My name is Brian Jones and I love helping people experience the life-changing power of the Bible.
The Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard said that it is a dreadful thing to be left alone with the New Testament – not because it is so boring – but because it is so dangerous.
Skeptics must tread lightly, as should Christians, for when the Bible is allowed to speak for itself – stripped of centuries of bias, ignorance, and tradition – it obliterates safe interpretations and eviscerates conviction-less belief. It heals hearts and gives hope for the future. There is nothing more astonishing in life than hearing God speak to you through His word.
Each weekday I post original articles designed to help you experience the Bible like never before. They focus on the following areas:
- Unique Insights – Fascinating background and history that make the Bible come alive
- Living It Out – Practical advice on how to live out the Bible’s teachings in everyday life
- Holy Crap – Biblical challenges to popular Christian beliefs and practices
- Honest Answers – Honest answers to tough questions about the Bible
- For Skeptics – Evidence of the trustworthiness of the Bible for those who don’t believe
- Worth Sharing – Humorous articles and videos to pick up your day
- Sermons – Videos of my previous weekend’s teaching on the Bible
ABOUT BRIAN JONES
Brian believes the Bible is God’s inspired word and is completely authoritative for all Christians (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21). He believes it reveals the nature and purpose of the universe, God’s plan for humanity, and gives practical steps for how to make every area of our lives work as God intended.
Brian is the founding Senior Pastor of Christ’s Church of the Valley, an innovative multi-site church of 2,000+ in the suburbs of Philadelphia. He’s a graduate of Cincinnati Christian University (B.A.) and Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Div.). He’s the author of three books (and a forthcoming title with InterVarsity Press in the Fall of 2017), and writes practical articles on leadership and preaching for Senior Pastors at SeniorPastorCentral.com.
