon / iBooks / Barnes and Noble This is actually about That. Whether it’s what we do with our energies or how we feel about our bodies or wanting to have control in relationships or trying to recover from heartbreak or dealing with our ferocious appetites or the difficulty of communicating clearly with those we love or longing for something or someone better, much of life is in some way connected with our sexuality. And when we begin to sortRead more
