From the Heart: Where “Forgiveness” Crosses a Line

Here’s a letter we received recently. It’s a great testimony about bringing the Kingdom vision to a place where it is totally foreign. Dear Greg, I suspect that this email echoes some of the sentiments expressed by many others who contact you on a steady basis. By way of a

From the Heart: Paradigm Shift

I have in the past few months been introduced to your teaching, books and theology. Since I have been listening to your teachings online and reading/listening to some of your books “Myth of a Christian Nation” and “Myth of a Christian Religion” along with listening/reading books by Shane Claiborne, I have had

Encouragement from a Reader

From an Appreciative Reader

Greg,  I’m reading several of your articles this morning and I thought it would be appropriate to tell you how much of a blessing you are in my life. I’ve been hurting for so long as to being able to articulate all of the abhorances I’ve seen in the church in

Surrendering to God

Greg, I wanted to write you and let you know how much I admire you and Woodland Hills, and furthermore, how much I loved “Myth of a Christian Religion (and Nation as well). I long for the Kingdom to be manifested in the ways you describe and I know how

From a Retired US Air Force Master Sergeant

I saw Greg on CNN’s “God Warriors” (a great show) and I just took to heart everything he said. For the first time in my life, I felt like someone knew exactly how I felt. I am no theologian, so I could never express through scripture why I feel like

Hope in the Wilderness

Greg, I just wanted to thank you for all the work you put into both your writing & sermons. I have been a long term fan of your books, as together with Clark Pinnock’s writings (another favorite theologian) you convinced me of open theism some 8-10 years ago. However, my
