My review of Brian McLaren’s newest book Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha and Muhammad Cross the Road? is now on Emergent Village. This one is going to be another installment of much needed upheaval in the Christian world about how to relate to the other world religious traditions. Brian contends a strong, benevolent identity is a better path to navigate these essential relationships with everyone who inhabits this beautiful planet. I challenge anyone who reads to check out Brian’s blog and consider his approach. It is hard to dispute the fact Jesus embodies a strength and benevolence that approaches the other uncompromisingly and lovingly.
This is Jericho Books first full length publication. I’m excited for all that they are doing to cultivate a new approach to Christian publishing which is unafraid to ask the hard questions and face the reality of a flawed Christian existence.
Convergence is now available for purchase on Barnes & Noble! It’s also available on Amazon in print and for Kindle.
The second annual INSPY awards have been announced today. This has been another great year of promoting Christian writing by the ardent team led by Amy Riley. The INSPYs passion for quality Christian fiction and creative non-fiction is truly commendable.
I have been honored to participate as an Advisory Board member this year. Thanks to Amy, Hannah, Rel, Deb and Lydia for making this a pleasurable and successful venture. I appreciate your many labors as writers and connoisseurs of finer Christian writing.

After nearly thirty days of writing abandon, the moment I have waited for has come. I have finished my Nanowrimo 2010 madness. I am so happy to report that I completed the insane notion of 50,000 words in 30 days. More to come, but I had to shout it to the blogosphere before retiring to bed for much needed sleep.
