Product Description

Review

What sounds loud and clear in the pages of this book is Mark's deep desire to see Christians set free to live fully for the glory of God, wherever they are. Where Monday mornings can be as filled with worshipful focus as Sunday mornings. For too long, mission has been seen as the preserve of a handful of specialists. We know this isn't true, but still, church culture celebrates mainly those who are directly paid to do 'God's work'. Mark's book offers us a beautiful revolution - what if all of us recognized our equality of calling, that God intends for all of us to be his missionaries right where we are: pastry-chef, plumber or party-planner? --Rachel Gardner, speaker, writer on youth issues and President of the Girl's Brigade

There is surely no more urgent issue for today's church than how to motivate and equip every Christian to work and witness for God's kingdom. This wise, thoughtful and practical book should challenge and encourage all of us who follow Christ to live more effectively for him in whatever place or position we have been called to. Heartily recommended! --Revd Canon J.John, author and speaker

A fantastic book. Clear, well argued, brilliantly illustrated from both Scripture and modern life, and above all, passionate. Mark, like the great Old Testament prophets, is urging us with both wit and wisdom to get the church out of the buildings and into the world God loves. Both biblical and practical, this should be studied by individuals, home groups and churches. And then acted upon. Truly a word for today. --Mike Pilavachi, Soul Survivor

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Paul Lambert on 21 May 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is packed with stories of the difference that people's christian faith has made to their day to day life - everything from MDs of toy companies to old ladies in Gateshead! These stories are wound around a practical framework for seeing the full breadth of the difference that the gospel can make.

It is an easy read - providing both personal inspiration and material for presenting in other contexts (I used one story as part of a church talk).

Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I'm yet to reach the end of this book, but am so thoroughly enjoying it I'm writing the review now! Once again, Mark has written a book that masters the combination of being easy to read, deeply challenging and horizon broadening. It has helped me to see my role in God's salvation work differently, not limited by where I am and not just about evangelism. Recommending it to friends already!

Format: Paperback
This is the book for every Christian - packed full of stories from every walk of life, this inspirational book explains that every person is loved by God, and can be used by God wherever they are, whatever they do, employed, retired, or in a local community. Many books 'educate', but this is a book that can change lives, raising the horizons for us all. Buy one - better still, buy two and give one away.

Format: Paperback
I found that Mark's blend of biblical reflection and real-life stories powerfully awakened my imagination for the everyday life of faith in today's world. There are many books I've read that have really motivated me to want to live out my faith authentically and gracefully, but very few have helped me see what I can do in a way that seems achievable. This book did that for me, without falling into the trap of being prescriptive. Mark offers a framework for seeing both God and our ordinary, daily world with fresh eyes, a framework that opens up a fresh perspective on contemporary Christian discipleship. It's a fun read too. Which is also good news. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Great real-life stories that encourage and inspire.
Easy to read and hard to put down.
Also refreshingly honest that sharing one's faith is not straightforward or easy, as well as the importance of going beyond words to expressing fruitfulness in godly character, good work, grace, moulding character, being a mouth piece for truth and justice and a messenger of the richness of the Gospel.
If you are serious Bible believing disciple of Christ and you want to make your faith relevant in our complex world, this would be a great encouragement to you.

Format: Paperback
An inspirational and joy-filled book. This is what living out our faith is all about - giving those around us a glimpse of the love and grace and wonder of God's kingdom, being God's person wherever we find ourselves, for such a time as this.

The many stories illustrate how the radiant beauty of God's glory shines out through the lives of ordinary people living ordinary lives.

Highly, highly recommended - I'll be buying more copies to give as gifts.

What a wonderful book for every person who wants to reach their community, work place, family or any where they find themselves on a daily basis, with the love of Christ. I thought it was beautifully written, in a non condemning style, but gently encourages you be Jesus where you are. I loved it and it is a book that I would highly recommend any person to read if they have the heart to see change in the environment that they find themselves in.

Fantastic book about serving God in your sphere of influence, i.e. those you meet every day, whether that is family members, carers or business associates. It challenges your attitude to these people, how you deal and act with them and how you can show love, react with compassion and reach out to them.
