It was fun to join in the release day excitement for Erica Willis' brand new book Believe Boldly: The Power of Simple, Confident Prayer to Unleash the Supernatural. We talk about some of the things she learned in the process of writing this book and walk through a few practical tips for authors attending NRB for the 1st time.

About the Book:  We long to see firsthand the power of God as displayed in the Bible. Miracles, prophecy, dreams, healing--most of these tend to be missing from our normal, safe, predictable faith. Yet we tend to view any movement of God outside our own experience with mistrust and confusion. But what if we've got "normal" all wrong?

In these pages is an invitation to a new way of living: embracing God's power through simple yet bold prayer. It's for the night owl, the caffeine-addicted, even the skeptic, beckoning all of us out of our comfort zones with stories of spiritual breakthrough, mind-blowing miracles, and physical healing. Here are the tools you need to work through your doubts, open up to the miracles of God, and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. You will learn to hear God's voice, trust his leading, and walk empowered by limitless prayer. It is time to see God transform your faith into a thrill-seeking adventure.

About the Author:  Erica Willis is the founder and director of The Fives, an international prayer ministry. A leader in the local church for over 20 years, she has served as a church planter, children's pastor, small group director, and women's ministry director. She teaches weekly in the women's ministry at her church of 2,000, blogs regularly at BelieveBoldly.com, and speaks nationally at women's events and conferences. She and her husband, Joey, have two children and live in Weatherford, Texas.

I invited Erin Weidemann back to the podcast to talk about Deborah: The Belle of Leadership (book 5 in the Bible Belles series) and give us an update on her recent interviews, what she's learned as an accidental entrepreneur, and her new speaking partnership with World Vision.

About the Book:  The adventure continues in Book Five of the Bible Belles series. With the angel Mari by her side, Rooney has learned that God has given her four real superpowers: Prayer, Patience, Bravery, and Loyalty. Her transformation into a superhero is almost complete. What’s missing? The Bell of Leadership.

As she watches Deborah rise up and lead an entire nation to victory, Rooney realizes that true leadership means inspiring others and working together. Through the story of Deborah, Rooney learns that God is calling her to lead. Is she ready to answer the call? 

Come along with Rooney as she becomes the greatest superhero of all: a Bible Belle!

About the Author: Erin Weidemann is a teacher turned professional author. A former college athlete, Erin is also a five-time cancer survivor. She lives in Encinitas, California with her husband Brent and their daughter Rooney. In addition to being the co-founder and CEO of Bible Belles, Erin is the host of the Heroes For Her podcast.

I'm honored to have author David Amerland join me from across the pond to discuss his excellent book The Sniper Mind: Eliminate Fear, Deal with Uncertainty, and Make Better Decisions (St. Martin's Press, 2017).

About the Book:  Snipers are exceptional. The trained sniper is a complex fusion of hard skills such as weapons knowledge, situational awareness, knowledge of ballistics and physics, and soft skills such as emotional stability, empathy, and a stoic acceptance of the hardships associated with a particular set of circumstances. There are countless instances where a single sniper, embarking on a secret mission, would have to improvise, operate beyond any hope of support, and yet still manage to carry out the mission and get back home unharmed even though the enemy was actively hunting him.

For the first time ever, The Sniper Mind reveals the practical steps that allow a sniper’s brain to work in this superhuman precise, calculated way. It teaches readers how to understand and apply these steps, whether they are stuck in a cubicle facing mounting piles of work or sitting in a corner office making industry-defining decisions.

Through the explanation of advanced military training techniques and cutting-edge neuroscience, David Amerland's book provides concrete strategies and real-world skills that can help us be better:

-At our jobs 
-In our relationships
-In our executive decision making 
-In the paths we choose to take through life

By learning how snipers teach their minds to eliminate fears and deal with uncertainty we can also develop the mental toughness we need to achieve the goals that seem to elude us in business as well as in life.

About the Author:  David Amerland helps multi-national clients and start-ups to organize their SEO and Social Media strategies. He is a business journalist, author and international speaker. He blogs about social media and search engine optimization, writes for a number of prominent websites including Forbes, and advises corporations on their social media crisis management techniques. His books on SEO, Social Media and web trends demystify the complexity of the subjects they cover for readers around the world.

Back in September 2014 I had the pleasure of speaking with Rachel Held Evans about her book Faith Unraveled: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask Questions (Zondervan, 2014). This episode is pulled from the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt archives.

