If you follow my blog on a regular basis, you know I am a HUGE Mark Batterson fan. I have read most of his books and most recently The Circle Maker. I posted about it here. While I was away this past summer at a conference I had the pleasure of meeting him and getting a signed, early release copy of his Newest book, “All In”. The book is a challenge to Christians to truly follow Jesus with all you have and all you are. Is there anything stopping us from fully surrendering our entire lives to God? Are our dreams His dreams? Are our plans His plans? Is my heart and the desires of my heart fully consecrated to Him? A couple of my favorite quotes from the book:

“I know some people who have been saved for twenty-five years, but they don’t have twenty-five years of experience. They have one year of experience repeated twenty-five times”

“There comes a moment in our lives when enough is enough. The pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change”

If you are looking for a new read or if you feel God is challenging you to take a huge step of Faith Mark’s new book is for you!
