Jared Byas


I want to take a moment to introduce to you Jared Byas.

Jared has been my friend ever since I found him along the side of a road in a basket and took him in, fed him, and clothed him.

Here’s a little bit more about Jared.

Awesome Point 1: He’s awesome.

Awesome Point 2: He wrote Genesis for Normal People with me.

Awesome Point 3: He’s like half my age but way more mature than I am.

Awesome Point 4: He is a seriously entrepreneurial, out of the box, visionary kind of thinker about the present and future of Christian faith.

Awesome Point 5: He’s been writing weekly on the blog on all sorts of awesome topics, including:

Bernie Sanders

We Literally Don’t Read the Bible Literally

Rachel Held Evans & John Piper

Jesus Wants us to Be Served

We received feedback that it’s not super clear when an article is written by me and when it’s it actually an interesting article written by Jared.

So from now on we’ll have by Jared Byas at the very top of of his posts with a link to this bio page.