About the Book:  How an evolving spiritual journey leads to an unshakeable faith.

Eighty years after the Scopes Monkey Trial made a spectacle of Christian fundamentalism and brought national attention to her hometown, Rachel Held Evans faced a trial of her own when she began to have doubts about her faith.

In Faith Unraveled, Rachel recounts growing up in a culture obsessed with apologetics, struggling as her own faith unraveled one unexpected question at a time.

In order for her faith to survive, Rachel realizes, it must adapt to change and evolve. Using as an illustration her own spiritual journey from certainty to doubt to faith, Evans challenges you to disentangle your faith from false fundamentals and to trust in a God who is big enough to handle your tough questions.

In a changing cultural environment where new ideas seem to threaten the safety and security of the faith, Faith Unraveled is a fearlessly honest story of survival.

About the Author:  Rachel Held Evans is a New York Times best-selling author whose books include Faith Unraveled (2010), A Year of Biblical Womanhood (2012), and Searching for Sunday (2015). Hailing from Dayton, Tennessee—home of the famous Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925— she writes about faith, doubt and life in the Bible Belt. 

Rachel has been featured in The Washington Post, The Guardian, Christianity Today, Slate, The Huffington Post, The CNN Belief Blog, and on NPR, The BBC, The Today Show, and The View.  She served on President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, and keeps a busy schedule speaking at churches, conferences, and colleges and universities around the country. 

Rachel is married to Dan, and the two recently welcomed their first child - a baby boy. 

A lifelong Alabama Crimson Tide fan, Rachel’s preferred writing fuel is animal crackers and red wine.

I'm honored to welcome Kim Chaffin to The Shaun Tabatt Show to share about her encouraging new devotional Simply Blessed: Finding Joy in the Little Things (Broadstreet Publishing, 2018).

About the Book:  Why study the Bible? Who are the patriarchs? Am I really saved? Is there a special way to pray? New believers have many questions. But even the most experienced believers can overcomplicate life and fill the day with more busyness than meaning. Often the little things of life show us the true character of God. In Him we can find joy and blessing if we are willing to look.

Simply Blessed contains thirty-one heartfelt devotional stories for the woman seeking to know God for who He is: a loving God who longs to have a relationship with her. Kim focuses on the foundation of a woman s faith, tackling issues she faces on a daily basis and providing joyful and practical lessons for a woman s heart.

Discover a God of relationship not religion. He is never too busy. In the humorous, frustrating, and mundane parts of life, God is pouring out His love on you.

About the Author: God is in the everyday moments that many people overlook. This is where Kim Chaffin finds lessons from God, practical lessons that find their way from her heart to her keyboard. Kim created Heartfelt Ramblings of a Midlife Domestic Goddess® to help people see that God doesn't ask us to be religious, but he wants to have a relationship with you and me. He is comfortable, like a pair of fuzzy socks or pajamas that feel so good after a long day.

Priest Lake, Idaho, is Kim's favorite place to write. She cherishes summer days spent at the lake. Beyond the pages of Simply Blessed, Kim is a contributor for the Whatever Girls Ministry (thewhatevergirls.com) and LivingBetter50 magazine (livingbetter50.com).

God has not only given Kim a passion to write but also the desire to speak. She finds joy in sharing the Lord at women's events, weekend retreats, and sermons at church.

Kim is a wife of twenty-eight years and a mother of two. She is also a graduate of Eastern Washington University, where she earned a degree in sociology with an emphasis in crime corrections. Kim believes we must never stop growing and learning, which is why she is taking online classes through Portland Bible College.

Back in December 2014 I had the pleasure of speaking with Jen Wilkin about her book Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds (Crossway, 2014). This episode is pulled from the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt archives.

About the Book:  We all know it’s important to study God’s Word.

But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible?

Offering a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture, this book will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.

About the Author:  Jen Wilkin is a speaker, writer, and teacher of women’s Bible studies. During her fifteen years of teaching, she has organized and led studies for women in home, church, and parachurch contexts. Jen and her family are members of the Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas. She is the author of Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds.

I'm excited to welcome Leif Hetland back to The Shaun Tabatt Show to share about his latest book Called To Reign: Living and Loving from a Place of Rest.

About the Book:  Like most Christians, you long to fulfill your calling. You seek the inheritance God has promised you. And you work hard to serve Him well and enter into His rest.But what if your destiny is already within reach? What if you already have access to all the things He has promised? What if, instead of working for rest, you can actually work from rest?

