Here’s an excerpt from the Foreword by Leonard Sweet . . .
Everything in life has a backstory. The French word provenir means “a coming forth from, a chronology, or lineage.”
It even implies custody, a history of ownership or belonging. As a noun, it suggests there is a backstory for something we hold dear, a primal origin or a source. The word is used most typically in our culture for the his(story) of an artifact or antique.
We as Christians have a backstory too, one that tells of our source of life and our lineage as people of God—an extraordinary lineage of grace and wonder.[Continue Reading…]
The following is an excerpt from my book, Jesus Now.
As the Head, Jesus Continues His Earthly Ministry
Luke began the book of Acts with this remark:
The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when He was taken up to heaven. (1:1–2)
Notice the word began. The “first account” Luke was referring to is the gospel of Luke. The implication of this sentence is that Luke’s new volume, Acts, is a record of what Jesus continued to do and teach from His ascension onward. [Continue Reading…]

I caught up with Justin to ask him about his new books.

Instead of asking, “what are your books about,” I’m going to ask the question that’s behind that question. And that unspoken question is, “how are readers going to benefit from reading your books?”
Justin Holcomb: Readers will benefit by enjoying an accessible overview of the main heresies, creeds, confessions, catechisms, and councils of Christian history. It is an introduction to some of the most important theological developments in the Christian tradition.[Continue Reading…]
The following is an excerpt from the Study Guide to my book, Jesus Now.
When I was a young believer, I committed to memory Hebrews 4:12:
“For the word of God is living and operative and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow, and able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
Admittedly, I had no clue what “the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow” meant.[Continue Reading…]
The following is an excerpt from my upcoming book, Jesus Now.
I want to explore the human conscience and its role in our walk with God in a bit more depth here than I did in chapter 1.
Think of the conscience as a window by which the light of heaven shines through to our spirits. Through the conscience, the Holy Spirit corrects, reprimands, and makes us feel uneasy when we take a step that contradicts our new nature in Christ.
A believer’s conscience reproves sin and approves righteousness. In order to walk in the Spirit, we must learn how to be sensitive to the voice of our consciences. For the Christian, the conscience is an inward monitor that alerts us to our spiritual condition.
The conscience bears witness to God’s will (Rom. 2:15; 2 Cor. 4:2), and it testifies to the truth (Rom. 9:1; 2 Cor. 1:12; 5:11). Paul and Peter exhorted believers to follow their consciences (Rom. 13:5; 1 Cor. 10:25–29; 1 Pet. 2:19). The New Testament describes five different states of the human conscience:[Continue Reading…]
