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, Spineless: Restoring Courage and Conviction to the People of God is available at Amazon.
My book, The White Flag: When Compromise Cripples the Church is available at Amazon.
My book, A Godward Gaze: The Holy Pursuit of John Calvin is available at Amazon.
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.