The world, including most of the church, is working hard in order to find peace and rest. That’s why we see a constant cycle of restlessness around us. But we were designed to work from a place of rest, fully secure in our identity as children of God. This resting place is found in intimacy with the Father, where His family members experience complete acceptance and extravagant love.

The resting place is there, available from God anywhere, anytime

We are sons and daughters of a loving Father, not orphans trying to figure out who we are. We are called to reveal the true nature of God, and we cannot do that with an orphan mindset. When sons and daughters arise in the church, the world will begin to see the true nature of the Father and His family―a family that sees promises, not problems, and that reigns with Him!

Using his well-known illustration of the three chairs, Leif Hetland explores the four pillars of this resting place, addressing four crucial questions:

  • Identity: Who are you?
  • Intimacy: Where are you?
  • Inheritance: What do you have?
  • Destiny: What are you called to do?

The key to fulfilling your destiny is realizing the answers to each of these questions―in the order God designed for us.

This book is will help you experience everything God wants for you by finding a resting place for yourself and becoming a resting place for Him. It is about an entirely different way to see and live, a way that refreshes, restores, and brings life. It is an invitation into the fullness and abundance that empowers you to do what you were called to do―to reign with Him!

About the Author:  Leif Hetland is founder and president of Global Mission Awareness. He ministers globally bringing an impartation of God’s love, healing, and apostolic authority through a paradigm of kingdom family. A forerunner in modern-day missions, Leif has brought the gospel into the most spiritually dark areas of the world. Over one million souls have been saved through his ministry. He has written numerous books, including his best-sellers Giant SlayersSeeing Through Heaven’s Eyes and Healing the Orphan Spirit.

Back in 2013 I had the pleasure of sitting down with Sue Badeau at ICRS 2013 and talking about her book Are We There Yet?: Adopting and Raising 22 Kids!.

In the interview we discuss Sue and Hector’s amazing journey of parenthood and the many blessings and challenges that come with grafting foster children and special needs children into your family. We also discuss some of the ways the church can support and encourage the families in their congregation who have a calling to foster care and adoption. 

This episode is pulled from the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt archives.

About the Book:  “Come along with Hector and Sue Badeau on their ultimate road trip – adopting and raising 22 children, from diverse backgrounds with many special needs. Like any road trip, their story has twists and turns, detours and surprises. You’ll be inspired, laugh out loud and shed tears as you share their experiences in foster care and adoption, coping with teenage pregnancies, addictions, unimaginable accomplishments and raw moments of grief after the untimely deaths of three beloved sons. “Are We There Yet” is an entertaining story which also imparts nuggets of parenting wisdom for any parent or grandparent. It is packed with spiritual truths and life lessons for teachers, social workers, pastors and others who care about vulnerable children and families in our world today.

About the Author:  Susan Badeau (Sue) writes and speaks extensively on topics related to children, particularly those with special needs and is a frequent and passionate keynote speaker and workshop leader at state, regional and national conferences. Sue and her husband, Hector, are the lifetime parents of twenty-two children, two by birth and twenty adopted (three, with terminal illnesses, are now deceased). They have also served as foster parents for more than 50 children in three states, and as a host family for refugee youth from Sudan, Kosovo and Guatemala.

I'm long overdue to have my friend John Crotts back on the podcast. This time around we discuss his encouraging new book 'Graciousness: Tempering Truth with Love' (Reformation Heritage Books, 2018).

About the Book:  Sometimes we have important things to say to other Christians, but if we deliver our message ungraciously, they won’t benefit from it. Author John Crotts points out that God cares about how we say what we say: “It is not enough always to say the truth; you must also say the truth in love.” In Graciousness, the author addresses Christians who are zealous for God’s truth yet struggle to communicate it graciously— in a loving way. Filled with practical instruction and wise insights, this book includes a biblical description of graciousness, with a look at positive examples and commands from the Bible and methods for cultivating graciousness in various areas of the Christian life. Be equipped to speak the truth in love!

About the Author:  John Crotts is the pastor of Faith Bible Church in Sharpsburg, Georgia. The Lord has blessed John and his wife, Lynn, with three daughters and a son: Charissa, Danielle, Chloe, and Josiah.

