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.
Inexhaustible Grace For An Exhausted World

It is high time for the church to honor its Founder by embracing sola gratia anew, to reignite the beacon of hope for the hopeless and point all of us bedraggled performancists back to the freedom and rest of the Cross.

Preachers Should Be Like Naughty Kids

Unless the faith of preachers is in Christ alone–-and not in any other person, ecclesiastical institution, theological system, moral prescription, or master recipe for human loveliness–they will be of very little use in the pulpit.

The Burned Over Place

The law is like a brush-fire. I cannot escape it. But if I stand in the burned-over place, where law has already burned its way through, then I will not get hurt.

Presumption Produces Self-Deception

Our presumption of “okayness” leads to a self-deception that robs us of the joy of our salvation. Besides, our so-called progress isn't as impressive as we think it is.

On To The Next One…

You might make some great strides this year. I’m hoping to. There are a lot of improvements I’m hoping to make over the next 12 months. But don’t be surprised a year from now when you realize that you’ve fallen short…again.

Don’t You Worry Child

Having talked to many, many Christians over the years, I know for a fact that a lot of them think that God is perpetually disappointed with them.

What Kind Of A Pastor Do Sinners Need?

When sinners are drowning (and trust me…they are!), don’t tell them to paddle harder and kick faster. Throw them the life-line of amazing grace.

Are Christians Still Totally Depraved?

Believe it or not, this is an important question. It’s not simply a theological question. It’s a theological question that has profound practical implications.

All Of Grace

When the conscience has been thoroughly frightened by the Law it welcomes the Gospel of grace with its message of a Savior.

Is “sinner” is an appropriate term to describe Christian identity?

Moralism Vs. Jesus-Centered Preaching

To read and preach the Bible as if it were fundamentally about us and what we should do is to miss the point of the Bible entirely.

Freedom In Smallness

The world tells us in a thousand different ways that the bigger we become, the freer we will be. The gospel tells us just the opposite.

Freed From The Prison Of Why

God sent His Son not only to suffer in our place but also to suffer with us. Our merciful friend has been through it all. He is with us right now! And while He may not deliver us from pain and loss, He’ll walk with us through it.

Minimizing Suffering Minimizes The Cross

All of our attempts (well intentioned as they may be) to minimize suffering reveal our universal, fatal love affair with control and law.

How Are You Hiding From God?

Almighty God desires simply to be known as the giver of the gift of absolute grace. To this we say “no”. Then the relationship is destroyed [by our 'morality'] just as surely as it is by our immorality.

You Believe In Karma

Moralists interpret misfortune as the karmic result of misbehavior. This for that. “You failed to obey God, so He gave your child an illness.” Such rule-based economies of punishment and reward may be the default mode of the fallen human heart, but that doesn’t make them any less brutal!

Dating Your Wife?

My good friend Justin Buzzard called to tell me that he was writing a book (in his exact words) on “how to date your wife.” Somewhat taken aback, I said, “Your writing a book on how to date my wife?”

Discipleship Depends on God

Christian discipleship is a process of paying more and more attention to God’s righteousness and less and less attention to our own

What Preoccupation with Spiritual Growth Produces

Personal development is certainly not wrong, but it is misleading—and it can be very disappointing—to make it our preeminent goal.

200-Proof Grace

Are you busy mixing or do you drink grace straight? Are you always in a spiritual hurry or is your soul free to rest and raise a glass?
