A t some point, we must grasp the fact that ideas influence us in profound ways and good ideas really do renew your mind and revive your spirit. I will try to collect and link to some ideas worth noting. “All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.”--Flannery O'Connor
“And yet I decide, every day, to set aside what I can do best and attempt what I do very clumsily--open myself to the frustrations and failures of loving, daring to believe that failing in love is better than succeeding in pride.”--Eugene Peterson.
B o M. White was raised in Illinois and his work has taken him to over forty countries in both faith-based service and international education.
He's recently been an international educator at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and currently serves at the Center for Global Engagement at Baylor University. A student of leadership, he seeks to nurture a curiosity for ideas and culture within a passion for keeping grace at the center of life and work.
Frequently, he is told that his works should be continued in ongoing conversations involving ideas and grace over coffee.

"Engaging, endearing, and refeshingly down-to-earth, A Time to Question Everything invites the reader into one man's very real and very human life - and God's constant grace in the midst of it. The title is thankfully no misnomer: White embraces uncertainty with courage and charm, challenging our assumptions of what Christianity is like by giving scores of everyday examples. A wonderful and deeply edifying addition to the conversation on grace in the Christian life."
