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.
Don’t Assume the Gospel, Preach the Gospel

Scripture is of no use to us if we read it merely as a handbook for daily living without recognizing that its principle purpose is to reveal Jesus Christ and his gospel for the salvation of sinners.

You Can’t Teach A Frog To Fly, So Stop Trying

A number of years ago, I realized that I was, as it were, trying to teach frogs to fly. Frogs can’t fly. Not only that, they get angry when you try to teach them.

Paul’s Downward Trajectory

Paul refers to himself numerous times as worth “imitating” when it comes to spiritual growth and maturity. What do we see when we look to Paul as an example?

The Subjective Power Of An Objective Gospel

Why does man feel so bad in the very age when, more than in any other age, he has succeeded in satisfying his needs and making the world over for his own use?

An Open Letter To Mr. Grace-Loving Antinomian

You puzzle me. How can you think about all that Christ has done for you, about your Father’s steadfast, immeasurable, extravagantly generous love and still live the way you do? Have you never considered how He labored day-after-day in His home, obeying His parents, loving His brothers and sisters so that you could be counted righteous in the sight of His Father?

Signing Off

Unbelief is the force that gives birth to all of our bad behavior and every moral failure.

Too Good To Be True

Forgiveness full and free is the hardest thing for us to believe as Christians. We think it’s a mark of spiritual maturity to hang onto our guilt and shame.

We Are Seasoned Do-It-Yourselfers

When will we learn that Jesus is not glorified by our “doing” things for him, but that He is glorified by our resting in, and receiving, what he’s done for us?

Making All Things New (Not All New Things)

There are many people who believe that God will destroy this present world—all of it—and start over, creating a new world from scratch. But that's a misunderstanding fueled in part by a questionable translation of 2Peter 3... (read more)

Give Them Grace

In a couple weeks the best parenting book ever (IMHO) will be available. Elyse Fitzpatrick and her daughter Jessica Thompson co-wrote a gospel-drenched book for parents entitled “Give Them Grace.” If you are a parent (as I am), there is no better book to read than this one.

Where to Look When You're in Trouble

The gospel is not a command to hang onto Jesus. Rather, it’s a promise that no matter how weak your faith may be in seasons of spiritual depression, God is always holding on to you.

Up And Out, Not In

We are renewed inwardly to the degree that we focus not on inward renewal but upward worship and outward service. The more you see that the gospel isn’t about you, the more spiritual you will become.

Gospel Tweets

I’m constantly trying to come up with different, concise, memorable ways to share God’s good news and Twitter challenges me to do this. It’s also a great way for me to “journal” what God’s teaching me about the gospel. (Read more)

How To Answer The Accuser

"If I were to trust in my own good deeds, or despair because I have done no good deeds, Christ would profit me neither way." ~ Martin Luther

The Best Is Yet To Come

The resurrection of Jesus is the greatest proof of God’s intention to revitalize this broken cosmos. His rising from the dead was just the beginning of the saving, renewing, resurrecting work of God that will have its climax in the restoration of the entire cosmos.

Jesus + Nothing = Everything

In the most difficult year of my life (2009), God revealed to me my own idols and helped me rediscover the emboldening, liberating power of the gospel.

Contend To The End

There are things worth dying for. The gospel is at the top. This is super important to remember at a time when so many preachers are calling into question (and even mocking) cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith.

The Gospel According to Jonah

We’re accustomed to describing the book of Jonah as that book about the guy who survived three days in a big fish. What if we began to understand it as a remarkable testimony to God’s extravagant, persevering grace, supremely demonstrated in the gospel of Jesus Christ?
