For More Information About…

WRITING

Robert McKee is the writing nerd of our time. He appeals to the hyper-organized, mathematical part of my brain. My favorite books of his are Story and Dialogue.

SPIRITUALITY

Jonalyn Fincher is a pastor, philosopher, writer, and who I want to be when I grow up. She has a blog about Christian feminity, sexuality, and what it means to be fully human. Even if you’re not a Christian, you’ll love her. Read more at Ruby Slippers. She and her husband, Dale, share a ministry called Soulation as well.

If you want to get to know Jesus but don’t want to be caught dead in church, New York Times best-selling author, Tim Keller has written two of my favorite books. Prodigal God is for anyone: Christian or not. As my uncle would say, it’s a toilet read. It’s the gospel in a nutshell. Even if you think you know the gospel, read it. You might be surprised. For apologetic, philosophical geeks, The Reason for God is a thorough defense of the Christian faith. Not a nerd? It’s within your grasp too.

I’m partial to Biola Counseling Center because they’ve done so much for me. They’ve compiled a list of resources for just about anything you can think of here.

For information and resources for overcoming addiction, visit DrugRehab.com.

For those who want to learn about the harmful effects of pornography from people who’ve done their research and don’t have a religious motivation, check out Fight the New Drug. They have excellent resources for those who struggle with addiction to porn as well as a wealth of information about how porn, sexual dysfunction, and sexual exploitation intersect.
