Ever feel the Bible is…

  • Hard to understand?
  • Boring?
  • Irrelevant?
  • The God revealed is not the same today?

You are not alone. Join me in my quest to:

  • Understand it.
  • Make it relevant.
  • Make it personal.
  • Live the stories. Find the drama and the beauty.
  • And, most importantly, meet the God revealed in its pages.

Now that you are here, stay awhile with me and gain new insights, pick up some spiritual tools, or take a moment to let your imagination enter a story and be inspired to seek the Lord in new ways.

Has Jesus’ Death Become Too Mundane?

Do we suffer from “hindsight bias”?
