"Herein lies the remedy for the sad but common malady we see today: otherwise godly men and women pursuing God’s kingdom with worldly navigational equipment. I plan to buy a case load of Pursuing God’s Will Together upon its release and make it mandatory reading for all of our leaders. It can hardly come soon enough.”
Mark Buchanan, pastor, New Life Community Baptist Church, author of Spiritual Rhythm and Your Church Is Too Safe
