Hello. I’m Tony Reinke, an author living in the Twin Cities. This website serves as the online home for my books and it serves as cork board for me to pin bits and pieces from my writing and research projects.
As one who trusts in Christ, my theological convictions fall under the categories of Evangelical, Reformed, credo-baptist, complementarian, continuationist, and Christian Hedonist, the glorious and profound biblical truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. I was happy to sign this document.
Married for seventeen years to the wife of my youth and my best friend (Karalee), we have three precious kids, mostly named after dead preachers.
My career in journalism launched as newsprint was going the way of the Titanic, so I jumped to digital and focused my attention to blogging in 2006 and social media in 2008. My official job title is “content strategist,” but I mostly consider myself an investigative journalist of practical theology, leveraging key resources from the greatest thinkers in church history to address the perplexing questions facing Christians today. I do all my own stunts (no research assistants, no ghostwriters, etc).
For four years I was honored to serve as the editorial, research, and travel assistant to C.J. Mahaney, an author and speaker in the D.C. area (2008–2011). I now work for author and speaker John Piper at Desiring God in Minneapolis (2012–). My work mixes theological research, content curating, writing, editing, interviewing, audio broadcasting, graphic design, and all things social media.
I’m the author of two books, Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books (2011) and Newton on the Christian Life: To Live Is Christ (2015). And I host two podcasts: Ask Pastor John and Authors on the Line.
For fun I enjoy dates with my wife, coffee in the morning, baseball in October, reading (all the time), photographing life, and administrating a little tribute site dedicated to my favorite Dutch theologian: hermanbavinck.org.
I always love hearing from readers. Often I can respond, but sometimes not.
