About Tony Reinke

Hello and thanks for stopping by the site!

My name is Tony Reinke, an author and non-profit investigative journalist in the Twin Cities, focused on, more than anything else, better understanding life in the new digital media climate, and how to flourish in an age saturated by social media, images, audio, and video. What are the costs and where are the challenges? And where are the new opportunities?

I have four solo-authored books:

But mostly I write articles, edit books, and host the popular Ask Pastor John podcast, dedicated to questions of Christian theology and ethics. For fun, I manage a tribute site to my favorite Dutch theologian (hermanbavinck.org).

My Background

I’m a Christian, more specifically, an Evangelical, Reformed, credo-baptist, complementarian, continuationist, 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 eighteen 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 sports journalism launched just as newsprint was going the way of the Titanic, so I jumped out of the industry in the late 1990s and then jumped into the exciting new digital world of blogging and social media in 2006. Writing online for fun eventually led to my first full-time ministry gig, serving 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. Today I 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).
