Dr. David S. Steele

Hi!  I’m David Steele.  I spend most of my time with my family and preparing to preach and teach God’s Word.   In my spare time, I’m generally cranking out miles on my road bike, working out on the treadmill, or playing tennis or golf.  I earned my BS and MA degrees from Multnomah University and Multnomah Biblical Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry from Bakke Graduate University in Seattle, Washington.   I serve as senior pastor at Christ Fellowship in Everson, Washington and spend a fair amount of time reading the dead guys like Jonathan Edwards, John Owen, John Bunyan, Martin Luther, J.C. Ryle, Charles Spurgeon, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Francis Schaeffer.  I also enjoy reading current authors like John Piper, John Frame, Bruce Ware, Steven Lawson, and N.D. Wilson.

My most recent book, Be Killing Sin: The Art of War on the Battlefield of Faith is available on Amazon.com. 

My book, Spineless: Restoring Courage and Conviction to the People of God is available on Amazon.com.

My book, The White Flag: When Compromise Cripples the Church is available on Amazon.com

My book, A Godward Gaze: The Holy Pursuit of John Calvin is available on Amazon.com.

 Bold Reformer: Celebrating the Gospel-Centered Convictions of Martin Luther is available online, as well.

The five most influential books in my life (outside of Scripture of course) include The Doctrine of God by John Frame, The Pleasures of God and Desiring God by John Piper, Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey, and The End for Which God Created the World by Jonathan Edwards.

My personal mission is to positively influence people, impact the world one person at a time and to glorify God by enjoying him forever.

I hope you enjoy my blog, Veritas et Lux (Truth and Light).  My aim is to inform readers about the Christian worldview, the high points of Reformed theology, leadership, and to review books that will benefit and encourage people.  I typically post 2-3 times a week.   To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS or email.

  1. Dave is a tremendous resource for all things theological. I appreciate all of his help and recommendations!

  2. I have just subscribed to this blog’s RSS feed. I came across your site today. The articles and book reviews are excellent. I am looking forward to reading more.


  3. Just read the book review on Rob Bell’s new book. So helpful. I know the theology is “off” but it is so subtle because he uses familiar Christian terminology though slanted the wrong way. I’m an MU seminary student trying to get a better grasp of theology. Thank you, Dr. Steele.

  4. Dr. Steele, I signed up for your blog and mistakenly gave you an incorrect email address. Please delete the Chaplain333 one. That is a mistake. I have signed up with my correct email address.

  5. David,

    My new friend and brother-in-the-battle! Greetings from Tecate. Thanks for being so gracious when Debbie and I were with you last month. I will follow your blog… keep studying, keep growing and by all means, keep on bloggin’…

  6. I just joined your blog audience! I was wondering:

    Have you posted anything regarding the sometimes fair and sometimes frustrating accusation that Christians don’t think? Anything that answers to:

    How have you personally answered this in your own walk; how do you encourage robust thinking in your church family; what have been your favorite sources of encouragement to love God with your mind?

    Thank you! Your blog looks to be a great encouragement!

  7. Dave, can you please give me the name of book you reviewed about the history of western religion and philosophy.
