Hi, I’m Kevin Halloran.
The purpose of my writing and speaking is to encourage, equip, and empower you to live a Bible-saturated, gospel-centered, Christ-exalting life. I’m no expert at this—just a pilgrim on a journey to the celestial city trying to please his Lord.
I am a graduate of Taylor University (BA) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (MDiv) and now serve with Open the Bible, a ministry dedicated to proclaiming Christ through media, mobilizing believers in evangelism, and equipping leaders for the church. I live near Chicago, Illinois, with my wife and daughter. I serve as Project Manager for the Open the Bible for Leaders training.
My first book is When Prayer Is A Struggle: A Practical Guide for Overcoming Obstacles in Prayer (P&R). (Preview Chapter 1: “I Forget Why Prayer Matters.”)
I’ve been featured on The Gospel Coalition (in English and Spanish), WordPartners, For the Church, Banner of Truth, ChurchLeaders.com, Christianity.com, Unlocking the Bible, The Gospel Project blog, and several other places.
My prayer for blog readers is the same as Paul’s for the Philippians:
“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11
Soli Deo Gloria.