I'm honored to have John Ramirez join me today on The Shaun Tabatt Show to talk about his new book Armed and Dangerous: The Ultimate Battle Plan for Targeting and Defeating the Enemy (Chosen Books, 2017).

About the Book:  It's time to push back the gates of hell! 

The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. Hell has unleashed fury against every believer. Yet many Christians live in denial, letting the enemy steal their blessings, destroy their relationship with Jesus and kill their purpose and identity. But no more!

With passion and insight gained from years on the frontlines of spiritual warfare, John Ramirez equips you with the biblical weapons and practical strategies you need to battle the enemy successfully, including how to

  • discern and shut down the enemy's tactics and next moves
  • fight with your God-given authority
  • break free from destructive patterns and replace them with godly ones
  • fortify your mind and heart against attacks
  • take back what the devil has stolen
  • grow in wisdom and maturity in Christ
  • and more!

Here is everything you need to fight for your purpose, your destiny, your family and your loved ones--and even for unbelievers so they, too, will have the opportunity to make it to the cross. 

About the Author:  In every generation God has always displayed his awesome deliverance and transforming power. Evangelist John Ramirez is another example of God’s mighty power to set the captives free. In his testimony, Author and Speaker, John Ramirez tells his true life story of how he was trained to be a satanic cult (Santeria and Spiritualist) high ranking priest in New York City—casting powerful witchcraft spells and controlling entire regions. Raised in an impoverished ghetto neighborhood, he grew up despising his father for his careless disregard of his family. John learned to survive the cold, harsh streets of the South Bronx. Looking for love and validation, he eventually found it in a new “family” of witches and warlocks who groomed him to become a high priest in their occult religion. His plunge into the dark side reached a boiling point on the night he sold his soul to the devil in a diabolical, blood-soaked ritual. With renewed fervor—and the mark of the beast now cut into his right arm—he actively recruited souls into this “unholy kingdom,” haunting the bars and clubs of NYC by night to find his next victims. John’s life continued on this dark path until God intervened through a miraculous, larger-than-life dream, revealing Himself for who He really is and literally snatching John back from the grips of hell.

In a style all his own, John unfolds God’s enormous power through his powerful testimony and teaches Christians as well as those trapped in the occult how to combat the enemy and be set free. His remarkable story is told in the book Out of the Devil’s Cauldron: A Journey from Darkness to Light. This intriguing story walks you through the dark alleys of the Santeria cult while exposing hidden secrets of darkness.

Many have come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ by John’s real and true to life testimony. He is a sought-out speaker by many who want to hear of his involvement in the highest levels of the occult and how he finally came out.

People from all ethnic backgrounds dabble in the occult and fall victims to this satanic underworld and never see the way out. John Ramirez is one in a million who made it out.

Honored to welcome my new friend Bob Hasson to the show to talk about his and Danny Silk's brand new book The Business of Honor: Restoring the Heart of Business.

About the Book:  Honor is the art of stewarding relationships well.

Business is all about relationships, and every day at work presents us with a choice: Will we fight for fear-free connections with our team members, employees, vendors, and customers for the sake of our mutual success? Or will we default into self-protection and self-serving and participate in a relational culture of disconnection?   
 
This is the choice between honor and dishonor, and it flows from our hearts and our core beliefs about people. 
 
In The Business of Honor, Bob Hasson and Danny Silk lay out a pathway for living with a heart of honor in business, from receiving your identity to investing in healthy relationships and taking the lead in building honoring culture in your company or organization.
 
About the Authors:  Bob Hasson is a businessman and leadership consultant. His greatest passion is strengthening leaders and their organizations, with specific focus on developing sound organizational structure, fiscal responsibility, and dynamic relationships on leadership teams. He is both the Founder and CEO of R.M Hasson Painting Contractors, Inc. For over thirty years, he has been active as a consultant and board member for churches, ministries, nonprofits, and school boards. Since 2012, he has traveled around the world with Danny Silk as a speaker and consultant for Loving on Purpose. He has been married for thirty years to his wife, Lauren, and they have four children.
 
Danny Silk serves on the Senior Leadership Team of both Bethel Church in Redding,CA and Jesus Culture in Sacramento,CA. He is the President and Co-Founder of Loving on Purpose, a ministry to families and communities worldwide. Danny is also the author of five books covering the subjects of building successful relationships, a culture of honor and strong families. Danny and Sheri married in 1984 and have three children and three grandchildren.

