I’m a storyteller, pastor, community gardener, backyard chicken keeper and YMCA soccer coach. I’m married to Rebecca, am father to Maggie and Seth, and we live, love, work and play in the MLK neighborhood in Lexington, Kentucky, where we are part of the Fig Tree Collective. You can read more about our life on the Northside here.
My first book, The Story of God, the Story of Us is an attempt to tell the ‘Big Story’ that unfolds in the pages of the bible. Churches, small groups, colleges and seminaries use it as an introduction to the bible – both for folk who’ve never read the bible, and those who’ve been reading it for years. It was one of Relevant magazine’s Top Ten books of 2010, and is available as an unabridged audiobook, read by my wife Rebecca and myself. My second book, TEN: Words of Life for an Addicted, Compulsive, Cynical, Divided and Worn-out Culture, was also published with IVP. I also contributed to Banned Questions About Christians.
I love talking about the Big Story that the bible narrates and about embodying that Story in community, and have had the privilege of doing so at conferences, retreats, college campuses and churches all over the States. If you’re interested in inviting me to speak, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
