Not to be self-promotional or anything, but my most recent book saw its biggest bulk purchase ever over the holidays. One church bought a copy of Making Life Count for each person in their congregation as a Christmas present—over 3,000 copies.

In case you haven’t seen it, the whole purpose of the book is to walk you through a simple, coherent, and effective process for making disciples at the local church level. Part discipleship and part basic life skills, Making Life Count is a simple way to approach those areas of life that get in our way. It’s about how to keep weeds out and make room for the seeds to flourish and grow.

The book is designed to be read in community:  13 chapters, 13 weeks, 13 small group discussion guides at the end of each chapter. The goal is to help you get your people grounded in the faith– in practical ways that take their real lives and real problems into account.
