Awake

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know I am a little biased, but I truly believe Joel’s book is breaking ground in the world of publishing.

 

It is filled with links to a video that takes you deeper into the stories. In a couple of years, I believe we will see a whole lot more of this book format. Beyond that, the message is brilliant, the journey mesmerizing – you won’t be able to put it down!

Below is the review I wrote for the jacket. I have also added a couple of videos. The first is the trailer – you will probably love the music for this one. The second is for all those who have heard me tell the story of my brothers crane jump. Enjoy, then go buy the book HERE!

My Review – “I spoke with a warlord, traversed Antarctica’s wilderness, prayed with a slave, covertly filmed a protest in Tiananmen Square, laughed with a girl, and cried with an orphan after an earthquake devastated Haiti. I fell in love, had my heart broken, and encountered an even greater love. Joel masterfully tells the story – his, yours, and mine. His writing stirs the reader to dream. His wild adventures awaken a hunger to have our own. Inspired, humorous, and packed with revelation, Awake is just what the title promises, a full-on invitation to dream, love, and live our own story – a story that can change the world.”

More Than Enough

I am looking back now on these past years and am amazed by His love for me. He likes me and wants nothing from me other than friendship.

Where Once I Feared To Walk

We reminisced about God’s goodness. Especially in light of past disappointments and failures.

LEAVING (& FINDING) JESUS WITH DEREK TURNER & JASON CLARK

God’s sovereignty revealed by Jesus through cruciform, self-giving love, the nature of trust, intimacy, and union, and the transforming truth that there is no shadow of turning with God, in this podcast the guys explore Jason’s upcoming book, Leaving (& Finding) Jesus. This conversation juxtaposes an inclusive, reconciling, self-giving, unconditional view of God’s love against an excluding, hierarchal, punishment-focused, conditional view of God’s love. 

ROD WILLIAMS / UNION WITH DISTINCTION

Union, a Triune God, mutual indwelling others-centered love (perichoresis) approaching scripture to discover Jesus, and communion are some of the themes Rod Williams dives into. What if “all” means “all” and God isn’t distant? There is no distance, no separation in God and this conversation is a beautiful invitation to awaken to that discovery and our union with Him.

But What About Sin?

Yes, sin is a big deal, and our job as Christians is to remove the condemnation that is associated with it, not add to it. We are invited to, like Christ, release kindness, and walk people into freedom. “There is, therefore, no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…” (Rom 8:1) That’s us! And I would add, ‘therefore there should be no condemnation from those who are in Christ Jesus.’ We can’t give away what we don’t have…