Absolutely thrilled to bring my buddy Chad Johnson on the podcast today! We're talking about his new book 1,000 Risks, which chronicles his crazy journey of accepting the challenge to take one thousand risks to impact people for Jesus.

About the Book:  Could God change the world through seemingly average, ordinary people like you and me?

One Thousand Risks is proof that Jesus can set you up to discover adventure in abundance.

With an all-out-fight against comfort, fear, and living half-heartedly present, One Thousand Risks will help you know how to experience a super-powered life of spiritual significance.

Your problem is fear--mostly the fear of man, fear of failure, and fear of rejection.

In response to a dare, I began deliberately and consistently fighting fear--one tiny risk at a time, right where I was--which translated into this awkward, awesome life with Jesus.

Have you ever sensed that you were created for something grand? Something way bigger than you could pull off on your own?

You were designed to carry more power than any instrument on the planet.

What if you left the unremarkable old for life in the messy, extravagant new?

Take a risk; your Father is king of the universe.

To discover spiritual significance in the messy, extravagant new, visit chadisliving.com or onethousandrisks.com.

About the Author:  An icon of independent music amongst those in the know--Chad Johnson was the director of A&R at what was one of the biggest independent record labels in the world. From DIY darlings to punk rock royalty, Chad seemed to fit right in at Tooth & Nail Records. After all, he'd paid his dues with his own little (failed) label, and every hardworking band knew his story.

Chad's true calling came at the peak of music industry success--an unexpected, undeserved twelve-year career generously affixing his name to an album or two. With his wife's nervous blessing, he abruptly left the conventional music world, one part impassioned and three parts foolish.

Cashing out his 401(k), gold plaques and the record collection, Chad began living an adventure that has led him, reluctantly, to every continent on the planet with Come&Live!.

Excited to welcome Jared C. Wilson to the podcast to talk about his new book Supernatural Power for Everyday People: Experiencing God's Extraordinary Spirit in Your Ordinary Life (Thomas Nelson, 2018). We talk about the Holy Spirit, why the miracle you're looking for might actually be right in front of you, and why Jared self identifies as a noncharismatic continuationist.

About the Book:  Would it change your life to know that there is a way to live your everyday life supernaturally? Most of us would say “yes,” and Jared C. Wilson’s new book reveals how. For the homemaker wondering how to get through the stress of washing dishes and making meals nobody seems to appreciate; for the cubicle jockey punching her time-card every day wondering if what she does really matters; for the teacher or leader wondering if he is making an impact; for the student afraid of the future; for every believer struggling to get through daily life, Supernatural Power for Everyday People offers the hope of meaning and purpose, and also the promise of power. We can get beyond just “getting by." We can prevail and live a life of far more joy, contentment, and peace than we ever thought possible.

A practical book written in a devotional tone, Supernatural Power for Everyday People shows readers how to rely more fully on the power of the Holy Spirit for growth and satisfaction in their lives.

About the Author:  Jared C. Wilson is the director of content strategy at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, managing editor of For the Church, and director of the Pastoral Training Center at Liberty Baptist Church in Kansas City, Missouri.

I'm excited to bring my friend Michael Lombardo on The Shaun Tabatt Show. We discuss his faith journey, how he used Facebook Live to grown his personal and ministry platform, and some of the great truths you'll find in his new book Immersed in His Glory (Destiny Image, 2018).

About the Book:  What keeps you from encountering Jesus in a greater way? Do you feel unfit to enter His presence? Perhaps you are stuck in a spiritual drought? Or maybe you worry that you simply don’t “know enough” to truly meet with God.

Every human being is hard-wired with a need for intimacy with God. When this need isn’t met, we search elsewhere and find ourselves broken and unfulfilled. Connecting with God is of the utmost importance!

In Immersed in His Glory, Michael Lombardo invites you to experience this vital union with the Holy Spirit that is greater than you’ve ever imagined—a continuous fellowship with God where a lifestyle of miracles, visions, and supernatural encounters becomes normal. These presence-saturated experiences are available to all believers!

Learn to overcome every obstacle that keeps you from the only place of true fulfillment and deep satisfaction—the glorious presence of God!

This practical message will give you:

  • Freedom from self-condemnation, guilt, and shame through intimacy with the Holy Spirit.
  • Guidance on how to abide in God’s presence during every situation and season of life
  • Keys to overcoming lies you’ve believed about God so you can access the deeper realms of His presence
  • A revelation of your inheritance—what has been freely given to you because of the lavish grace of Jesus.

