Welcome to the online world of Mike Frost

A place where I get to exercise my peculiar spiritual gift of stirring up trouble by questioning the things people usually take for granted.

I don’t do it to be hurtful. Honest. I guess I think that more information is never a bad thing, and starting conversations is always a good one. I welcome disagreement, as long as you know the difference between respectful debate and relentless troll-like putdowns. I don’t put up with the latter real well.

So join me as I share my thoughts, excerpt my upcoming writing, launch debates and generally rabble-rouse, all in a genuine attempt to figure out what the reign of Jesus looks like in earthy, real terms, right here, right now.

Renounce your white Jesus

You might have seen this recent photo of an anti-racism protester holding a sign that reads, "There are no white people in the Bible. Take all the time you need with this." At first, you'd think no one would need any time to digest that news. Of course, there are no...

Dinner Church, anyone?

There was quite a reaction to one of my recent blog posts about Fresh Expressions in Leicester, England, and how we need new ways of doing and being church today. I've had quite a lot of interest in what these new ways could look like. I've even been interviewed by...

God is a fountain of sending love

Who doesn’t love a fountain? Fountains are extravagantly, unceasingly festive. Whether it’s the continuous trickle of Rome’s Trevi fountain, or the exuberant bursts of the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, a fountain is a thing of joy. Some fountains are flashy and...

About Mike

I’m a 20-year veteran of the academy, but I still don’t call myself an academic. On my immigration forms I write “teacher” in the occupation box.
I’ve taught at Morling College in Sydney that whole time and am currently the head of the missiology department there.
My doctorate examined a mission-shaped approach to being and doing church, and I’ve written a bunch of books in that field. Some of them have even been popular. Thank you if you bought one.
I enjoy music by guys who can’t sing that great (Dylan, Cohen, Cave), hiking the national parks of North America (15, so far), and reading Flannery O’Connor. I’ve seen every film made by the Cohen Brothers and Stanley Kubrick and I still hold out hope that Terrence Malick has one more masterpiece in him.
I helped launch the Small Boat Big Sea community in Manly. I co-founded the Forge mission training network. I have won camel races in Kazakhstan, cliff-diving competitions in Thailand, and chess tournaments at the Kremlin. And I have spoken with Elvis (not all this might be true).
And through it all I have been loved by an amazing woman who has stood by me for over 30 years and whose capacity for endurance seemingly knows no bounds, my wife, Caz (this part is definitely true!).

If you thought the massive explosion that destroyed the port of Beirut was bad, it had an estimated yield of 500 tons. Whereas the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima 75 years ago today had an estimated yield of 15 KILOTONS!
Never again!

Got this request to write a guest post on my website. Do you think there’s any chance Bob didn’t really look all that closely at my site?!
