Dear TED WINS. Army,
So as it turns out, I still have a blog, which I’m apparently updating monthly now. Here’s your monthly post: I watched the first hour of Crazy Heart last night and it blew my mind (will watch the last hour tonight). What’s Crazy Heart, and why did it blow my mind?

Dear TED WINS. Army,
Shameless Promotion: Buy my new book, Kinda Christianity, which satirizes emergent, but not nearly as well as the real website below.

Something I should say, right up front: This show was awesome, from start to finish. All of it. I know Iâ€™ve gone negative/snarky with a lot of this stuff, but this whole experience was great. Iâ€™ll elaborate below.
The Intersection is a rock club in Grand Rapids. Itâ€™s the kind of rock club that can have [...]
Introducing the official nutritional supplements of the TED WINS. Army: TED WINS. Nutrition (in conjunction with Nutrition53.)
The Backstory: Before Ted became the author of several award winning books on sports and the church, and before he became friends with Kevin DeYoung, he was a pretty unremarkable football player. As such, he has tried every muscle-building [...]

Zach: “1993 -rocking like [...]

Greetings TED WINS. Army. I’m blogging once a month now, from underneath an artificial sun lamp, in between tanning appointments and high doses of Vitamin D (note: for all non-Michigan readers, this is a reference to Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is another way of saying that Michigan really, really sucks in the wintertime and has [...]
Things I Learned While Reading The Official Bentley Magazine No. 30 Summer 2009 North America Edition
I recently spent a weekend at a nice cottage in Northern Michiagn, where I encountered the aforementioned magazine, which must have been left there by a previous resident, and which I eventually stole, having found it so unintentionally interesting/hilarious and delightfully over-written.

Chapter () Excerpt, Tentatively Titled “I Want to Go Home” or “Do You Guys See What You’re Doing to the Blinds?”
As you may or may not know, I’m in the throes of writing a book for Moody Publishers – part of which involves me listening to only Christian music for a whole year. As such, part of that commitment includes only going to Christian concerts.
