Friday, July 6thWhatever the Cost


Dr. Tim interviews the Benham brothers about their newest book, "Whatever the Cost."

(written by Jason)
Oh snap!  I have to write a bio on my brother.  How do you say “awkward” in Espanola?

I know David pretty well.  We shared a womb, we shared a room, and now we share an office.  It’s not that I want to be around him that much, it’s just that we’ve found we can accomplish much more by sticking together.  For all you women who just said, “Awe, that’s so sweet,” please stop!  I’m already uncomfortable enough.

My brother has always been a little more mouthy than me.  While I was no angel, I was also not the one who ran away from home twice and jumped out of our black Astro van at an intersection because of a verbal battle with my dad.   David fouled out of every single basketball game we ever played.  If he wasn’t tomahawk chopping an innocent shooter, he was asking the ref if he offended him in a former life.  Although his mouth launched some amazing fireworks in high school, it helped me understand that our greatest weaknesses are often times over-extensions of our greatest strengths.  Fortunately, God has transformed his mouth away from being a wrecking ball.  But I warn you – if you wanna get in a verbal battle with him…buckle up.



(written by David)
Ummm…how do you say, “he’s whacked” without saying “he’s whacked?”

Jason came out second.  I believe that was a foreshadowing of what was to come his entire life…second.  He was the second to hit a home run, second to dunk a basketball, and second to bench press his body weight.  But that’s ok, he turned out alright…he’s fully recovered from the emotional scars.

Jason called me the mouthy one.  I think it’s because when the bad guys came around our neighborhood as kids, I verbally walked them down while he hid behind the tree sucking his thumb.  Yes, I had issues as a kid – but who didn’t?  I still remember Jason wanting to throw a rock at a brand new 1982 Ford Thunderbird as it passed by our house, but he couldn’t get the guts up enough to do it.  As the rock left my hand that day I have often wondered why God made me the brazen one and him the calculating one.  Being in business together has brought a lot of clarity to this.
