About this Blog

Thanks for stopping by Mustard Seed Faith–I’m glad you’re here! On this blog I write book and film reviews, as well as critical essays on topics relative to Christian culture, epistemology, theology, and whatever other subject may take my fancy at a given moment.

I began writing this blog in 2010 as an exercise in both obedience and self-discipline. Obedience because I felt a clear command to write. Self-discipline because I recognized the importance of writing in developing thoughts which otherwise might end up buried in a pile of scrap papers somewhere in my home. There’s still quite a pile of scrap papers, but there are fewer of them than there might be.

If you’ve read any of the posts here, then you know that those small scraps of paper have a habit of becoming rather substantial essays, which might be a happy metaphor for faith like a mustard seed; remember, everything big in faith begins with small, repeated obedience.

My name is Jeremy Rios. I pastor Burnaby Alliance Church in Burnaby, British Columbia. I studied Greek and Latin at Wheaton College and have an MDiv from Regent College. I’ve written three books, and if you’d like to know more about those projects you can either click on any of the book covers or visit my personal website at jeremyrios.com.

I also blog at  Toolshed Meditations. There I post short Scriptural devotions, devotional thoughts, great quotes from the books I read, and other things that I find challenging or encouraging.

Every blessing as you read!