Get ready to boldly enter the fullness of God’s glory. Take hold of the fulfilling, satisfying, glorious life you were born to live!

About the Author:  Michael Lombardo is an international minister, revivalist, and author. He’s preached the gospel with salvations, signs, and wonders in over twelve countries. He met his wife, Selina, while serving as a missionary with Iris Global in the bush of Mozambique. Together, they are the founders of Life Poured Out International, a ministry with a vision to reach the lost, ignite the church, and serve the poor. Their ministry is marked with the tangible move of God’s Spirit, especially in prophecy, healing, and manifestations of God’s glory. Michael has an unrelenting passion to spread the good news of Christ across the nations.

Today I have the pleasure of speaking with Bethel Church leader Havilah Cunnington about her brand new book Stronger than the Struggle: Uncomplicating Your Spiritual Battle (Thomas Nelson, 2018).

About the Book:  We all face challenges. On any given day, the problems of real life can take our breaths away. Our marriages, finances, relationships, and health are regular struggles, and that's just the beginning. Doesn't the Bible say the war has already been won? So why do we still battle?

In a down-to-earth, let’s-get-real approach, popular Bible teacher Havilah Cunnington cuts through the confusion and shows us how to 

  • Discern whether we’re dealing with battles within ourselves, resistance from God, or genuine fights with the Devil.
  • Throw off misconceptions about spiritual warfare, and understand what Jesus really said about our spiritual authority and the certainty we have in him.
  • Ask the right questions and build a realistic battle plan to win one day at a time.

With humor and honesty, Cunnington lays out practical tools to thrive in the face of hardship, enabling us to walk forward in the confidence that, because of Jesus, we really are stronger than the struggle.

About the Author:  Havilah Cunnington has been in full-time ministry for twenty years, and serves as the Executive Director of Moral Revolution and a pastor at Bethel Church. Havilah and her husband, Ben, lead a nonprofit and an online platform called Truth to Table, reaching the world with Bible studies, messages, and lifestyle leadership tools. Havilah and Ben live in Redding, California, with their four sons: Judah, Hudson, Grayson, and Beckham.

Excited to have Mark Wilson back on the podcast after a three year hiatus. This time around, we're talking about his new book The Spirit Said Go: Lessons in Guidance from Paul's Journeys (Wipf and Stock, 2017).

About the Book:  "God's got a plan for your life" is an aphorism frequently heard by Christians. But how do you discover that plan? The Spirit Said Go is designed to help believers find God's will. Using Paul's journeys in Acts as examples, Wilson discusses twenty lessons on guidance drawn from these journeys. Using his firsthand experience traveling along these routes in the Eastern Mediterranean, he reads between the lines offering additional insights into Luke's account. He also provides important geographical and archaeological information to illustrate Paul's world among the Jews, Greeks, and Romans. Wilson then illustrates each lesson with autobiographical vignettes drawn from his own spiritual pilgrimage of over forty years as a follower of Jesus. Friends and colleagues also share stories of similar experiences of guidance. Each chapter ends with reflection questions that help the reader integrate the lesson into Christian living. The volume offers an inductive Bible study combined with practical, spiritual insights regarding how God guides his people then and now.

About the Author:  Mark Wilson is the founder and director of the Asia Minor Research Center in Antalya, Turkey. He currently has academic appointments at Stellenbosch University, the University of South Africa, Ridley College, and Regent University. He is the author of Biblical Turkey (2010) and Victory through the Lamb (2014).

The amazingly prolific Tricia Goyer joins me today on the podcast to discuss her newest book Walk It Out: The Radical Result of Living God’s Word One Step at a Time (David C. Cook, 2017).

About the Book:  Women often pack their lives with family, friends, and faithful service, yet still end up feeling empty and unfulfilled. In Walk It Out, Tricia Goyer demonstrates to women that walking out the mandates of Scripture allows God to spark passion and mission within them.
 
Whether believers realize it or not, God intended for them to do what the Bible says: adopt the orphan, take the gospel into all the world, and care for the needy. These are mandates that point believers down the path of true living and eternal life.
 
Sometimes those steps are easy, but many times they require a move outside of what feels safe or secure. When women stop focusing on their own dreams and purposes, and instead focus on God’s dreams and purposes, everything changes.
