Welcome to a special edition of Beyond Evangelical, the only blog that tested positive for being his mother’s best-looking son.

After an eight-month break, I’m back. Your withdrawals have ended, and you can expect a fresh article every Thursday.

Before I get into the “urgent” news, one of the secret projects I’ve been working on during the long break is a new book which just released.

It’s called: HANG ON, LET GO: What to Do When Your Dreams Are Shattered and Life Is Falling Apart.

The cover is stunning and the interior design is elegant (thank you, Tyndale).

I am connected to almost 500 people on this medium (pun intended). My question is, how many actually see these updates? Is it worth continuing to post here or not?

If you see this update, react by clapping below. Thanks!

Readers frequently ask me if they can meet me for coffee or tea and “pick my brain,” receiving my advice on a certain matter.

I never liked the image that this phrase conveys (I don’t care for birds or any other creature picking at the flesh of my cerebrum), but I get it.

In that connection, I love sharing what I’ve learned (and am learning) with others.

I’m a problem-solver by nature. A good chunk of my Christian life has been spent seeking solutions to the struggles we all have and then sharing my discoveries with my readers. …

After doing hundreds of interviews over the years, a number of people have told me that the recent interview I did on THE INSURGENCE PODCAST with an Academic Dean at Asbury Theological Seminary was the best one yet.

I’ve NEVER been asked some of the questions Brian asked. And I trust you will find them personally valuable.

Beware those who confuse what they believe God WANTS with what God WILL DO. False prophetic words cannot be justified. Ever. Period. There are many so-called “prophets” who predicted a Trump second term. And now, instead of apologizing, they are blaming God’s people. I wrote about this specific problem on December 3, 2020 in “Prophetic Nonsense” — https://frankviola.org/2020/12/03/propheticnonsense/


Welcome to another Thursday UNFILTERED blog post, the only blog that gives you a 2-hour consultation with Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer to solve all your legal troubles.

So we’ve made it through the first half of 2020 (applause).

On January 2, 2020, I wrote the article A Reset for 2020.

None of us anticipated that 2020 would bring a global pandemic, a national lockdown, an economic crisis, riots in the streets, and civil unrest.

Not to mention the cancellation of cool events we had planned. (Or events like little Sally Ann’s friend’s birthday party that you never wanted to attend in…

Welcome to another Thursday UNFILTERED blog post, the only blog that ships a bottle of Frankie V’s Orange Habanero Sauce to your mailbox. Okay, that’s not true, but it’s one of the few blogs that doesn’t repeat the tired talking points of the Conservative Right or the Progressive Left.

I’ve written some long, teary articles on how to stay sane during the COVID-19 crisis. They’re all contained in my Survival Guide, which the masses haven’t read yet because it was gratis. (In general, people don’t value what’s given away without charge. They take it for granted. Sad but true.)


In PROLIFIC, I give away the secret sauce of how I’ve managed to write over 1,000 blog posts, published over 14 published books and over 10 more self-published books, as well as create over 200 podcast episodes. If you want to level up in 2021 and become more productive, more creative, and meet all your goals, go to http://ProlificCourse.com. You have the course for life and you take it at your own pace.
