William Graham Tullian Tchividjian (pronounced cha-vi-jin) is the Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. A Florida native, Tullian is also the grandson of Billy and Ruth Graham, a visiting professor of theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, and a contributing editor to Leadership Journal. A graduate of Columbia International University (philosophy) and Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando (M.Div.), Tullian has authored a number of books including Jesus + Nothing = Everything (Crossway). He travels extensively, speaking at conferences throughout the U.S., and his sermons are broadcast daily on the radio program LIBERATE. As a respected pastor, author, and speaker, Tullian is singularly and passionately devoted to seeing people set free by the radical, amazing power of God's grace. When he is not reading, studying, preaching, or writing, Tullian enjoys being with people and relaxing with his wife, Kim, and their three children—Gabe, Nate, and Genna. He loves the beach, loves to exercise, and when he has time, he loves to surf.
Why Do We Need Gospel Repetition?

One of the most common objections that those of us who are committed to preaching the gospel of grace week in and week out hear is, “Ok…I get it. Can we move on now?"

A Tale Of Two Lunches

The law can inform us of our sin but it cannot transform the sinner. Only the gospel can do that.

Is Your Life Defined by a Ladder or a Cross?

Do you read the Bible as a helpful tool in your climb up toward moral betterment or as the story of God coming down to broken, sinful people?

What Is Grace?

The cliché definition of grace is “unconditional love.” It is a true cliché, for it is a good description of the thing. Let’s go a little further, though.

We Don’t Find Grace, Grace Finds Us

The Gospel is not a story of God meeting sinners half-way. The news is so much better than that.

Jump to the Moon

Some think that those with a high view of the law are the legalists. But the opposite is true.

Reading The Bible Narcissistically

By looking at the Bible as if it were fundamentally about us, we totally miss the Point.

How Do I Know?

Bottom line: confidence in my transformation is not the source of my assurance. Rather, the source of my assurance comes from faith in Christ’s substitution.

A Father's Love

When I was 16, my parents kicked me out of the house. They had tried everything. Nothing worked.

Doesn’t Grace Undercut Ambition?

If it is true that Jesus paid it all, that “it is finished”, that my value, worth, security, freedom, justification, and so on is forever fixed, then why do anything?

Confessions of a Performancist

“Justification by works” assumes that my worth is measured by my performance. It conceals a dark and ghastly fear: “If I do not perform, I will be judged unworthy.”

Grace Prevails

There is nothing that is harder for us to wrap our minds around than the unconditional, non-contingent grace of God. In fact, it “defies our reason and logic,” upending our sense of fairness and offending our deepest intuitions, especially when it comes to those who have done us harm.

The Fruit of Grace

Grace alone produces the conditions that induce change, but grace is not conditional on change. It is pure gift.

Nothing to Lose, Free to Live!

The gospel alone liberates you to live a life of scandalous generosity, unrestrained sacrifice, uncommon valor, and unbounded courage.

Belovedness Engenders Love

Grace, not law, produces love-the love for God and neighbor that Jesus teaches. His love for us begets love from us.
