Brian G. Hedges is the lead pastor for Fulkerson Park Baptist Church in Niles Michigan, and the author of Christ Formed in You: The Power of the Gospel for Personal Change, Licensed to Kill: A Field Manual for Mortifying Sin, Active Spirituality: Grace and Effort in the Christian Life, and Hit List: Taking Aim at the Seven Deadly Sins. Brian has also written for The Gospel Coalition, Christianity.com, PastorConnect, and Servants of Grace, and blogs at www.brianghedges.com. You can follow him on Twitter @brianghedges. Brian and his wife Holly have four children and live in South Bend. Brian enjoys reading more than just about anything else, but also like to play chess, watch good TV shows (e.g. Castle, Sherlock, Arrow, Fringe) and movies (e.g. Life is Beautiful, Tree of Life, Gravity). In the spring and summer (a short, but very welcome treat in Northern Indiana), enjoys playing golf and hanging out with family and friends around the grill. Brian has an abiding appreciation for John Calvin, John Owen, and C. S. Lewis, but also really enjoy comic books and virtually anything science fiction. Which means his sermons and books are riddled with theological quotes in Old English juxtaposed with allusions and illustrations from Narnia, Middle Earth, Star Wars, Star Trek, and The X-Files.
