Hello. I’m Tony Reinke, a writer living in the Twin Cities. This website is a home for my books and a corkboard for bits pulled from my current writing and research projects.
As one who trusts in Christ, my theological convictions would fall under the categories of Evangelical, Reformed, credo-baptist, complementarian, continuationist, and Christian Hedonist.
Married for sixteen years to the wife of my youth and my best friend (Karalee), we have three precious kids, most named after dead preachers. Though I wouldn’t survive long in the wild, I consider myself agrarian (a farm boy from Nebraska).
My career in journalism launched as newsprint was going the way of the Titanic, so I went 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 pressing needs Christians face today. I do my own stunts (no research assistants or ghostwriters).
For four years I served 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 research, content curation, writing, radio, and social media. I’m the author 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, making pointless things in PhotoShop, and administrating a little tribute site dedicated to my favorite Dutch theologian: hermanbavinck.org.
I always appreciate Tweets and emails from readers. Often I can respond, but sometimes not.
