Early in the pandemic, I was talking with my friend Ralph Plumb about the role of compassion in the Kingdom of God and in society. Ralph is widely traveled with much of those travels focused on the relief of human suffering. He also served the Union Rescue Mission in Los Angeles as their President and CEO for a time. Our conversation was filled with stories of the transformative power of compassion. A book project was born.

An Undivided Heart: Living and Loving Like Jesus

An Undivided Heart: Living and Loving like Jesus

It is a journey, unique to you, that begins with your unique relationship with Jesus. Living with an undivided heart will naturally lead to living an undivided life. Cultivation of the heart flows into action.

“Both challenged and inspired me”

“An Undivided Heart both challenged and inspired me. In this era of great disruption, when many congregations and church leaders find programs, and strategic plans in disarray, Logan and Plumb invite the reader to return to the basics  upon which the Christian movement is based – how do we like Jesus have a relationship with the Father, and how do we like Jesus love other people, especially those who differ from us, and how do we like Jesus make disciples when it seems like most (but not all) are disinterested.” —Pastor Robert Wallace


“A must read”

“A must read for any Christ follower who desires to make a positive sustaining difference in the lives of those who are seeking to make sense out of the chaos of today’s world. Essentially practical, yet inspirational with real life examples of how to creatively and strategically collaborate in the application of God’s transforming love in times of these.” —Raymond Rood, Founder and Senior Consultant, The Genysys Group


 “May it inspire each of us to cultivate an undivided heart!”

“An Undivided Heart” interrogates our siloed approach to spiritual formation and seeks to inspire us to actively live and love like Jesus in a more integrated manner. Through their personal transparency, vulnerability, and gleanings, Bob and Ralph provide us with a practical framework and clear metrics to intentional and holistic following of Jesus, the only true pathway to whole-hearted living. we learn to live and love like Jesus, linking together our growing intimacy with God, our service to our community and our disciple-making activities. We learn how to make whole disciples from broken people; how we may live as an integrated person; how we may truly join God in His work in the world to overcome evil with good. May it inspire each of us to cultivate an undivided heart!” —Dennis Bachman, Executive Director and Lead Pastor of ViaCordis


“Contains both key holistic principles and very practical actions steps”

“An Undivided Heart” does what it promises. It looks back in history before it evaluates current thinking and then looks into the future. This process is extremely important to future fruitfulness. Not only that, it contains both key holistic principles and very practical actions steps. This book is a great addition to this subject.” —Colin Noyes, ResourceZone Australia

Decide to be intentional together and establish the rhythms that will help you reclaim your identity in Christ and activate your mission in the Kingdom of God. Transformation awaits!” —Wendy McWherter, founder Flourish Communities Inc


“A journey of discovery”

“An Undivided Heart represents a journey of discovery. The parables told in it will lead the reader to encounter both how to become a fish and a fisher of men; how to become a sheep and a shepherd; indeed, how to become a disciple and one who makes more disciples. Along the way we are challenged to spend a day “fasting from all digital material,” to light a candle to remember the Holy Spirit in the gatherings of disciples, and to have group discussions that will help us decide how the words of each chapter might be lived out in our lives. By God’s grace, this book will lead to more undivided hearts.” —Keith Shields, Transitional Leadership Pastor and Disciple

It is written in a way that is easy to comprehend with real life characters whose experiences help you discover things that can be applied to your own life. We found the practical tips very useful and small things that we could incorporate in our daily routines which will have us striving to live a life with an undivided heart. Thank you for this wonderful book filled with life changing truths and encourages us to live and love like Jesus.” —Beverly and John McNeil
