Brad Jersak (PhD) is an author and teacher based in Abbotsford, BC.
He is on faculty at Westminster Theological Centre (Cheltenham, UK), where he teaches New Testament and Patristics. He also serves as adjunct faculty with St Stephen's University (St. Stephen, NB).
He is also the senior editor of CWR (Christianity Without the Religion) Magazine, based in Pasadena, CA.
His heart is to share the good news that God is Love and that God's love was shown to us perfectly in Jesus of Nazareth. Through his books and seminars, Brad teaches the contemplative practice of "listening prayer" and more recently, "The Beautiful Gospel" (or 'Gospel in Chairs').
Brad's foundational book, "Can You Hear Me? Tuning in to the God who speaks" trains readers in the ways of "Listening Prayer." This book provides biblical teaching and 33 practical exercises for tuning in to God's voice. His most recent book, "A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel," seeks to detoxify our images of God to present the Incarnation of Christ as our clearest vision of the nature of God as love.
