I am an acquisitions editor at Moody Publishers and a contributing editor at CTPastors.com, a Christianity Today publication for church leaders. While I’m not wrestling other people’s words into submission, I’m busy doing battle with my own. I’m the author of Your Future Self Will Thank You: Secrets to Self-Control from the Bible and Brain Science (Moody, 2019), Yawning at Tigers: You Can’t Tame God, So Stop Trying (Thomas Nelson, 2014), and Generation Ex-Christian: Why Young Adults Are Leaving the Church…and how to Bring Them Back (Moody, 2010) My work has appeared in numerous publications, including USA Today,CNN.com, The Huffington Post, Christianity Today, Books & Culture, and Relevant Magazine.
The poet John Milton once stated that his aim was “to justify the ways of God to man.” That’s a great mandate. Alas, I’m no Milton. And my goals aren’t so lofty. I’ll be happy if my writing opens your eyes a little wider to God’s beauty, and leaves you looking slightly more like his Son.
