“I didn’t write this book as an aspiring author, but as a desperate pastor”
Deron Spoo is the lead pastor of First Baptist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Since he became pastor in 2000, Deron has helped First Tulsa transition from simply being a downtown church to becoming a regional church committed to urban ministry. His television devotionals, First Things First, reach 100,000 people each week. Deron is a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and is a native Texan. He and his wife Paula have three children.
Recently Pastors Casey Cariker and Deron Spoo were able to chat about the unique challenges of pastoring a downtown church, and his new book, The Good Book: 40 Chapters That Reveal the Bible’s Biggest Ideas. The Good Book offers a big-picture view of the Bible that will deepen readers’ enthusiasm for Scripture and give them confidence to apply it’s principles to their lives.
