Writing, for Jason, is a way to express the ongoing story of theology. With every book or article, he hopes readers get a sense of the complexity of God and the necessity of faith. Captivated by the spiritual component of life, Jason loves to read everything from the Greek classics to the Sunday comics.

While serving as pastor of a Disciples of Christ congregation near Memphis, TN, Jason wrote a weekly column in a local newspaper called Sermon in a Nutshell and has had devotions published in The Secret Place, among others.

Jason holds a Bachelor’s in Social Work and Bible from Kentucky Christian University, a Master's in New Testament Theology from Johnson University and a Doctorate in Ministry from Sewanee: University of the South School o

John (a good friend of mine) and I were talking about the lesson which included the text in John’s gospel where it says, “Satan entered into him,” (referring to Judas). That’s when John said to me, “It doesn't seem fair, does it?” I have been pondering that comment ever since.(less)

“Your love, not your worry, is the most valuable thing any of us can give our children.”
Jason E. Royle, Jesus vs. Santa: Christmas Misunderstood

“These days, the only people who inquire about me are historians, theologians, and rebellious kids with black fingernails. They focus more on what I did than who I was, but at least I come to mind. The others—the good people of the world—aren’t curious. They take the traditional stories at face value. Even if they do possess a little curiosity, they never admit to the fact that they have questions: Who was Judas, really? How did he live? Why did he do it? Did he go to heaven—or straight to hell?”
Jason E. Royle, Judas: Hero Misunderstood

“Real decisions are not something we can pick up without taking time to hunt for them.”
